Former Chelsea’s manager Ray Wilkins says the absence of Sadio Mane and Joel Matip could wreck Liverpool’s title bid.

The Reds will struggle to triumph for the Premier League title without the duo players, according to the former Jordan national football manager.

Klopp signed Mane in a £34m deal from EPL rivals Southampton last summer transfer window before Matip completed a free transfer to Anfield from Bundesliga outfit Schalke 04.

The 18-time English champions played out a 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford in the Premier League last weekend.

The Senegalese has bagged nine goals and notched up four assists in his 18-league appearance before heading off on international duty with Senegal at the Africa Cup of Nationals.

Also, Matip on the other hand is currently unavailable for selection due to confusion over his availability following his AFCON snub.

Liverpool are in third place in the table and seven points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea.

Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ on Monday afternoon, Wilkins poured cold water on talk of Liverpool winning the Premier League title.

“In terms of the Premier League title, not for me. There’s something missing with Liverpool,” Wilkins said.

“Mane has gone away and they miss Mane. He’s not going to come back for six weeks. That loss is going to be massive. Matip can’t play for Liverpool. When I looked at Klavan [on Sunday], he’s alright but that’s all he is – alright.

“Matip has been something special.”
