Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that he is expecting Sadio Mane to be fit for Liverpool FC’s crunch clash against AS Roma on Wednesday night.

Mane missed Liverpool FC’s goalless draw with Stoke City on Saturday lunchtime after having suffered an injury during the week.

However, Klopp confirmed after the game that the injury is not too serious, and he is expecting him to be fit for the trip to Italy next week.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Klopp said: “Sadio did not play but he will be fine for Wednesday.”

Liverpool FC head into the return leg of their Champions League semi-final clash looking to book their place in the final against either Bayern Munich or Real Madrid.

The Reds claimed a 5-2 win over the Italian side in the first leg at Anfield last week to take a significant step towards reaching the final.

Liverpool FC, who finished in fourth place last term, are currently in third place in the Premier League table as they bid to secure their spot in the top four for next season.
