And as the game dragged on at Wembley, Liverpool returned to the pitch without star defender Van Dijk.

The reasoning behind his exit from the pitch confirmed but the Dutchman cut a disfigured look on the bench.

Van Dijk was replaced by Joel Matip while Salah came out for Diego Jota.

The two will now face a battle to be fit for Liverpool’s next crucial games.

They are still in contention for the Premier League title, three points behind Manchester City with two games remaining.

Jurgen Klopp’s side travel to Southampton on Tuesday night, before completing their Premier League campaign against Wolves at Anfield next Sunday.

Salah is also involved in a battle to win the Premier League Golden Boot.

He has scored 22 goals in 34 league appearances this season.
