Liverpool could be without their influential winger Sadio Mane for the remainder of the season after manager Jurgen Klopp revealed that the player's knee is still swollen following his injury on Saturday.

“We have to wait until the knee is not that swollen any more," he said ahead of Liverpool's game against Bournemouth on Wednesday night. "The only thing I can say for sure is that he will not be available for tomorrow. 

"All the rest we have to see. It is not very positive when it is like this. I cannot say at this exact time so we have to wait.”

When asked about the possibility that Mane won't play again this season, Klopp added: “Unfortunately that is possible but why should I say it now when I don’t know? The knee is swollen and we have to wait for the final assessment. Even then – especially then – the more difficult the situation the better it is to handle it."
