Jurgen Klopp appears to have ruled Sadio Mane out of Liverpool’s clash with Brighton on Wednesday night.

 

The Senegalese international missed Liverpool’s 3-1 victory over West Ham on Sunday due to a minor injury he sustained in last week’s win over Tottenham.

 

Klopp played down the severity of Mane’s injury, but admitted that Liverpool’s congested match roster made it difficult for the forward to recover in time for the trip to West Ham.

 

But speaking on Tuesday, Klopp suggested that Mane will not be rushed back for the game against Brighton.

 

When asked if Liverpool’s injury situation had remained the same before Wednesday’s game, Klopp replied: “Yes, it is as it is.”

Mane will now be looking to be fit for Liverpool’s clash with City at Anfield on Sunday.

 

When asked if Liverpool’s injury situation had remained the same before Wednesday’s game, Klopp replied: “Yes, it is as it is.”

Klopp also admitted that Virgil van Dijk is unlikely to return from injury before the end of the season.

 

“Right now, I don’t know where these things come from, no one really, no doctor, no one told me that there are chances that Virgil will play again this season,” said the Liverpool manager.

 

“I don’t mean to say that’s absolutely impossible, but it’s not likely. Not likely. We don’t really have to discuss these things.

 

“If we had space, we would put them all, even when all the doctors tell us that there is no possibility. We wear them because we believe in miracles from time to time.”
