Sadio Mane left Melwood and went to hospital on Wednesday, following a training ground collision which sent Liverpool fans into meltdown.
The Senegalese was stupendous against Arsenal on his competitive debut last weekend, but there was serious fear that he might have done proper damage and would miss a run of matches.
According to Jurgen Klopp though, the £34m former Southampton flyer has a chance of playing at the weekend and is not badly hurt.
“It was a situation, a challenge between two players up in the air, coming down and then Sadio fell on his shoulder but it’s not that serious,” the boss told reporters for the official website.
“It won’t take a long time but I don’t know yet whether he will be available for this weekend.
“In the first moment it was not too good, but meanwhile I think it is all OK.”
It’s obviously a massive relief that Mane will be back soon, even if Saturday’s Burnley tie may come too soon.
The 24-year-old injects sheer, unadulterated pace into our forward line – and he completely changes the dynamic of our attack.
If he missed the Burnley tie, Klopp might switch Gini Wijnaldum or Adam Lallana to the flank, or even use Lazar Markovic – but none possess the ability to get on the shoulder of the last man while also dropping deep enough to run at the defenders.
Still, it’ll be interesting to see how we cope at Turf Moor without Mane, who’s seemingly become integral to the side after just one game.
