Sadio Mane is expected to be fit to start against Napoli (Picture: Getty)Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed Sadio Mane is in line to face Napoli on Tuesday after recovering well from a foot injury.
The Senegal international missed wins against Burnley and Bournemouth after picking up an injury in a 1-0 win against Everton last weekend.
Liverpool need to win 1-0 or by two clear goals to progress to the knockout stages of the Champions League but face an in-form Napoli at Anfield.
However, the Reds’ chances have been given a significant boost with the news that Mane is likely to be able to start.
Mane is likely to start (Picture: Getty)‘Sadio can deal with the pain obviously – it looked like that in Bournemouth, so that’s cool. It’s good enough that we can consider him at least.
‘We have two sessions still to come – we’ll train tomorrow morning as well. That’s very important.
‘We have the meeting to do. In the squad there is nothing really serious after the game, that’s good.’

Liverpool are understandably desperate to reach the knockout stages and they’ll be equally determined not to drop into the Europa League.
The Reds knocked Manchester City off top spot in the Premier League this weekend but a Europa League campaign could hinder their chances of a first league title in 28 years.
