Liverpool fans slam Sadio Mane after forward misfires against Sheffield United

Premiership Picks

Even the best can have an off day. Sadio Mane has arguably eclipsed Mohamed Salah this season in the contest of being Liverpool’s key performer, scoring six times to the Egyptian’s four.

The former Southampton man’s early exploits are remarkable considering he arrived late to Anfield this summer following his involvement in the Africa Cup of Nations with Senegal.

Having found the back of the net three times in his last three Premier League games, Mane would undoubtedly have been confident of getting on the score-sheet against Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon.

And the 27-year-old’s chances of doing so were significantly boosted by the number of clear-cut opportunities that presented themselves to him. However, it appeared he didn’t seem to have his shooting boots on, with none of his four attempts on goal making their way past Dean Henderson.

After seeing Mane surprisingly fluff his lines, Liverpool fans took to Twitter to voice their concerns over the forward.

Many fans of the Merseyside club criticised his wayward attempts, and it left one Reds supporter claiming it was equal to “Sunday league” finishing.
