Sadio Mane could return to the roster for Liverpool on Tuesday, bringing them a huge boost as they host league leaders Chelsea.
Mane has been absent while competing in the Africa Cup of Nations, but Liverpool has struggled without his presence. Without Mane, Liverpool have won just once in seven matches. Mane’s late return means that he missed training on Monday, but still has a chance to appear Tuesday as a substitute.
Chelsea are flying high right now, 30 points higher in the table than they were at this point last season. Chelsea have won 15 of their last 16 league games, and are also unbeaten in their last four trips to Anfield. Chelsea will be at full strength for this matchup after benching key starters for a weekend FA Cup win over Brentford
Liverpool have lost three straight matches at Anfield after starting the season there undefeated. Recent struggles aside, they did beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge when the teams first met back in September.
