Sadio Mane is facing up to six weeks out of action with a hamstring injury, Liverpool have announced.
The news is a major blow to Jurgen Klopp ahead of the Premier League clash with Manchester United at Anfield on Saturday.
Mane has scored three goals in four Premier League appearances for the Reds this term and has become arguably their most important player.
The 25-year-old, who joined Liverpool from Southampton in June 2016 for £34million, suffered the injury on international duty with Senegal.
A Liverpool statement read: “The winger was substituted 89 minutes into Senegal’s 2-0 World Cup qualifying win over the Cape Verde Islands on Saturday.
“And it has now been confirmed that he picked up an injury during that fixture that could keep him out of action for up to six weeks.”
