The Reds look to be cruising into the next round of the competition.

And Liverpool fans feel that Mane should be taken out of their starting line-up by Jurgen Klopp this evening to protect him.

Mane has indeed played a lot of football recently, as he has started eight of their nine Premier League matches.

The £34 million Senegal international (BBC Sport) has also featured in every single one of the Reds’ European matches to date, which has given him a high work load.

With Liverpool suffering with so many injuries to key players at the moment, taking Mane out of their team may actually be a smart move for Klopp tonight.

Liverpool could still use the likes of Takumi Minamino, Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota as an attacking trio, which would still give them enough fire power to feel confident of victory.
