Salah was taken off the pitch on a stretcher in the second half on Saturday after colliding with Newcastle's goalkeeper.
Liverpool star Mohamed Salah was carried off the pitch in a stretcher after colliding with Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka during Saturday afternoon's Premier League clash.
The Egyptian forward suffered an apparent head injury during the dangerous collision, which occurred at the 68-minute mark, that left him lying on the turf for several minutes as Liverpool's medical staff attended to him. Dubravka's hip appeared to hit Salah's head.
Salah required lengthy treatment before being stretchered off the turf clutching his head. The game was locked at 2–2 in the second half when the injury occurred. Divock Origi replaced Salah on the field for Liverpool and went on to score the game-winning goal in the 86th minute.
Salah is the Premier League's top scorer this season, netting his 22nd goal just 28 minutes into Saturday's win.
After the game, Jurgen Klopp remained optimistic about Salah's chances of potentially being fit for Liverpool's midweek Champions League clash with Barcelona, but the forward's health is currently up in the air with the season close to an end.
.@LFC manager Jürgen Klopp remains optimistic over @MoSalah’s fitness for @FCBarcelona - although it may be more in hope than expectation. “He was fine but of course we have to wait,” he said. Good to seem him walking out of St James’ Park comfortably at least pic.twitter.com/jodOFccwf9— Carl Markham (@carlmarkham) May 4, 2019
