The Liverpool winger was substituted in the 89th minute of Senegal's 2-0 victory over Cape Verde at the weekend, and his club have now confirmed he picked up a hamstring problem.

Liverpool have confirmed that Sadio Mane is set for a significant spell on the sidelines after sustaining injury on worldwide duty.

Liverpool striker Sadio Mane is facing up to six weeks out of action after picking up a hamstring injury on worldwide duty with Senegal, the Premier League club said on Tuesday.

Zuckerberg Uses VR To Tour Flooded Puerto Rico Areas
Zuckerberg said he plans to " announce some stuff I am not going to announce now" at the upcoming VR conference. The fourth annual Oculus Connect conference will begin on October 11, 2017.

The former Southampton player scored 13 Premier League goals last season despite missing the whole of January due to the African Nations Cup and the final six weeks of the campaign with a knee injury.

Liverpool are already seven points behind United in the Premier League and can't afford to drop points against Jose Mourinho's in-form United.

Strikers Daniel Sturridge and Dominic Solanke will also vie for a starting berth in Mane's absence, while Klopp may instead choose to deploy Philippe Coutinho higher up the pitch alongside Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah in attack against United at Anfield.
