Sadio Mane could be missing from Liverpool’s line-up on Sunday against Fulham at Craven Cottage having missed training on Friday, according to The Mirror.
Fresh from scoring a brace in the Allianz Arena against Bayern Munich in the Champions League, it would be a huge blow for the Senegalese to miss out just when he has hit brilliant form.
He has 16 Premier League goals this season – the most of any player yet to take a penalty – and has been on fire over the last few weeks.
There is no suggestion Mane has been completely ruled out of the game, but for him to miss training is not a good sign. Hopefully, he will recover in time and can feature in the starting XI.
There’s no doubt the Reds can beat Fulham without Mane, but it would be a fair bit easier with him in the side, and it would also be good to be able to keep his hot run of form going.
