Liverpool suffer fresh injury blow ahead of final day clash with Brighton

Liverpool could be without Sadio Mane for their final day clash with Brighton.

The Senegalese forward picked up a knock during the defeat to Chelsea and has barely trained this week.

He again failed to take a full part in Friday’s session despite being involved in the warm-up and Jurgen Klopp must decide whether to play Mane at Anfield.

The Reds need a point to qualify for the Champions League, while this season’s final with Real Madrid is now just two weeks away.

“We will see. It is not the same injury. A fresh problem,” Klopp said, with a concern that will scare Liverpool fans the world over.


Klopp also refused to rule Emre Can out of the Champions League final, despite his back problems.

“I cannot, and I don’t want to, close the door on him.

"Of course it would have been better if he had come back on Monday and said, ‘All fine, let’s start.’

“That would have been three weeks (to the final), but we will see.”
