Salah's absence represents a strong blow to Liverpool, which will compete in the final without 3 of its most prominent stars in the attack, namely Salah, Uruguayan Darwin Nunez, and Portuguese Diogo Jota.

Salah did not miss any of the previous ten final matches that Liverpool played during his presence, and Sunday’s final will be the first final that the Egyptian star will miss since joining Liverpool’s ranks.

With Mohamed Salah, Liverpool played 10 final matches, in the Champions League, FA Cup, League Cup, European Super Cup, Club World Cup and Community Shield.

It is not known yet whether Salah has traveled to London to accompany the team and celebrate the coronation in the event of victory, as he did not appear in any of the team’s videos on Sunday.
