Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and Andy Robertson are still struggling with ankle injuries and will likely miss upcoming match against Crystal Palace after the international break.
Salah sustained his injury during the Reds’ 2-1 win over Leicester on October 5 from Hamza Choudhury’s challenge.
He then missed the 1-1 draw with Manchester United and couldn’t complete 90 minutes in game against Aston Villa on November 2.
The Egyptian’s injury became worse after match against Manchester City that ended in 3-1 on Sunday.
He insisted he was fit enough to play for his country in AFCON qualifiers against either Kenya or Comoros on Thursday and Sunday, respectively.
But the Egyptian medical team have ruled him out after making him undergo a scan.
Salah will also not likely play against Crystal Palace on November 23 but he will be given a chance to prove his fitness before the game.
As for Andy Robertson, the Scottish defender has withdrawn from Scotland duty for their upcoming fixtures with Kazakhstan and Cyprus.
The defender suffered a swollen ankle on Sunday’s match but like Salah, had insisted to report for duty in his national team.
He was left out of the game with Cyprus but will remain in the team a couple of days before returning to Merseyside to be assessed.
This also means he will likely not join the trip to Selhurst Park on November 23.
