Liverpool's Mohamed Salah to sit out Egypt's March matches

With Manchester City and Liverpool both having key fixtures in the coming weeks, the FC crew wonder who can avoid fatigue to get job done.
Former Liverpool striker Ian Rush says with 13 games left in the Premier League season, there are still plenty of ups and downs to come for Liverpool.
