Now a bigger challenge lies ahead for Liverpool boss Klopp with Salah’s absence.

Who will step up for Liverpool in front of the goal with Salah’s absence?

Out of the 26 games, the winger has played, Liverpool have registered 69 goals in which Salah has registered 23 goals.

With now Salah and Mane gone, Klopp is left with Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino, Divock Origi, and Takumi Minamino as frontmen to lead the Reds’ attack. Moreover, midfielder Oxlade Chamberlain can also contribute more offensively.

All five Reds combined have scored 29 goals so far. With Diogo Jota the highest among all with 12 goals in 21 games (all competitions). Apart from the Portuguese, all other forwards have been in and out of the team.

Now, Klopp has to find the right balance without the Africans. The Covid-19 outbreak and injuries have already left the German with limited options and with the absence of the African trio, things might be getting more complicated.

Meanwhile, in AFCON Salah’s Egypt will open their campaign with a game against Nigeria. Mane’s Senegal will face Zimbabwe while Keita’s Guinea will open proceedings against Malawi.
