Loads of Liverpool fans have been reacting to a possible setback ahead of the Burnley clash, and they think it could be good news for derby hero Divock Origi.
Liverpool could be set for a crucial setback ahead of the clash with Burnley, as Mane is expected to miss the visit to Turf Moor.
While Jurgen Klopp has not ruled the winger out, his press conference comments on Mane’s injury do not sound positive.
Paul Pogba and Man Utd seem to be after Harry Redknapp’s ‘King of the Jungle’ crown! Check out the video below…
“Sadio has an awful cut in his foot. He needed to be stitched. He is walking around in flip-flops, but we don’t play in flip-flops,” the boss said.
Needless to say, the fact that Mane can’t even wear normal shoes does not bode well for playing a very physical Burnley side on Wednesday night.
Presuming Klopp does rest the Senegalese star with the busy festive schedule on its way, fans are calling for Origi to take his place.
The 23-year-old was out in the cold until his derby winner on Sunday, and fans are hoping his confidence can propel him back to his early form under Klopp.
You can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below, where fans want Klopp to stun Burnley by starting the previously unwanted Belgian right from the off…

Origi to START?!!

It does not matter, we’ve got Origi.

With Mane doubtful and Bobby gashed, I would be seriously tempted to start with a two of Origi and Salah or even Sturridge. If we had that game at home I would even be more sure of resting the usual trio for a game no matter how mad it sounds when we are in a title challenge.

Milner Henderson and Keita in tomorrow would be an excellent shout. Completely fresh and more than good enough for Burnley. Would also like Origi or Sturridge over Firmino

With some niggling injuries and players needing a rest we could mix things up against Burnley, possibly a 4222?

I’d start origi on Wednesday.
Burnley haven’t been preparing for that situation at all.

Love to see old school Origi and Sturridge front 2 vs Burnley.
