In the 11th minute of today’s mammoth Premier League encounter against Manchester City, Liverpool were awarded a golden opportunity to take the lead.
Sadio Mane tricked Kyle Walker with a wonderful bit of skill, leaving the right-back to recklessly hack down the winger. The referee duly pointed to the spot.
Mohamed Salah stepped up and tucked the ball into the bottom corner with a powerful spot-kick after his trademark long run-up. The Egyptian is a brilliant penalty taker.
LIVERPOOL LEAD! ?
Walker gets caught the wrong side of Mane and Salah confidently dispatches the penalty. What a start from Klopp's men!
