Salah was left limping from the field late on at Anfield on Saturday following a rash challenge from Hamza Choudhury, which left Reds boss Jurgen Klopp angry after the full-time whistle.
According to ESPN journalist Melissa Reddy, however, the ankle injury the Egyptian attacker suffered was not as serious as first feared, with a scan showing that Salah suffered a twisted ankle.
The journalist adds that Liverpool are not yet ruling the forward out of the Premier League clash with Manchester United later this month, saying that it is too early to tell if he will be fit to make that game.
Mohamed Salah suffered a twisted ankle against Leicester. No major issue flagged on his scan. The Egyptian’s injury will continue to be assessed and treated. #LFC not ruling him in or out v Manchester United at this stage as it is too early in the healing process to judge
