Liverpool's Mané out for six weeks with hamstring injury

Mane picked up the problem on global duty with Senegal and was withdrawn late on in Saturday's 2-0 World Cup qualifying triumph over Cape Verde.

"It has now been confirmed that he picked up an injury during that fixture that could keep him out of action for up to six weeks", the statement said.

SADIO MANE is the latest player to pick up an injury on worldwide duty which will sideline the Liverpool ace for up to six weeks.


Strikers Daniel Sturridge and Dominic Solanke will also vie for a starting berth in Mane's absence, while Klopp may instead choose to deploy Philippe Coutinho higher up the pitch alongside Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah in attack against United at Anfield.

That brought them only four goals across a 1-1 Premier League draw with Burnley and back-to-back meetings with Leicester, who knocked Liverpool out of the Carabao Cup before the Reds responded with a 3-2 league win.

Mane has started the season in blistering fashion and was crowned August's Premier League Player of the Month after three league goals.

The forward was named among FIFA's 30-man shortlist for the 2017 Ballon d'Or award on Monday, but will now face further time out for Liverpool having already missed three games through suspension following his red card against Manchester City.
