Mane breaks Premier League record as Liverpool hot streak continues

Mane breaks Premier League record as Liverpool hot streak continues

Former Liverpool captain Jamie Carragher believes that Mohamed Salah's recent bad form has been caused by his selfishness during games.

Instead, Jurgen Klopp's side hold a two-point lead over Manchester City - who have a game in hand - following a 2-1 win over the Cottagers on Sunday and a 4-2 victory at home to the Clarets a week earlier.

Nevertheless, we move on to the player ratings - as compiled from reports from the Independent, the Express, the Mirror and the Echo.

But Milner's fourth league goal of the season won it for Klopp's men with nine minutes to go as they got out of west London back on top.

Add to that three goals in the Champions League and you have perhaps the most important and best player in the Premier League given Sterling's age and potential for improvement still to come. Second half we were a bit clearer, had better chances, so that's...

Mane darted towards a backpedalling Timothy Fosu-Mensah and slotted a pass to Roberto Firmino, continuing his run to convert the Brazil forward's cutback from the byline.

However, as a torrential rain shower swept over the banks of the Thames to make playing conditions hazardous, Liverpool's slender lead proved a risky one.

"I am not giving excuses".

"Yeah, Ryan was trying to be clever I think when he said that", Van Dijk told BeIN Sports.

However, the league leaders showed why they are in the running to end a 29-year title drought to get a vital three points with the help of some erratic goalkeeping from Rico.

A couple of football experts have predicted who will emerge victor of the 2018-19 Premier League Player of the Year.

Another howler, this time by Rico, decided the contest as the keeper spilled a tame Mohamed Salah shot and then hauled down Mane who pounced on the rebound, leaving Milner to stroke home the victor from the spot.
