Africa Cup of Nations

The delayed 2021 Africa Cup of Nations is just around the corner and it’s bad news for some of the top English clubs. 

A number of the managers will have to do without some of their top players and this might affect their plans and overall performance.

Liverpool will be most hit as their dynamic duo of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane will be away, as well as Naby Keita.

Chelsea will also lose Edouard Mendy, who has been phenomenal ever since he signed from Rennes.

Hakim Ziyech, who seems to be rediscovering his form will also be away with the Morocco national team, even though Thomas Tuchel will feel he has enough cover in that area.
