Liverpool Rocked By Huge Injury Blow

Mane picked up the problem on global duty with Senegal and was withdrawn late on in Saturday's 2-0 World Cup qualifying triumph over Cape Verde.

Liverpool have announced that Sadio Mane could be out for up to six weeks after picking up an injury on worldwide duty.

The Premier League giants have confirmed that as such the former Southampton winger is looking at up to six weeks out of action.

Liverpool have been dealt a major injury blow with the news Sadio Mane has injured his hamstring on worldwide duty with Senegal and is out for six weeks.

Liverpool's 2016-17 season fell apart during Mane's absence at the African Nations Cup in January - in the seven matches he missed, their only win came against League Two Plymouth in an FA Cup replay.

But the striker is set to miss the game at Anfield in addition to Liverpool's league clash against Tottenham and both Champions League group fixtures against Maribor.

He has already missed three domestic matches this season after receiving a suspension following his sending off at Manchester City last month.

Mane has netted three goals for the Reds so far this season and is behind just Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino in the scoring charts.

They average 2.2 Premier League goals with Mane in the team, compared to 1.6 goals in his absence.
