Liverpool rocked by new Mane injury blow

Oct 10, 2017 - 3:55 PM Liverpool have been hit by a new injury blow with star striker Sadio Mane ruled out for six weeks with a hamstring injury.

Liverpool, who have won just once in the Premier League since August, face bitter rivals Manchester United on Saturday at Anfield.

Mane was taken off with a minute remaining in Senegal's 2-0 World Cup qualifying win over Cape Verde Islands on Saturday.

Liverpool said the injury "could keep him out of action for up to six weeks" starting with Saturday's league game against arch-rivals Manchester United at Anfield.

Mane has scored three goals in five Premier League appearances this season and has just returned from a three-match suspension.

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 international break.
