After losing in the AFCON final, Liverpool’s Mo Salah is in contention to face Leicester.

Egypt was defeated in the Africa Cup of Nations final just four days ago on Thursday.

Senegal defeated Egypt on penalties in the Cameroon final on Sunday, leaving Egyptian captain Salah upset.

The attacker was denied a penalty kick, which was saved for the potentially deciding fifth kick, only for Liverpool teammate Sadio Mane to settle the shootout in Senegal’s favor before it even went that far.

On Monday, Mane and his teammates returned to Senegal to celebrate the country’s first-ever AFCON trophy. He will not play against the Foxes, but Salah has already returned to Merseyside.

“The first thing Mo told me when I spoke to him was, ‘I’m ready,'” Klopp told the Liverpool website.
