Sadio Mane tests positive for COVID-19

1 min read

Liverpool have confirmed that Sadio Mane has tested positive for coronavirus and is now self-isolating.

The Reds’ attacker joins Thiago Alcantara by self-isolating, with both players to miss Sunday’s match at Aston Villa.

Liverpool are without Mane, Thiago, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Kostas Tsimikas and Joel Matip for Sunday’s match, but captain Jordan Henderson could return.

New signing Diogo Jota could get his first league start for the club in Mane’s absence. Takumi Minamino would be Klopp’s other option on the left of the front three.

Mane was due to join up with Senegal for the international break next week, but presumably will no longer do so and remain on Merseyside.
