Mohamed Salah has returned to training for Liverpool ahead of their decisive Premier League clash with Wolves on Sunday.

During Liverpool’s 3-2 victory at Newcastle United last weekend, Salah had a nasty collision with goalkeeper Martin Dubravka in the second half.

The Egyptian superstar was stretchered off in tears and was sidelined during Liverpool’s sensational 4-0 comeback victory over Barcelona in their Champions League semi-final encounter due to a head injury.

Ahead of the Reds’ Premier League finale, however, Salah has returned to training at the club’s Melwood ground.

News of Salah’s progress will be warmly received by Liverpool as they attempt to leapfrog leaders Manchester City, who sit one point above them in the standings, to win their first league crown in 29 years.

Meanwhile, Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson and full-back Andrew Robertson should feature against Wolves on Sunday after shaking off knocks they received mid-week.

Although the same cannot be said for Brazilian forward Roberto Firmino, who will continue to work on his recovery from a muscular injury.

“The famous three words of this week in the dressing room: ‘It’s only pain’,” said Klopp on the Liverpool’s website.

“Very important for all the young lads to learn, I’ve said that already to the boys. Hendo said, ‘It’s only pain’, Robbo said, ‘It’s only pain’ – but it was real pain, wow!

“Unfortunately, Robbo could deal with the pain but only the rest of his body couldn’t because he couldn’t really activate the muscle anymore, some nerve hit or whatever.

“They should be fine [for Sunday].

“Bobby not [available] for the weekend, but we have time [before the Champions League final] and that should be enough.

“Mo [Salah] looked good around the celebrations after the game, to be honest! The day before yesterday and yesterday he was running outside and will be part of training today.”

The Liverpool and Wolves match will begin at 16:00 (CET) on Sunday.
