Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk playing through broken ribs - Ronald Koeman

Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah line up prior to Liverpool's UEFA Champions League group match against Napoli

Meanwhile, Virgil van Dijk should be fine to face the Terriers after he returned home from global duty early to rest his ongoing rib issue.

Mane's injury is set to rule him out of Liverpool's game against Huddersfield.

This boost will be a relief for Klopp after Sadio Mane became the latest Liverpool player struck down by injury on global duty. "We did an x-ray today to see what is the state of play. He has a fracture at the top of the first metacarpal on his left hand, which was due to it being squashed during the last match".

Van Dijk and Salah will be assessed throughout the week.

It adds to Jurgen Klopp's injury woes as last year's golden boot victor Mohammed Salah returned to Anfield with a muscle injury following Egypt's 4-1 victory over Swaziland.

Mane has been in fine form for Liverpool this season, with four goals to his name, and is the Anfield club's joint top scorer in all competitions alongside Daniel Sturridge.

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.

The former Southampton player joins Mohamed Salah [muscle injury] and Virgil van Dijk [rib issue] on the Reds' injury list ahead of Saturday's Premier League meeting against Huddersfield Town. Klopp has expressed concerns, both publicly and privately, about playing on synthetic fields.
