Egypt’s football legend Mohamed Salah was injured during the game between Liverpool and Tottenham in the Premier League, after scoring the second goal at the 74th minute.
Salah suffered a twisted ankle in Saturday’s late victory over Leicester and failed to play the next match against Manchester United. He had returned to the Liverpool squad for Wednesday’s Champions League match against Genk, which ended with 4-1 for Liverpool.
Salah scored his side’s winning goal when he successfully shot a penalty in the second half of the game.
He also scored the eighth goal of the season and the 50th in 58 games at Anfield.
UK media outlets said that Liverpool has won six and drawn three of the last 10 league matches at home, to rank first place with 28 points.
Salah was selected in October among the 100 greatest players of the 21st century according to a list by ten of The Independent’s football writers, who ranked the Egyptian striker in 25th place.
Salah last year suffered a shoulder injury after Sergio Ramos injured his arm in a tussle during the Champions League final in May, which Liverpool lost. Real Madrid ended the match 3-1 in their favor. Salah left the field only 30 minutes from the beginning of the game.
It was later announced that Salah had sustained an injury in his left shoulder, and could be seen with his hand in a sleeve.
