The 20-year-old joined Manchester City in January, leaving Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras for a whopping £28m.

Mane will be eligible for the club's return to the Champions League at home to Sevilla on Wednesday, in which the Reds boss confirmed Loris Karius will start in goal.

Phil Thompson believes Saturday's mauling at Manchester City exposed Liverpool's failure to strengthen defensively, but feels the current crop should still have done better.

"They are one of best teams in Europe". After such an impressive result there is no reason to make changes because it's such an important thing for a defence being settled, especially against such an offensive team when you've got to trust your team-mates. "We will see in the next weeks but I think it will be soon when he comes back and fights to play".

Feyenoord may have beaten Heracles 4-2 in the Dutch Eredivisie over the weekend, but their opponents came dangerously close to scoring more goals - a fact that no doubt will play on coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst's mind.

Chelsea and Manchester United fly the flag for England on Tuesday as the pair embark on what will hopefully be the winding road to Kiev next spring and a Champions League final.

However, the three Match of the Day stars, three of the finest English strikers of the last 30 years, all concur that they would have made the exact same challenge.

"Few times in your career do you get to play in front of an atmosphere like this". I thought we gave in and gave up and no Liverpool team should be like that. He's a big inspiration. The duo was also absent on Saturday's clash with Liverpool due to injuries.

PSG warmed up last Friday night with a 5-1 drubbing of Metz without getting out of second gear and you get the impression they are just starting to warm up.
