Sadio Mane walks into the World XI on the left-wing, reckons Jamie Carragher.
Neymar, Eden Hazard and often, Cristiano Ronaldo, play in that position, but none are as good as Liverpool’s no.10 right now.
Mane’s pass for Divock Origi’s opener was scintillating, but then the Senegalese went and copied the trick with another beautiful ball for Xherdan Shaqiri to make it 2-0…
Liverpool conceded a sloppy goal, but Origi made it 3-1 before the 40th minute, when Carra decided it relevant to send the following tweet:
Mane plays left wing in a world 11 #LIVEVE

He’s absolutely spot on, too.
It says a lot that Jurgen Klopp was happy to rest Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino for the Merseyside Derby, but had to field Mane on the left…
Mane then made it Liverpool 4-1 Everton with a jaw-dropping goal of his own – which he started in our half before slotting home with his left.
