24-year-old Liverpool forward Sadio Mane is set to miss Chelsea’s clash with Liverpool at Anfield later this month.
Mane is currently away at the Africa Cup of Nations with Senegal.
Senegal beat Zimbabwe 2-0 last night to seal a place in the quarter-final of the Africa Cup of Nations.
Mane and his Senegalese teammates will play their quarter-final match on January 28 and this means Mane would be unavailable to play against Chelsea three days later.
Even though we would love to beat a Liverpool team without any player absent, news of a key Liverpool player missing our clash with Liverpool is always music to the ear.
