Roberto Firmino’s late winner gave the Reds a 2-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux on Thursday night, to extend their unbeaten run . The win made it 40 games without tasting any defeat.
Despite getting a win, the league leaders were dealt with a huge blow in the game as one of their star players Sadio Mane limped off in the first half after just 33 minutes of play.
Mane’s suffered a hamstring injury and was substituted by winter signing Takumi Minamino in the 33rd minute.
The African footballer of the year has been tipped by many football lovers to be Liverpool’s best player this season and it will come as a huge blow for Jurgen Klopp who will be missing arguably his best player this season, with their search for first Premier League trophy in 30 years entering the conclusive stages.
Mane is expected to miss Liverpool’s FA Cup fourth-round tie against Shrewsbury on Sunday, and will also be a doubt for their outstanding league game against West Ham United next week Wednesday.
