WATCH: Sadio Mane with first-half Liverpool brace; Spurs reeling
Sadio Mane and Liverpool are running Tottenham Hotspur ragged at Anfield on Saturday, as the Senegalese strike force has a first half brace.
Most of the early pressure came courtesy of Liverpool, and it was Mane who provided a deserved finish when Philippe Coutinho played an inviting through ball and the Senegalese striker beat Ben Davies to the end of it before scoring around a splayed Hugo Lloris.
Mane made it 2-0 in easier fashion this time, as Adam Lallana stung the palms of Lloris and the goalkeeper stopped Roberto Firmino’s rebound attempt before Mane belted the third chance into the top of the goal.
Mane nearly had a hat trick after Davies made amends for poor defending by clearing the attacker’s shot off the line. Lloris was then called upon to snare a Coutinho effort, as Spurs looked rudderless.
