Manchester City's Ederson trains in protective headgear after Sadio Mane clash

Manchester City's Ederson trains in protective headgear after Sadio Mane clash”

Mane was dismissed for a dangerously high challenge on City goalkeeper Ederson - a sending off that led to a three-game domestic ban - and Klopp called on the Senegal worldwide to continue chasing lost causes, starting against one of La Liga's toughest sides on Wednesday.

Mane was shown a straight red card, for raising his foot in a challenge with the City goalkeeper Ederson, in the first half of Liverpool's 5-0 defeat on Saturday.

The Senegalese winger has since been given a three-match ban for his illegal action, and Klopp has told Mane not to adapt his style of play.

Liverpool's appeal to have the immediate three-game ban reduced was rejected by a Football Association disciplinary hearing on Tuesday.

"I'm not sure if I'm disappointed, I didn't expect anything different".

But captain Vincent Kompany missed training on Tuesday and is expected to miss the Champions League opener with Feyenoord with a calf strain that ruled him out of the game against Liverpool.

"We never appealed the red card, only the length of the suspension".

But with Claudio Bravo - himself a £17m signing last summer - riding the bench, Guardiola may not wish to take the risk, despite Ederson's impressive form at the start of the season.

"It's not an English thing". There were a lot of situations which were similar. I don't want to bring that in doubt, but how can you ask if he's number one? And obviously Ederson was not lucky.

Mane is available to face Sevilla but will miss this weekend's home game against Burnley, along with the dual EFL Cup and Premier League trips to Leicester City.

"There was not even a percentage of Sadio which wanted to put the goalkeeper in danger. He wanted to get the ball", Klopp added.

Mane will not play another Premier League game until October, but that may work in Coutinho's favour as he looks to win a place back into the hearts of Liverpool supporters.
