Sadio Mane: Liverpool to fly Senegal striker back from Africa Cup of Nations
Liverpool have arranged for a private jet to fly striker Sadio Mane back from the Africa Cup of Nations to give him a chance of facing Premier League leaders Chelsea at Anfield on Tuesday.
Mane is available again after Senegal lost 5-4 on penalties to Cameroon in the quarter-finals on Saturday.
The 24-year-old former Southampton player missed the crucial penalty.
Liverpool have won only one game since he left for international duty after a 2-2 draw at Sunderland on 2 January.
The Reds will check on Mane's fitness before making any decision on his involvement in Tuesday's game against Chelsea, who are 10 points ahead of them.
