In the 25th minute of the Super Sunday encounter between Leeds and Liverpool, Sadio Mane squandered a wonderful opportunity to get on the scoresheet for the Reds.
Diogo Jota battled to collect the ball on the right-wing after a throw-in, with the Portuguese ace charging towards the byline before he fired a low cross to the far post for Mane.
Mane was the victim of overrunning the ball as he ended up firing the ball well over the bar from just a couple of yards out in an uncharacteristic miss from the Senegalese superstar.
“Oh he’s missed it!” ?
