Liverpool forward Sadio Mane could be out of action for up to six weeks after picking up a hamstring injury on international duty, the club said on Tuesday.

A statement on the club's website said he was substituted just before the end of Senegal's 2-0 World Cup qualifying win over the Cape Verde Islands on Saturday.

"It has now been confirmed that he picked up an injury during that fixture that could keep him out of action for up to six weeks," the statement said.

Mane has scored three goals in four Premier League appearances this season.
