Clubs up and down the country will all hope that their players return from the international break without any injury concerns.
However, it appears that Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp could have a big one on their hands as one of their star men had to be withdrawn.
Mohamed Salah, who had netted directly from a corner, had to leave the field during Egypt’s 4-1 win against Swaziland.
Twitter account King Fut have revealed that the national side do not believe Salah’s injury is too serious, although confirmed that he would need to have a further assessment to understand the full extent.

Egypt assistant manager, Hany Ramzy, said: “Primary diagnosis confirm it’s just a strain and no tear is apparent. But the player will need to undergo scans to determine the extent of the injury and time to heal.
“Nothing major. We’ll do the best we could to help him recover. I hope he’s fit as soon as possible.”
Liverpool will be anxiously awaiting the results of the scans to find out the true extent to Salah’s latest injury.
The Egyptian is an important player for Klopp’s side, and despite not being able to put in a number of solid performances so far this season, he remains vital to the way the Anfield outfit play.
There is always a concern that injuries could be worse than they appear and the Premier League outfit will be crossing their fingers that he will be available for selection when they return to action against Huddersfield Town next weekend.
