Liverpool went on to beat Sheffield United 1-0, but it could have been a lot more awkward for Sadio Mane had Gini Wijnaldum’s shot been handled by Dean Henderson.
Toward the latter stages of the first half, Virgil van Dijk plays though a lovely ball over the to and the Senegalese international is in on goal.
It was an awkward ball to deal with, but Sadio had time, and his shot ended up going high and wide of the target. The home supporters sarcastically cheered Mane’s attempt on goal, but it was Liverpool who had the last laugh.
You’d expect better from one of the best finishers in the Premier League, but it doesn’t matter all that much now. We go again!
