Sadio Mane took advantage of another finely-taken cross from Trent Alexander-Arnold to ensure Liverpool took first blood in their contest with West Ham United.
The Senegalese international’s effort had invited a VAR check from officials at Stockley Park, though it was deemed just onside in a tight call.
The former Southampton ace’s opener for the Reds takes his total tally to 14 goals in 33 games (across all competitions).
