Liverpool's Mane facing six weeks out with hamstring injury

Liverpool's Mane facing six weeks out with hamstring injury”

Mané suffered the injury during Senegal's 2-0 World Cup qualifying win over Cape Verde on Saturday, but the extent of the problem became clear when he reported back to Liverpool for further tests.

The global break has brought misery for Liverpool, with Sadio Mane suffering a hamstring strain that will keep him out of action for six weeks.

Former Tottenham Hotspur and France forward David Ginola believes that Sadio Mane's absence for the clash with Manchester United on Saturday could be decisive.

Sportsmail looks at three different ways that Klopp's Liverpool could line up without their key player.

Liverpool are at their best on the counter, where Mane's speed across the pitch, as well as his speed of thought, are devastating to opponents.

"Liverpool especially we talk a lot about (Philippe) Coutinho, Sadio Mane is another one".

He was suspended for three games earlier this season after being sent off in the 5-0 defeat at Manchester City, while he also missed the end of last term with a knee injury.

Who will cover for Mane?

Coutinho would perhaps provide the most attacking versatility, but taking him away from the middle of the park would be an issue for the overall balance and perhaps isolate him. Needless to say, though, the quickest way to make up that deficit would be by beating the latter, but without Mane that appears less likely - in turn putting more pressure on the remaining games he is expected to miss against Huddersfield, West Ham and Southampton.

Let's just hope that the break has given Klopp time to fix some of the defensive frailties.
