The news comes three days after the club said midfielder Thiago Alcantara had tested positive for Covid-19.

“Sadio Mane has tested positive for Covid-19 and is currently self-isolating according to the necessary guidelines,” Liverpool said in a statement.

“The forward, who started and scored in Monday’s 3-1 victory over Arsenal, has displayed minor symptoms of the virus but feels in good health overall.

“However, like with Thiago Alcantara, Liverpool Football Club are – and will continue to – follow all protocols relating to Covid-19 and Mane will self-isolate for the required period of time,” they said.

On Monday, the Premier League announced 10 people had tested positive for coronavirus in the latest round of testing – the highest number of positive tests since the season began.
