Jurgen Klopp says he will look into Sadio Mane's eyes before deciding whether to play him
Liverpool laid on a private jet to bring Mane back to Merseyside after his country Senegal crashed out of the Africa Cup of Nations.
Mane missed a penalty as Senegal lost their quarter-final tie against Cameroon on penalties on Saturday.
But Jurgen Klopp has not yet decided whether to start the 24-year-old in Liverpool’s crunch clash with Liverpool tomorrow night (8pm).
"I don’t know exactly,” Klopp said.
"He’s now on his way, we thought it would be possible yesterday.
"We had a plane there yesterday, but he wasn’t allowed. He had to wait.
"Now it’s all good, he will be here tonight at some point.
"I spoke to him, it’s all good so far.
"He will be in tomorrow morning, [but] I have no idea.
When asked whether he would risk Mane against Chelsea, Klopp delivered a cracking reply.
"I have to look in his eyes, then make a decision,” the German said.
