Liverpool managed to secure passage back into the Champions League last season after finishing fourth in the Premier League, condemning Arsenal to the Europa League.

Well, they have almost qualified, except they've had to face German side Hoffenheim over two legs in order to secure their passage into Europe's most prestigious competition.

In Germany, Liverpool ran out 2-1 winners with strikes from Trent Alexander-Arnold and James Milner giving the Reds two vital away goals.

Sadio Mane was one of the stars of the show yet again for Jurgen Klopp's side as the Senegalese International establishes himself as the Merseyside club's most important player - even more than Philippe Coutinho.

Liverpool had to see the job over the line and at Anfield, they tore their opposition to shreds in the opening 20 minutes.

German midfielder Emre Can may have scored twice but it was Mane again who was the master architect in two beautifully worked goals.

On both occasions, the former Southampton man produced a sumptuous back heel which wowed Liverpool fans.


Can may have seen his shot deflected in, but the piece of skills from his teammate to set him up was out of this world.

Moments later - after Mohamed Salah had made it 2-0 - Mane was at it again in the build up, with an almost identical moment of magic.


Brilliant, laying it on a plate for Alberto Moreno to whip the ball into the German midfielder to tap home.

Mane is fast becoming the Premier League's finest attacker, a deadly combination of speed, skill and deadly finishing.

Barcelona were desperate to land Coutinho but after watching Liverpool this season, Mane is the man the Blaugrana will want.


Cue a £150m bid on Thursday morning.
