Mount glides after a long pass down the left. He drops a shoulder to get past Fabinho, takes a couple of touches as he runs along the front of the box, and having made room spears an unstoppable shot into the bottom right! Simple but brilliant, and Liverpool are behind at Anfield once more.
James fizzes a hot backpass towards Mendy, who juggles calmly and clears under pressure from Mane. He offers his team-mate a wry smile once the job is done.
Robertson curls towards Mane from a deep position on the left. The ball nearly sends his team-mate clear, but Azpilicueta has read the danger brilliantly and steers it back to Mendy just in time.
Mount rasps a shot high over the bar from the edge of the box. It’d have been interesting had that gone in, because Mane felt he was illegally hauled back by Azpilicueta earlier in the move.
Rudiger’s useless ball infield from the left is snaffled by Mane, who hares forward with Firmino and Salah in support. He wedges a pass wide right for Salah, who plays an instant first-time ball down the channel. But Mane hasn’t continued his run into the box. Liverpool’s front three are all out of whack at the moment, like that’s breaking news.
