CAIRO – 18 December 2017: The absence of African duo Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane of the Merseyside derby against Everton in the FA Cup on January 5 was confirmed.

The Daily Mirror confirmed the duo's presence at the CAF Awards ceremony on January 4 to confirm their absence from the match a day later.
