The winger was brought off with just a minute left in Senegal's World Cup qualifying victory against Cape Verde on Saturday.

Liverpool's hopes of gaining ground in the Premier League title race have suffered a major blow after forward Sadio Mane was ruled out for up to six weeks with a hamstring injury.

Liverpool must again do without Sadio Mane for several weeks due to a hamstring injury and we take a look at how they fare without him.

The timing is also all wrong for the manager, with high-flying Manchester United visiting on Saturday morning and Klopp needing a positive result to kick-start Liverpool's season.

The Senegal worldwide scored 13 goals and laid on a further right in just 29 appearances for the Reds in 2015/16, with his absence at the end of the season hampering his side's fluency.

Liverpool average 2.2 Premier League goals with Mane in the team, compared to 1.6 goals in his absence, while he played for his country at the Nations Cup last January.

The speedy forward picked up a red card during the 5-0 loss to Manchester City last month but was back in the starting line-up for the 1-1 draw at Newcastle before the global break.

He will miss crucial fixtures including the next two league clashes against Manchester United and Tottenham.
