Sadio Mane has compared Naby Keita’s cool reaction to his own spectacular long-range effort against Crystal Palace to that of Manchester United legend Eric Cantona’s famous goal celebration against Sunderland.

Finding himself unmarked on the edge of the 18-yard-box, the Guinean positioned himself to receive Eagles shotstopper Vicente Guaita’s punched clearance from a corner and let fly with a first-time volley to kill the game.

The 26-year-old appeared almost surprised by his own effort, though quickly broke into a smile after being crowded by his Liverpool teammates.
