Liverpool were once again in winning form against Wolves on Thursday in the Premier League.
It was not the easiest of games for the Reds – it took until the 84th minute of the match for them to score the winner. However, win they did – the final score was 2-1 – and it now means that their lead at the top of the table is now back to 16 points.
The triumph did come at a price though – Sadio Mane was forced off injured in the first half to be replaced by Takumi Minamino. After the match, Paul Joyce revealed that Jurgen Klopp had said that it was a hamstring issue that had forced him off the field of play.
Klopp on Sadio Mane injury: “We don’t know exactly, he felt his hamstring. We have to wait.”

As you can imagine, that did not go down too well with the Liverpool supporters.

With 15 goals and 11 assists in 31 games in all competitions so far this campaign, Mane has been in terrific form for Klopp’s men. Liverpool supporters will be hoping that this issue is nothing serious.
One fan, meanwhile, offered to give the Senegal international their own hamstrings so that he can get back on to the pitch as soon as possible.
Sadio, take mine. I have a desk job so I don’t need it.

Whilst that is impossible, you can’t blame the Reds supporter for trying anything to get the former Southampton man back to full fitness.
Still, the way Liverpool have dominated this campaign so far, you wouldn’t put it past them being just as good without him.
