Liverpool will monitor the fitness of two star players who picked up injuries while on international duty, according to Sky Sports.

Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk were both involved in action for their countries over the weekend, but the pair suffered knocks in their outings, and as a result the Reds will keep an eye on them in the hope they will both be fit to feature against Huddersfield Town at the weekend.

Liverpool will return from the international break in third place in the Premier League table, and face a tricky test away to the Terriers in the evening kick off on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp’s men are still unbeaten in the top flight this term, and one of the reasons for that has been the sensational start to the season that van Dijk has made.

The centre-back continued his excellent beginning to the campaign when he joined up with the Netherlands, scoring the opening goal in their 3-0 win over Germany on Saturday evening, before he aggravated a previous rib problem. He will be looking to maintain his form when he gets back to Anfield, should he be passed fit.

Salah has not yet hit the heights he managed last season for the Reds, but he bagged himself a goal while on international duty before he sustained a muscle injury. Everyone will be hoping he will be fit to feature against Huddersfield at the John Smith’s Stadium.

The pair returned to Liverpool early, and will miss the matches their country plays on Tuesday in a bid to be fit for the weekend clash.

Klopp is also said to be closely monitoring the fitness of key midfielder James Milner, who went off injured in the 0-0 draw with Manchester City prior to the international break.

All three men will be given as long as possible to prove their fitness, before the Reds head to Yorkshire on Saturday evening.
