Sadio Mane is expected to make an immediate return to the Liverpool squad against Chelsea on Tuesday.

Liverpool’s owners, Fenway Sports Group, have arranged for the swift return of their Senegal striker, whose country was eliminated from the Africa Cup of Nations by Cameroon on Saturday.

Mane missed the critical penalty in the shoot-out in the quarter-final, which Senegal lost 5-4, and was distraught afterwards.

He will take a private jet arranged by Liverpool’s owners and the indications are he will join the squad and at least be on the bench.
