It was reported by Express Sport‘s Paul Joyce that Sadio Mane has been taken to hospital after picking up a shoulder injury in training.

Mane enjoyed an outstanding debut against Arsenal, capped off with a superb solo goal.

A week earlier, former Southampton star Mane found the net in a 4-0 friendly win over Barcelona.

It is not just goals that Mane brings to Klopp’s team. The Senegal international also injects pace into the Merseysiders’ three-man attacking midfield unit and is Liverpool’s most direct threat.

Coutinho, is also fast but the Brazilian magician goes about his business in a much more flamboyant manner. This is not a bad thing by any stretch of the imagination, but Liverpool will surely miss the balance that the rapid straight-line counter-attacking threat of Mane gives them if he is out for a long time.
