Liverpool dealt hammer blow as key man ruled out for six weeks

Manchester United legend Gary Neville

Liverpool have confirmed that Sadio Mane is set for a significant spell on the sidelines after sustaining injury on global duty.

The Senegalese star picked up a hamstring injury while on global duty and is set to be out for up to six weeks.

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. The six-week time-frame rules him out of seven Liverpool matches, with a Champions League clash at Sevilla and a Premier League match with Chelsea following swiftly after.

He scored 13 Premier League goals last season despite missing the whole of January due to the Africa Cup of Nations.

The model-mom captioned the image with an inside joke: "What happens at lip sync battle does not always stay at lip sync battle ". She did it simultaneously while her Grammy-winning singer-husband was having one of his own throwback sprees.

They also lost each leg of their League Cup semi-final to Southampton 1-0 and, after a goalless draw and 1-0 win against Argyle, exited the FA Cup 2-1 against Wolves.

Mane already has three in four league matches for Jurgen Klopp's so far in the current season.

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.

Mane was included in the 30-man shortlist for the 2017 Ballon D'or which was released on Monday.
