Sadio Mane winning race to be fit for Liverpool’s clash with Napoli

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.

Liverpool given shock Sadio Mane fitness boost ahead of Bournemouth clash

Sadio Mane could be in contention to face Bournemouth despite Jurgen Klopp suggesting he wouldn’t feature (Getty Images)Jurgen Klopp has been handed a surprise injury boost ahead of Liverpool’s game against Bournemouth after Sadio Mane travelled with the squad to the south coast.

The 26-year-old had looked certain to miss the game having sat out the midweek win over Burnley after sustaining a foot injury against Everton in the Merseyside derby last weekend.

Speaking ahead of Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off at the Vitality, Klopp seemed to confirm that Mane would be absent for a second consecutive game.

‘Sadio is now out and tries to run first time so that doesn’t sound like he will be ready for tomorrow,’ he said.

‘Hopefully he can finish the programme today we did for him.’

However, Mane made the trip down to Bournemouth after being assessed by Liverpool’s medical staff on Friday evening and a decision will be made over his involvement on Saturday morning.

Should Mane be fit enough to start or even make the bench it would be great news for Liverpool as they look to chase down Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table.

Mane has scored six goals and registered one assist for the Reds in the Premier League having started all but two of their matches in the competition.

A win for Liverpool would pile the pressure on Manchester City who play Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.

Sadio Mane out of Liverpool’s trip to Bournemouth

Mane is dealing with a foot injury (Picture: Getty)Sadio Mane will miss Liverpool’s Premier League clash with Bournemouth on Saturday, Jurgen Klopp has confirmed.

The Liverpool forward is suffering from a foot injury, and was omitted from the matchday squad that played Burnley during the week.

The injury was picked up during the closing stages of the Merseyside derby last Sunday and Klopp confirmed Mane is likely to sit out another game.

But there is better news for Georginio Wijnaldum and Andrew Robertson who also missed the win at Turf Moor.

‘Sadio is now out and tries to run first time, so it doesn’t sound like he will be ready for tomorrow,’ Klopp said.

‘Hopefully he can finish the programme, which we did for him today.

Robertson will be restored to the starting line-up (Picture: Getty)‘Gini (Wijnaldum) is fine. Andy (Robertson) is fine, Robbo played most of the games in an intense position, so that is why we gave him eight hours off.’

Liverpool will want to keep the pressure on league leaders Manchester City, who play Chelsea in the late kick-off on Saturday.

The Reds can go top for a few a hours if they beat Bournemouth and will be hoping Chelsea do them a favour and take points off the defending champions.

Bournemouth are enjoying a fantastic season so far under Eddie Howe, with the Cherries sitting seventh, but the recent win against Huddersfield ended a run of four defeats.

Fabinho reminds Liverpool players he got thrashed by PSG before Champions League defeat

Fabinho reminded Naby Keita and Sadio Mane about Monaco’s 7-1 defeat to PSG (RMC Sport)Fabinho was keen to remind Liverpool’s players about his own negative experience against Paris Saint-Germain before their crucial Champions League clash on Wednesday evening.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are now in danger of missing out on a place in the Champions League knockout phase as PSG moved to second in Group C with a 2-1 victory at the Parc des Princes.

Fabinho was benched for the match against the French champions and was not used by Klopp as his side attempted to rescue a draw in the second half.

But before the game, the Brazil international strangely reminded Sadio Mane and Naby Keita of the fact that when he was last at the Parc des Princes with Monaco in April, he was on the receiving end of a hiding

Speaking to his Liverpool teammates as they made their way to the dressing room, Fabinho said: ‘The last time I came here, I lost 7-1.’

In a desperate attempt to find a positive after hearing that statement, Mane replied: ‘But after you became champions.’

But Fabinho also reminded Mane that Monaco were only the defending champions, while their crushing 7-1 defeat meant that PSG were crowned Ligue 1 title winners.

Probably not the best thing to mention before a crucial Champions League clash.

Key player passed fit for Liverpool’s Champions League clash with PSG

Sadio Mane has been passed fit to play against PSG (Getty Images)Jurgen Klopp will be able to call upon each member of Liverpool’s celebrated front three against PSG on Wednesday after Sadio Mane was passed fit to play.

The 26-year-old played the full 90 minutes in Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Watford on Saturday before coming down with an illness which made him a doubt for the Champions League clash.

Liverpool assessed Mane following a training session on Tuesday morning and he has been deemed fit enough to travel with the squad to Paris for arguably the biggest game of the club’s season.

Mane signed a new five-year deal with Liverpool last Thursday following a sensational start to the season which has seen him score seven goals in all competitions.

He celebrated his contract extension with an influential display against Watford providing an assist for Mohamed Salah’s opening goal and playing a part in Roberto Firmino’s third as his shot was saved by Ben Foster, leaving the Brazilian with a tap-in.

Sadio Mane has committed his long-term future to Liverpool (Getty Images)Klopp will be hoping all three of his attackers can have a similarly effective display in the Parc Des Princes as Liverpool’s hopes of progression from Group C hang in the balance.

With just two games to play, including on Wednesday night, all four teams in the group can still qualify with only two points separating Napoli in first place with Red Star Belgrade in fourth.

PSG have blown away their domestic rivals this season, winning all 14 of their Ligue 1 matches to open up a 15-point lead over Lyon at the top of the table, however they have struggled in the Champions League winning just one of their four matches.

Thomas Tuchel is expected to be able to recall his two best players for the game, though with Kylian Mbappe and Neymar likely to return after missing the weekend win over Toulouse through injury.

Liverpool won the corresponding fixture 3-2 at Anfield in September with Firmino coming off the bench to score a late winner.

The Reds defeated Watford over the weekend to remain on the coattails of defending champions Manchester City.

Speaking after the 3-0 win, Klopp said: ‘We stayed stubborn. They defended and counter-attacked and we had a few really good moments we didn’t score, which is not a big problem if we stay on track.

‘How we closed down the game was just brilliant, especially the third goal.

‘The first goal was brilliant football and the free-kick from Trent [Alexander-Arnold] was a dream. It was a good game against a good side.’
