Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has tested positive for coronavirus and is self-isolating.
The news comes three days after the club said midfielder Thiago Alcantara had also tested positive for Covid-19.
Liverpool say the Senegal winger had “displayed minor symptoms of the virus but feels in good health overall”.
Mane, 28, played for the Reds in a 3-1 win over Arsenal on Monday but was not in the squad for the EFL Cup defeat on penalties to the Gunners on Thursday.
A statement on Liverpool’s website added: “Like with Thiago Alcantara, Liverpool are – and will continue to – following all protocols relating to Covid-19 and Mane will self-isolate for the required period of time.”
