Sadio Mane sidelined for Huddersfield Town's trip to Liverpool FC

Sadio Mane sidelined for Huddersfield Town's trip to Liverpool FC

Mane picked up the problem on worldwide duty with Senegal and was withdrawn late on in Saturday's 2-0 World Cup qualifying triumph over Cape Verde.

Liverpool winger Sadio Mane has joined Philippe Coutinho on the shortlist for the 2017 Ballon d'Or, as the second Reds representative in 20 players.

Premier League outfit Liverpool have today been rocked with bad news, after tests revealed that Sadio Mane is set for around six weeks on the sidelines with a hamstring injury.

Liverpool are already seven points behind United in the Premier League and can't afford to drop points against Jose Mourinho's in-form United.

They also lost each leg of their League Cup semi-final to Southampton 1-0 and, after a goalless draw and 1-0 win against Argyle, exited the FA Cup 2-1 against Wolves.

Mané, who scored 13 Premier League goals last season despite missing the whole of January due to the African Nations Cup and the final six weeks of the campaign with a knee injury, has three in four league matches so far.

Having worked hard to get back to fitness this term, Mane was sent off at Manchester City on 9 September, resulting in a three-match ban.

But the striker is set to miss the game at Anfield in addition to Liverpool's league clash against Tottenham and both Champions League group fixtures against Maribor.
