Sadio Mane, the winger who was supposed to be out until the end of this month, is likely to feature tomorrow against West Ham!
Jurgen Klopp today told his press-conference, streamed on YouTube, that the winger will be able to play “20-25 minutes” – making an appearance on the bench likely.
He’s been absent since the last international break, but has only missed five games – three of which we won comfortably without him anyway.
We’d love to see him get a quick run-out with the game won at the London Stadium, before he flies out to Senegal for their World Cup Qualification matches with South Africa.
We’ve no doubt he’ll be used in both games, unless Senegal qualify in the first, by Aliou Cisse as he’s their best player by an enormous distance – so Klopp will be watching from behind his sofa.
If Mane picks up another injury while with Senegal who overuse him we’ll despair.
