Sadio Mane had one of the best chances of the first half, in Liverpool’s Carabao Cup final victory over Chelsea.
Following up on a Naby Keita shot that was parried by Edouard Mendy, our No.10 found himself chasing a loose ball inside the box and attempting to put it into the back of the net.
Being closed down by Cesar Azpilicueta and the ‘keeper meant that it was a tough chance for our Senegalese winger and his shot on goal was saved by his compatriot, before going out for a corner.
Acknowledging the magnitude of the chance, Luis Diaz ensured that he ran straight to his teammate and consoled him with a big hug and a kind word in the ear.
It was a lovely gesture by the Colombian and it certainly would have helped the 29-year-old realise that he had to put the moment behind him, to concentrate on the rest of the game.
It’s great to see our new No.23 is already such a big part of the team and he has fitted in so well since his recent arrival from Porto.
