Liverpool were dealt a huge blow in the FA Cup final as Mo Salah was forced off after 32 minutes.

The Reds were sweating over goalkeeper Alisson Becker when he appeared to be in some serious discomfort after a collision with Marcos Alonso.

But while the Brazilian goalkeeper was able to shake it off, moments later Mo Salah was sat in the turf after picking up an injury.

Jurgen Klopp decided to take no risks ahead of the upcoming Champions League final with Real Madrid in Paris and promptly substituted his top scorer for Diogo Jota.

Salah wasn’t in tears like in the 2018 Champions League final following that Sergio Ramos challenge, but was visibly furious and walked straight down the tunnel.

There’s no update on the type of injury Salah sustained or the severity of it as of yet but of course everyone connected with Liverpool will be hoping it’s only minor.

Midfielder Fabinho was ruled out of the Chelsea clash with a hamstring injury picked up against Aston Villa in midweek, meaning skipper Jordan Henderson slotted into the deep-lying role.

The former Monaco man did travel with the squad to Wembley and there’s optimism he will be fully fit for the Madrid showdown.
