Mohamed Salah has returned to first team training ahead of Liverpool’s UEFA Champions League clash against Genk on Wednesday (via @JamesPearceLFC).
Is Liverpool's defence starting to be a bit of a worry?
The Egyptian missed the Reds’ 1-1 draw against Manchester United with injury, but he looks set to be fit enough for the game in Belgium.
Salah has once again been a regular in Jurgen Klopp’s team this season, featuring in 12 games across all competitions, scoring six goals and providing three assists in that time (via Transfermarkt).
Whilst it is unconfirmed whether he will go back into the starting line-up for their next game, it does seem likely that he will play if he is fit given the Reds only have three points from their opening two group matches in Europe (via BBC Sport).
Naturally the Liverpool fans are delighted to see the winger back, though some have suggested he should be rested against Genk on Wednesday.
They believe that the Premier League fixture against Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend should be the priority, and therefore do not want to risk Salah ahead of that game.
Here is how some fans reacted to news that Salah was back in training…
Hopefully wont travel to Genk and gets full fitness for Sunday. Would like to see Brewster in the CL team and Elliott on the bench

Wana see Milner-Hendo-Ox-Lallana-Shaqiri, Origi tomorrow vs Genk so we can see Fabinho-Keita-Gini vs Spurs. 4231 Narrow with 5 mids. Let Salah rest a few more games. Need him fresh for Spurs.

Agree. We should win tomorrow without Salah. We need him fit for new three points in the Prem…
