Predicted line-up without Sadio Mane for Premier League game against Manchester United

Predicted line-up without Sadio Mane for Premier League game against Manchester United

Mane was absent for two large spells last term due to his participation in the Africa Cup of Nations before a season-ending knee injury in the Merseyside derby in March.

The 24-year-old attacker suffered a hamstring injury during Senegal's 2-0 win against Cape Verde in the World Cup qualifier on Saturday evening.

Six weeks is a long time in football, and it just so happens to come at a awful time for Liverpool as they face Manchester United and Tottenham in their next two Premier League games.

"And 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".

Since signing for Liverpool from Southampton for a fee of £34 million in 2015, Mane has been in excellent form and has left a gaping hole in the side whenever he has not been available for selection.


He says only Mane, Mohamed Salah and Philippe Coutinho are the sources of goals in the Reds team.

Mane is the pivotal threat in attack for Senegal who have otherwise switched their forwards around during the qualifying campaign‚ as they are still seeking consistency from their strikers.

He will also miss three Champions League matchs, twice against Maribor and another face to Sevilla.

We know that Liverpool are better with Mane on the field, and they have a lot of other deficiencies away from their terrific front three.
