Liverpool’s players have, as usual, been off around the world for international fixtures, for both friendlies and competitive matches.
The likes of Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah and Naby Keita all missed games or were taken off injured, leaving boss Klopp with potential selection headaches.
With a return to Premier League action seeing the Reds head to Huddersfield at the weekend, getting straight back up to speed with three points is imperative.
And with Salah a fitness concern, the last thing Klopp wanted is another attacker going down injured—but a suspected broken thumb means the Senegal international needed surgery.
Liverpool have confirmed that the No. 10 underwent a successful procedure once back on Merseyside today, saying Mane “will be monitored over the next couple of days” before any decision is taken over his weekend involvement.=========================================================
