Sadio Mane opened the scoring for the Reds in their FA Cup third round tie with Aston Villa, after an excellently-taken cross by Curtis Jones.
The Senegalese appeared to hurt himself leaping for the ball but carried on at the time of writing.
Jurgen Klopp’s men faced a Villa side comprised of the club’s youth, following the announcement of a training ground outbreak of COVID-19.
Whilst it’s not exactly the first-XI we expected to face, it’s important that the Reds take the fixture seriously.
We’d love to see Mo Salah join his fellow forward on the scoresheet this evening and build up a taste for goals, particularly in consideration of the upcoming clash with Manchester United.
