Videos

While Diogo Jota stole the headlines during Liverpool‘s 5-0 win over Atalanta, Sadio Mane was still able to showcase his incredible skills. 

Jota replaced Roberto Firmino in the starting Xl and continued his remarkable start to the season with his first hat-trick for the Reds.

Mane* and Mohamed Salah also got on the scoresheet in Bergamo and Jurgen Klopp’s side now have nine points out of nine in the Champions League group stage.

Their incredible front three looked full of confidence straight from kick-off and Mane was clearly enjoying himself.

The Senegal international received the ball in his own half and then picked out an onrushing Georginio Wijnaldum with a brilliant back-heel pass.
