Klopp confirmed on Friday that Mane is likely to require surgery after falling awkwardly in the recent Merseyside derby and will be unavailable for Liverpool's remaining seven league games.

After the latest bout of injury blows, Liverpool fans believe it is imperative that Klopp sticks with the Belgian striker as they look to make gains towards earning top-four place without their two key players. I thought he was lucky in this situation that not more happened, but it will be pretty much impossible that he will play again this season.

Mane is to undergo surgery on knee cartilage damage sustained in last week's Merseyside derby, adding his name to those of captain Jordan Henderson, fellow midfielders Adam Lallana and Ovie Ejaria and striker Danny Ings who are now available for Jurgen Klopp's third-placed side.

Liverpool, who drew 2-2 with Bournemouth in midweek, are third in the table on 60 points, six points above fifth-placed Arsenal and sixth-placed Manchester United, having played two games more than both.

"But then he'll have a long break and be ready for next season, so that's the only good news".

Klopp added: "Adam is much better but is, of course, no option for the weekend because he is not in training".

The Fed's decision to boost its key policy rate by a quarter-point in March left it in a range of 0.75 percent to 1 percent. Stocks had rallied earlier in the day on a massive beat for private payrolls numbers.

"Phil is still ill", said German boss Klopp.

Klopp also insisted that he is not now bothered about whether qualifying for the Champions League would be a failure. He feels much better but we will have to see if we can bring him tomorrow. We just have to get as many points as we can.

Jürgen Klopp faced up to the prospect of Philippe Coutinho joining a growing list of absentees by telling his depleted squad to "forget they have to play like Liverpool". The Reds are now in the third position in the Premier League point table.

"It's not about thinking about the players you can't (select), it's about thinking of the players you can", the manager said.

"You could say that arguably this set of fixtures is the most hard we've had this season and that continues obviously with the game against Liverpool tomorrow".
