Sadio Mane has once again been a pivotal member of Liverpool’s squad this term.
In 22 Premier League appearances, Mane has scored 11 and assisted eight for the Merseyside powerhouse.
Unfortunately for Liverpool, Mane was withdrawn 33 minutes into their clash with Wolves at the back end of January.
Mane has since missed Liverpool’s last two league outings vs West Ham and Southampton.

Mane returns to Liverpool training
And as we come to the business end of the campaign, Liverpool fans will no doubt be keen to get Mane back in action as soon as possible.
The Reds have a huge clash coming up next week.
Jurgen Klopp’s side will travel to the Wanda Metropolitano on Tuesday the 18th of February for the first of two Champions League round of 16 clashes vs Atletico Madrid.
And having Mane back for such a big tie would likely prove a massive boost for Liverpool.
Well, on Monday the 10th of February, Sky Sports News have provided a positive update on the Mane injury front.
According to Sky, the Senegalese international has returned to Liverpool training, after recovering from a hamstring injury.
SSN also stated that James Milner, who has been dealing with a hamstring issue, took part in the same session.
Norwich vs Liverpool
Before their Champions League clash with Atletico, Liverpool have a Premier League matchup with Norwich City on Saturday the 15th of February.
Liverpool head into the tie with a commanding 22-point lead atop the table.
Norwich, on the other hand, are sat dead bottom of the PL with a dismal 18 points amassed from 25 ties.
So, even if Mane is back fit for Saturday, it is hard to envision Jurgen Klopp risking the returning winger so close to such a big CL tie.
