Liverpool have been boosted by the news that Sadio Mane’s shoulder injury is understood to be not as serious as first feared.

Mane was crocked in training after colliding with a team-mate at Melwood and there were concerns the forward had dislocated his shoulder.

However, scans have revealed the Senegal international has only suffered a muscular injury and was later seen driving away from the Spire hospital in Liverpool, albeit with his left arm in a sling.

The 24-year-old, who featured in our top ten debuts on the opening day of the Premier League season after starring in the 4-3 win over Arsenal, is a doubt for the trip to Burnley on Saturday, but the Reds are optimistic he will be back soon afterwards.

Should Mane miss the trip to Turf Moor, then Jurgen Klopp is likely to hand a start to either Divock Origi or Daniel Sturridge.
