Liverpool winger Sadio Mane has the perfect chance toget back amongst the goals in the Premier League, with Cardiff City next up at Anfield.
Mane was on target against Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League on Wednesday, after missing a penalty earlier on in the game.
Mane poked home the game’s final goal to hand the Reds a 4-0 win and put them top of Group C.
The Senegalese forward has gone off the boil in the league though since the 2-1 away win at Leicester City nearly two months ago.
He started on fire with four goals in his first four games, and he’ll be keen to rediscover his goalscoring mojo against Cardiff.
Cardiff unfamiliar with the term ‘clean sheet’
Luckily for Mane, Neil Warnock’s team have had all kinds of trouble trying to keep a clean sheet this season.
In nine games they have shipped 19 goals – the second worst defensive record in the division – and have kept only two clean sheets, none of which have come in the last six games.
The Reds will be the overwhelming favourites against Cardiff, especially at Anfield, where they are simply so dangerous.
The midweek battering of Red Star suggested that Liverpool have moved up a gear now, having started the season without the same efficiency as last season.
Mane got a taste for goals again against the Serbians, and he has a golden chance here to add to his Premier League tally which has momentarily gotten stuck.
