Salah’s injury is a huge cause for concern for Liverpool

But the victory was somewhat tainted by the injury to Salah, who is now a doubt for Liverpool’s second-leg match against Barcelona on Tuesday evening.

The Reds forward was left clutching his head after colliding with Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka.

The Egyptian, who leads the scoring charts in the top-flight this season, was replaced by Origi after 73 minutes with the match level at 2-2.

And the Belgian quickly made his mark on the game after latching onto a lovely Xherdan Shaqiri delivery with four minutes remaining.

The result means the title race will definitely go down to the final match of the season, with title-rivals Man City to play Leicester at home on Monday evening.

However, Liverpool fans are nervous that they may be without their talisman for the remainder of the season following his worrying collision.

After the game, Klopp said: “The doctor had to make a decision and the decision was off the pitch. When we came in he was sitting in the dressing room watching the game. He was fine but we have to wait.”
