Liverpool got over the line against Aston Villa this afternoon in another episode of the ‘mentality monsters’.
Just when it looked like the unbeaten run was coming to an end, Andy Robertson powered home and header at the back post (watch it by clicking here) and then Sadio Mane nodded home a Trent Alexander-Arnold corner kick right at the end of the match to win the three points for the Reds.
This is how many ecstatic Reds supporters took to Twitter to celebrate the victory.
Three minutes plus stoppage-time to go and Sadio Mané just refuses to entertain the idea of Liverpool getting beaten. Creates one, scores the other. He's simply unbelievable.

With Manchester City also having won this afternoon in their game against Southampton, it was vital for the Reds to restore their six-point lead at the top of the table, especially with that mammoth game next Sunday at Anfield to come.
With Genk to come in the Champions League midweek before that, the focus cannot switch to City just yet, but everyone involved with the club will surely already have one eye on that, publicly or otherwise.
