Liverpool to check on Sadio Mane injury following win over Wolves

But even so, McAteer believes there's a chance the German will opt to leave Anfield in the summer of 2021.

Liverpool's German manager Jurgen Klopp hailed another moment of magic from Roberto Firmino as the Brazilian's late victor opened up a 16-point lead at the top of the Premier League with a 2-1 victory at Wolves on Thursday.

"We lost Sadio Mane tonight, that's what I think about, that's the pressure I have".

The Senegalese star suffered a muscle tweak after half an hour.

Sunday's trip to mid-tabled League One side Shrewsbury in the FA Cup fourth round is also likely to provide a test.

The Reds are still unbeaten in the league, and have only dropped two points in the current campaign.

Frank Lampard's double would spark the title celebrations at Bolton with three games to spare, Chelsea breaking the then Premier League record points total and finishing 12 points clear of defending champions and runners-up Arsenal.

And speaking on beIN Sports, McAteer questioned whether the day-to-day life of the job will lead to Klopp deciding to call it a day and take a break in a year's time. But it was a big one and was the toughest you could get for today for different reasons.

"I was surprised and I wasn't sure about him, but now he has shown that he's a very, very [good player]". I just think there's burnout. That term has been put against his name so many times now that it really doesn't count.

"I've been on tour with them before, he can't move". "Jurgen spent four years building his team and they're doing well now, so it's not going to be a quick fix, not eight or 10 players in the transfer window". "We have players who came back from injury, so it makes sense to play them because they are pretty good and we want to go through".

Liverpool once again found their victor late in a match, this time when Firmino was played into the area by Henderson after some fancy footwork from Mohamed Salah and the Brazilian smashed his shot past Patricio to keep their winning streak alive.
