Mane Scores Brace To Extend Liverpool’s Perfect EPL Start

Mane Scores Brace Liverpool

Sadio Mane scored a brace as Liverpool came back from a goal down to beat Newcastle 3-1 on Saturday and continue its perfect start to the Premier League season with a fifth straight win.

Newcastle scored a surprise opening goal when Jetro Willems picked up a pass from Christian Atsu, cut inside past right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold and blasted a shot into the top corner.

Liverpool responded well, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain firing a shot narrowly wide before Mane kick-started Liverpool’s comeback.

Mane received the ball from Andy Robertson in the 28th and curled it into the top-right corner from a tight angle.

The Senegal winger needed some luck for his second goal 12 minutes later.

As he dribbled toward the goal, the ball deflected off advancing goalkeeper Martin Dubravka and bounced in front of goal to leave Mane a simple finish.

Mohamed Salah made it 3-1 after he charged through the Newcastle defence in the 72nd.
