According to the results of our recent poll, the majority of Liverpool fans want Sadio Mane to keep his place in the starting XI for the visit of Manchester United on Sunday, despite his rusty performance vs Napoli.
The Reds scraped into the last 16 of the Champions League on Tuesday night with a 1-0 win over their Italian visitors, but it could have been so much more comfortable if they had taken their chances.
Mane was particularly guilty of this. The 26-year-old missed two sitters when he only had Colombian keeper David Ospina to beat.
Clearly though Liverpool fans appreciate that he was getting into these positions and recognise that the Senegalese winger was returning from missing the game against Burnley and only being able to come off the bench in the 4-0 win over Bournemouth.
In fact, 60 per cent of those who answered ur poll wanted him to retain his position when United come to Anfield, although we can’t help but feel this would have been closer to 100 per cent if he was at his best.
