Liverpool's Sadio Mane breaks hand becomes latest injury concern for Jurgen Klopp

Sources have told ESPN FC that Liverpool believe it is too early to determine whether any of the injured players are doubts for Saturday's trip to Huddersfield Town.

Mane is the third Liverpool player to give Jurgen Klopp an injury concern during this global break, with Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk also withdrawing from national team duty early.

Mane suffered a hand injury, and was taken to hospital as a precaution.

This boost will be a relief for Klopp after Sadio Mane became the latest Liverpool player struck down by injury on worldwide duty.

Liverpool might be anxious about Sadio Mane's fitness after the forward broke his left thumb on Monday.

By rule, the Steelers and Bell must agree in writing as to the amount of Bell's compensation before he signs the tender. However, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter , the Steelers have yet to hear anything from their Pro Bowl running back.

The forward returned to Liverpool in the last few days and was assessed by the medical team and Salah is now set to return to training.

The Reds suffered another scare after Mohamed Salah was sent back to Merseyside for treatment after picking up a leg injury while playing for Egypt last week but the attacker is expected to be fit to face Huddersfield.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are now occupying third position on the Premier League standings with 20 points after eight games played so far this season.

The newspaper claims that Mane picked up the injury during Senegal's African Cup of Nations qualifying victory over Sudan on Saturday - which they won 3-0 - and team doctor Abdourahmane Fedior says the attacker will miss the return fixture today.

Van Dijk too is in line to play at the weekend, despite continuing to struggle with a rib injury on global duty. Klopp has expressed concerns, both publicly and privately, about playing on synthetic fields.
