Liverpool maintained their 100% record in a 2:1 victory against Tottenham at Wembley stadium. It was notably the finest performance from Jurgen Klopp’s perspective.

Apart from the entertainment derived by the team, a lot of YNWA fans were raining abuses on Senegalese forward Saido Mane who on several occasions, where he needed to have assisted Mo Salah instead he held the ball for too long and made wrong choices afterwards.

On a particular occasion when Mané had the opportunity to pass to either Naby Keita or Salah, the Senegalese opted for Keita who missed the gifted chance when Salah was unarguably in the best position to score. Klopp was even seen demonstrating to Mané the best option on the pitch.

Albeit, in one of the other occasions, Salah was also trying to maraud his way into the 18-yard box before taking a nonchalant shot where he would have passed comfortably to Daniel Sturridge.

Liverpool manager who is also good at backing his players had something to say after claiming that Mane’s action was not “greed” but “it’s normal”

“These boys are such a threat to each team. These runs they do, gives us the space to get in between. That is how we scored the second goal.”

It might interest everyone to know that both players are African Best contenders and perhaps both are vying for the best opportunity to reach to the topmost level of their career, but a lot of concentration was on Mané as the fans on Twitter were not so nice to the player who is already in goal scoring form ahead of the Egyptian.
