Sadio Mane may not have been the huge name Liverpool fans were hoping to see arrive at Anfield this summer, but there's absolutely no reason why he won't become a leading player for the club over the coming years. 

Mane, 24, has enjoyed a prominent couple of years at Southampton in the Premier League and should bring added pace, assists and goals to the Liverpool ranks. 

Indeed, Mane is currently starring for Liverpool against Championship outfit Huddersfield at the John Smith's Stadium this evening.

And it's fair to say that he has well and truly been involved throughout proceedings. In fact, he almost scored his first goal for the club after a comical turn of events. 

As you can see in the video below, Mane almost punished Huddersfield after a mix-up at the back.

Ultimately, though, the wide-man's goal was ruled out after the referee decided that he had fouled the opposition goalkeeper. 

Liverpool lead 

Despite Mane's goal being ruled out, Jurgen Klopp's side currently lead by one goal to nil thanks to a well-taken strike from new signing Marko Grujic.
