Champions League: Liverpool's Salah, Firmino ruled out of Barcelona game

Salah could be a doubt for Liverpool's last two games of the season as the Reds take on Barcelona in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final on Tuesday, before the league leaders play Wolves at home next Sunday.

The Egyptian was forced from the pitch with a head injury during Saturday evening's 3-2 victory at Newcastle United and will not be available for the meeting with the La Liga champions.

Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that both Salah and Roberto Firmino will miss the match, the latter continuing to recover from a muscle injury. Saturday's 3-2 victory at Newcastle, secured with yet another late victor by Divock Origi, means they have just 90 minutes left to wrestle the Premier League trophy from Manchester City, who can reclaim top spot with a win at home to Leicester City on Monday. "But we can not do it". "He feels OK, but it is not good enough from a medical point of view", he said. He would not be allowed to play.

"That's all. He's desperate, everything, but we can't do it".

Klopp said that his team will approach the game step-by-step, and hope to use the Anfield atmosphere to their advantage.

"Let's give it a try, that's how we always did it and that's what we will do again".

"Together with our supporters this was a long season and there's a little chance to make it even longer".

Four times in their last seven league outings Liverpool have won the game in the final 10 minutes.

"Today was a big fight, we knew that beforehand".

"If we do fall short this season we will be back next season and we just need to keep going and keep going, and hopefully get what this club deserves", added Robertson. "It is important if we could score in the first 10 minutes and there will be quite a lot of pressure on them but everything is possible at Anfield".
