All told, the Senegal worldwide is expected to miss at least nine matches in the league and Europe after being taken off late in the second half during Saturday's 2-0 win over Cape Verde.

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

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

Liverpool won just once in seven matches in all competitions while Mane was at the African Nations Cup in January.

They coped better that time, with five wins, two draws and a defeat.




The 25-year-old Mane has already missed three matches this term after being shown a straight red card for catching Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson with a high boot in last month's fixture.

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.

Since his debut in August 2016 Liverpool average 2.2 Premier League goals with Mane in the team, compared to 1.6 goals in his absence.

Jurgen Klopp's side have some genuinely crucial matches coming up in the next few weeks, both in the Champions League and Premier League.
