Sadio Mane produces lovely assist for Divock Origi against Burton Albion

When news broke that Sadio Mane had injured his shoulder in training last week, it was understandable that there were plenty of worried Liverpool fans.

The winger has made a terrific start to his Liverpool career since making a £34 million move from Southampton this summer.

But there were suddenly fears that the Senegal international could be ruled out for numerous weeks with reports of his shoulder being dislocated.

It was clear that the Reds missed him during their disappointing 2-0 defeat to Burnley last weekend but welcomed him back for their EFL cup clash against Burton Albion.

And Mane immediately picked up where he left off during his opening Premier League match against Arsenal.

The 24-year-old showed off his incredible ability against Championship side Burton Albion and played a large part in the opening goal.

After James Milner’s cross was overhit - believe it or not - Mane brought the ball down expertly, beat his defender and squared it perfectly for Divock Origi.

The Belgian striker finished easily with a cheeky flick to get Jurgen Klopp’s side off to a perfect start.

Take a look at Mane’s brilliant assist below and the reaction from Liverpool fans.

Origi’s goal eased any nerves of a potential upset and Roberto Firmino soon doubled the lead after a great cross from Nathaniel Clyne. Check out that goal below:
