As per a statement on the official Liverpool website, Mane 'was substituted 89 minutes into Senegal's 2-0 World Cup qualifying win over the Cape Verde Islands on Saturday'.

The dreaded worldwide break has struck again, and Liverpool have been hit by a major injury blow.

That means Jurgen Klopp will be without the pacy winger for the Manchester United match this weekend, as well as nine more upcoming fixtures including the Town match at Anfield in two-and-a-half weeks' time.

Liverpool FC has been dealt a major blow as it has been announced that Sadio Mane is expected to spend another 6 weeks on the sidelines after picking up an injury.

Or last year's divisional round playoff loss when Rodgers set his team up for the game-winning field goal as time ran out. Prescott threw for three touchdowns and ran for another, an 11-yard option-play keeper that set up Rodgers's final drive.

The news is a big blow for the Reds, whose form has suffered in recent weeks, with Klopp's men having won only one of their last seven matches in all competitions.

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.

He was suspended for three games earlier this season after being sent off in the 5-0 defeat at Manchester City, while he also missed the end of last term with a knee injury.

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