Liverpool handed Sadio Mane injury boost

With Liverpool having lost Harvey Elliott to a serious ankle injury back in September, followed by Roberto Firmino picking up a hamstring injury earlier this month, it’s safe to say Jurgen Klopp has not had much luck when it comes to having all of his attacking options available to him this season.

With the latest international break underway, it seemed as though the Reds could have been struck with another injury issue to one of their key attacking players.

However, there has been a development that will surely be a big relief to everyone at the Merseyside club.

What’s the news?

After being forced off the pitch during Senegal’s recent World Cup qualifying clash with Togo after 28 minutes with a suspected injury, Senegal coach Aliou Cisse revealed that Mane’s injury is not a serious one and that he was taken off as a precaution, which should be great news for Klopp.

First up in this 2020/21 season quiz, how many PL goals did Mo Salah score?

Given how the 29-year-old, who is currently valued at £76.5m according to Transfermarkt, has managed to score eight goals in 15 games across all competitions so far this season, this shows just how important he is to the team and why it will be a big relief that his injury, on this occasion, was not a serious one.

In addition to his goals, the winger has also managed to rack up an average of 3.4 shots at goal per game in the Premier League and an overall season rating of 7.24/10, making him Liverpool’s fourth-highest rated player according to WhoScored, highlighting how much of a vital figure he is for the club.

Moving forward, with Senegal set to play Congo on Sunday in their next World Cup qualifying match, everyone at Liverpool will undoubtedly be hoping that Mane will be able to get through this game unscathed and then return back to Merseyside ready to take on Arsenal when the Premier League returns later this month.

Is Sadio Mane underrated?

Yes

No

No

If Mane is fit to play against Mikel Arteta’s side, then he will surely give the Reds a better chance of securing a win against the north London club, who are on a good run of form at the moment, remaining unbeaten in their eight previous league games, having also conceded just one goal in their last three matches.
