Sadio Mane continued his superb run of form following his return from the African Cup of Nations with a crucial effort in the first leg of Liverpool’s Champions League semi-final clash with Villarreal.
After relentless pressure from the Reds continued into the second-half of action, Mo Salah slipped through his forward teammate to poke one home and double the hosts’ lead.
2-0 up, it’s a scoreline Jurgen Klopp would not doubt prefer to see bolstered before the full-time whistle, though it’s a solid lead as things stand.
