Liverpool winger Mohammed Salah has admitted that the injury suffered by Sadio Mane is “bad news” but ensures that the Liverpool team is ready to “fight” hard for a positive result against rivals Manchester United on Saturday, according to a report on the Liverpool Echo.

Salah has started the season well and has managed to find the back of the net four times in the Premier League so far.

Mane has been ruled out for up to six weeks with a hamstring injury which he picked up during international duty with Senegal.

The 25-year-old Egyptian winger is now ready to lead the charge against the Red Devils and is high on confidence after firing his country to the 2018 World Cup over the international break.

“It’s a big game on Saturday, everyone in the world will watch the game. It’s a big game for us too because we have to keep fighting and improve our results. I hope we can get the win,” said Salah.

“We always fight in each game, but this game is a big game and can make a difference for us. We have to improve our place in the table. We have to fight and try to win the game,” he added.

Salah has been a bright spark in a shaky start to the season for the Merseyside club and has already won two Standard Chartered Player of the Month awards.
