Why is Mo Salah not playing for Liverpool against Leicester and when will Egyptian return?

LIVERPOOL have an important clash with table-toppers Leicester – but Mo Salah won't be able to help his team.

Salah has been in brilliant form this season, scoring eight goals in eight games for the Premier League champions so far.

But Jurgen Klopp will have to do without him following his time away on international duty with Egypt over the past couple of weeks.

Why isn't Mo Salah playing against Leicester?

Salah tested positive for Covid-19 while on international duty with Egypt.

However, a video surfaced the same week which showed Salah dancing at his brother's wedding.

Salah has been self-isolating since the incident last week.

When will he return?

Salah will definitely miss the game with Leicester.

The Egyptian will also likely miss out on Liverpool's Champions League clash with Atalanta.

What has Jurgen Klopp said about it?

"He is in a good place. He feels well," The German explained.

"There is nothing to say in public about all the things I talk to my players about but I can say in the summer I was in Germany and a friend moved his birthday party because I was there.

"There were 50 people attending. I decided at the last minute not to go and it was allowed in Germany. It was outside but I did not go.

"In other countries there is more social pressure on you and a brother's wedding is a very special moment.

"What I can say is that my players are all incredibly disciplined. There were some cases but they all know about the situation.

"But sometimes it doesn't work out like this and something happens, and we are in the situation we are in, but all the rest is between me and Mo, and we did that already so we are fine."
