The Merseyside Derby was an entertaining spectacle on Wednesday as seven goals were scored, with Liverpool defeating Everton 5-2.

Mane was on fire and at the heart of most of the good things the home side did, scoring one and assisting another two.

He helped set the tone six minutes in by threading a through-pass for Divock Origi to slot home, before assisting Xherdan Shaqiri for the second with a similar pass.

His individual goal was arguably the finish of the night (apart from Origi's wonderful touch and lob for the third) as he whipped an excellent strike into the bottom left corner from the edge of the box with his left foot.

The former Southampton man could have and should have scored at least one more as he found himself through on goal another two times, including going around the goalkeeper on the second occasion, only to pass up the chances.

He had 10 touches inside the Everton box in total, and made six ball recoveries which sums up his work rate.
