Liverpool will have Mohamed Salah in their line-up on Sunday when they bid to win their first league title in 30 years.

Jurgen Klopp confirmed on Friday at his news conference that the Egyptian will be fit to play after he missed Tuesday’s 4-0 win over Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals with a concussion.

Salah had suffered a head injury in last Saturday’s 3-2 win at Newcastle United and had not been medically cleared to face Barcelona.

But he will now face Wolverhampton Wanderers in a game the club must win to have any chance of being Premier League champions.

Liverpool need the three points and need Manchester City to fail to win at Brighton and Hove Albion.

Andy Robertson, who was substituted at half time against Barcelona is also fit, but Roberto Firmino is ruled out.

“The famous words in the dressing room this week have been ‘it’s only pain,'” Klopp said at a news conference on Friday.

“Hendo said it was only pain, Robbo said it was only pain. They should be fine. Bobby [Firmino], not for the weekend.

“Mo looked good running around the celebrations [following the Barcelona win]. Yesterday and the day before he was running outside. He will be part of training today.”
