Goal! It’s 2-0! Liverpool strings together a dazzling arrangement of goes amidst the pitch as they at last burst into life. Mane dashes into the case and hooks onto an excellent ball from Firmino, setting him up to beat Dubravka with a side-footed wrap up.
Liverpool had started the second half in slightly sloppy fashion, but they were at their fluid best there. Firmino linked up nicely with Mane and put the ball on a plate for the Senegal international.
