We think everyone needs to calm down right now in regards to Liverpool’s injury situation…
Every time somebody bends down to tie their laces, there’s a collective outpour of anxiety – which in fairness – is understandable considering what happened to Virgil van Dijk on Saturday.
So when Sadio Mane was subbed after an hour and seen with an ice-pack on his leg, many on Twitter lost the plot!
Thankfully though, Jurgen Klopp confirmed that’s it only a dead-leg from the Everton clash and it’s not anything that’ll keep him out of any Liverpool games.
“Sadio has since a few days a dead leg and deals with that in that area,” he told post-match reporters. “That’s the only thing why it’s still painful but it’s not a problem. When he doesn’t play, he puts ice on it.”
Thank goodness for that! Mane was a livewire and his brilliant play led to our rather fortunate winner last night v Ajax.
You can be pretty sure he’ll be in the starting XI for the Sheffield United game at the weekend – although Jurgen Klopp might choose to rotate against FC Midtjylland midweek – who just lost 4-0 to Atalanta and are by far the weakest side in our Champions League Group.
