Sadio Mane marks Liverpool debut with great goal

Published Add your comment

Arsenal vs Liverpool is always an entertaining affair and the opening weekend clash of the season hasn't let us down.

Seven brilliant goals in within the first 75 minutes suggest it will be no exaggeration to claim it could well prove to be one of the most exciting games of the entire campaign.

The opening half looked cagey but Arsenal would have felt hard done by after Philippe Coutinho's late free-kick on the stroke of half-time.

In contrast, the second half turned into a complete goal fest as strikes from Adam Lallana, Coutinho's second and Sadio Mane raced Liverpool into a formidable lead only for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Calum Chambers to add to Theo Walcott's earlier opener in a fierce fightback.

Although each goal was impressive in its own way, Mane's effort really caught the eye.

Making his Premier League debut for Liverpool, the Senegalese winger drove past Chambers and Nacho Monreal on the right-hand side before cutting in on his stronger left foot to guide his shot past the helpless Petr Cech.

Not a bad way to win over your new set of supporters after a big money move.

Klopp was evidently delighted with his new signing's first goal for the club and joined in on the resulting celebrations, letting Mane jump on his back.

Liverpool fans will be equally pleased their star has made an immediate impact and even more relieved it proved to be the winning goal to hand the Reds a key victory at the Emirates.
