Liverpool have ruled out Sadio Mane for six weeks because of a hamstring injury and it is likely that he will miss out some big matches because of his injury.
Sadio Mane’s injury comes in a very bad timing as Liverpool enter a very difficult period in the season.

Mane has been a crucial player for the club after giving 25 Premier League goals since his Red debut.
Although the injury comes at the start of the season, it still looks like that he will miss out important matches that may determine the fate of the club.
Liverpool will play against Manchester United on Saturday and this will be a very important game since United are now on top together with Manchester City.
Having failed to win three of their last four matches, Liverpool will need to score goals against United.
Liverpool and United always have a good rivalry against each other but Jose Mourinho’s men have been a standout this season as they score 19 goals and conceding just two from their seven matches.
Mane’s presence during their Saturday match could improve Liverpool’s chances.
