Jurgen Klopp responded to a question over Sadio Mane’s fitness, explaining that the injury ruling the forward out of the tie was not particularly serious.
It’ll be a source of massive relief to Liverpool fans who’ve seen a spate of injuries against Tottenham wipe out the club’s remaining senior centre-back, Joel Matip, and midfielder-turned-centre-half Fabinho.
Based off of the German’s reply, we can probably expect the Senegalese to be back in action for us as soon as next Wednesday, when the Reds host Brighton at Anfield.

🗣 "It's not serious, but serious enough to not be involved today."
