Sadio Mane pointed to Liverpool’s rapid start as the catalyst for a morale-boosting Anfield victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday night.
The No.19 was in scintillating form throughout the Premier League clash and particularly during a first-half blitz which brought two goals for him and the team.
Mane’s opener was created by a sublime Georginio Wijnaldum through ball and finished with aplomb, before his second came courtesy of incessant pressing by the Reds and another assured hit inside the box.
Jürgen Klopp’s side were full value for their result – and the goalscorer explained afterwards that the players were determined to show a reaction following recent poor form.
