Mohamed Salah uncertain for Liverpool's Champions League clash against Sevilla

Mohamed Salah uncertain for Liverpool's Champions League clash against Sevilla

Effectively, Mane has been banned for more than three and a half matches following an incident in which he showed no malicious intent and that seems very harsh to me.

COUTINHO'S RETURN? Philippe Coutinho could make a timely return to Liverpool's matchday squad for their midweek Champions League clash with Sevilla, Jurgen Klopp has said. Klopp says that he is set for Champions League duty this week.

"We have to look forward to the next game, forget that result and play like before".

" Phil is a fantastic player, and hopefully we can use him as quickly as possible."

Alongside Sevilla, Liverpool have also been grouped with Spartak Moscow and Maribor for their Champions League campaign.

It was all going so well for Liverpool without Coutinho.

Writing in his column for the Daily Mail, Ince feels that Coutinho needs to emulate the striker's performances this season in order to demonstrate to the world that he is a top class player.

He took Mohamed Salah off at half-time in the Man City game and may have had one eye on this Sevilla game when he made that decision and Liverpool have a chance to prove they can bounce back from a big disappointment in this game.

Up first are their opponents from the Europa League final in 2016, with Klopp plotting victory over Eduardo Berizzo's Sevilla.

"I'm very happy to have this start with the team and to help the team win points and win games", he told Liverpoolfc.com.

Liverpool's Sadio Mane had his three-match suspension for a red card received for a high challenge on Manchester City's Ederson upheld on Tuesday, after the FA rejected his claim of excessive punishment.
