Liverpool and Chelsea will play today in Russia after both teams won the Champions league and Europa league respectively to square up against each other
Liverpool has a boost for today’s game as forward Sadio Mane is fit after returning to training last Monday when given a 16-day break following Senegal’s run to the Africa Cup of Nations final.
“I think I am ready. Tiredness I think is here [pointing to his head],” he said at a news conference on the eve of Wednesday’s match.
“For sure I have been playing for a long time. I don’t think I’ve had a holiday of more than 20 days in seven years.
“I’m used to it. For sure, I’m ready. I’m here. Let’s do it!”
