Video: Mane finishes brilliantly to put Liverpool in front against West Ham, despite Milner being offside in the build-up

Sadio Mane fired Liverpool into the lead against West Ham United at the London Stadium in the Premier League on Monday night.

The Reds are aiming to restore their five-point lead at the top of the table over reigning champions Manchester City with a win against the Hammers, but it has been a difficult evening for them so far.

They got off to a great start, however, as Mane finished brilliantly to put Jurgen Klopp’s men in front after 22 minutes after James Milner fired in a low cross from the right-hand side.

The Senegalese star expertly controlled the ball before dispatching his 11th Premier League goal of the season, despite the fact Milner was clearly offside in the build-up.

West Ham have equalised since through Michail Antonio, in a highly-charged affair which could have plenty more twists and turns yet.
