Liverpool's Mané out for six weeks with hamstring injury

Liverpool's Mané out for six weeks with hamstring injury

Mane's injury was confirmed by Liverpool on their official website on Tuesday.

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane could be out for up to six weeks with a hamstring injury picked up on worldwide duty with Senegal.

The timing is also all wrong for the manager, with high-flying Manchester United visiting on Saturday morning and Klopp needing a positive result to kick-start Liverpool's season.

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.

Mane has scored three goals in five league appearances so far this season.

His form since making the switch to Anfield has earned him a place on France Football's 30-man shortlist for the Ballon d'Or.

Mane has been one of the Reds' best players since he arrived last summer and had only just returned from a three-match ban following his red card against Manchester City last month.

He will also be absent for the Reds' midweek Champions League clash at Maribor, along with a visit to Wembley to play Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on 22nd October.

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