Manchester United have been handed a major boost ahead of their game against Liverpool on Saturday. Jurgen Klopp’s key man, Sadio Mane, has been ruled out for six weeks with an injury per Sky Sports News.
The extremely tricky winger sustained a hamstring injury whilst playing for Senegal, meaning he’ll not partake in the heavyweight clash at Anfield.
Mane has, once again, been Liverpool’s best player recently, and they’ll find it much tougher to break down a resolute Red Devils defence without him.

It gives one less problem for Jose Mourinho to worry about, meaning the self-proclaimed Special One can focus on stopping the rest of Liverpool’s attacking talent – and I must admit, it feels good knowing that United aren’t the only side to get screwed by international football.
As we all know, Marouane Fellaini has been ruled out through an injury that he picked up when playing for Belgium, so it feels like the playing feel has been evened somewhat.
After a two-week hiatus, the excitement for the biggest game in English football is building nicely. If Manchester United can head to Anfield and take all three points, it’ll send out a real message to the rest of the Premier League.
