A tweet was shared today which made us get that feeling in your stomach like when you go down a rollercoaster.
Liverpool literally cannot afford anymore serious injuries, especially not to a member of our spellbinding front-three.
According to the Mail, Sadio Mane limped out of the Spire Hospital in Liverpool last night.
He was by himself and without crutches, which makes us think the Senegalese was just getting a scan.

However, we’d now be mightily surprised if Mane started against Stoke on Saturday.
After all, Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah were taken off early against AS Roma on Tuesday and are likely to start as a result, but we think the third member of our jaw-dropping front-three will be allowed more time to recuperate for Wednesday.
There’s been no word from the club or the player, and Jurgen Klopp didn’t talk of an injury after the game, so we hope this is simply precautionary.
Mane was not at his best midweek, but still scored his 18th goal of the season.
Considering the fact he got 13 last term and was Liverpool’s Player of the Year, this is mighty impressive – and speaks volumes about Salah and Firmino – too.
