The forward scored in his first three Premier League matches this season before his red card at Manchester City, while the subsequent three-match ban slowed his progress.

But his absence, which will see him miss matches against top-four rivals United, Tottenham and Chelsea, will still be keenly felt at Anfield this weekend.

Salah, the club's leading scorer with six goals, told liverpoolfc.com: "I texted him when he was at the national [team] and then when he came back. He told me then he was injured, so that's bad news for everyone.

"But that's football and anything can happen. Now we have to focus on the game and keep moving forward."

In Mane's absence, Philippe Coutinho could be restored to the wide-left position he previously occupied before dropping into midfield to accommodate the two fast wingers.

Coutinho and Brazilian compatriot Roberto Firmino returned from international duty in South America injury-free and the pair were both able to train on Thursday.

Fellow internationals Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Marko Grujic, Ragnar Klavan, Simon Mignolet, Dominic Solanke and Georginio Wijnaldum also rejoined the main group.

Defender Dejan Lovren is understood to be fine after returning on Wednesday, following an Achilles problem, having played 90 minutes in Croatia's 2-0 World Cup qualifying win over Ukraine.
