Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana lauded his teammate Sadio Mane after the winger’s late strike helped the Reds to three huge points in the Premier League.
Jurgen Klopp’s team were trailing until the 87th minute when Andy Robertson equalised, before Mane struck in the fourth minute of injury time.
The Senegal international continues to produce huge moments for Liverpool and is arguably the team’s most influential player right now.
After the game, Lallana said (Goal): “What a player!”
“He just comes up with the big, big moments all the time. The same with Robbo too.”
It was Mane’s 10th of the season in all competitions, and the star is certainly pulling his weight right now with Liverpool yet to really hit top gear despite their fantastic start.
TBR’s view – Mane form crucial for Liverpool
With Mo Salah having yet to get into his stride in the league, Mane’s form is absolutely vital to Liverpool at the moment.
The Reds are shipping goals more regularly than last season and have just two clean sheets from their 11 games so far.
It has meant more pressure for Klopp’s team to deal with, but thankfully for Liverpool fans Mane appears to flourish when that pressure is on.
