Premier League (36), Villa Park
May 9, 2022
Goals: Luiz 3; Matip 6, Mane 65
The Reds fell behind to an early Douglas Luiz goal, with the defending from Kostas Tsimikas leaving lots to be desired.
Fortunately, Joel Matip was on-hand to equalise almost immediately, but the visitors were a long way from their best in the first half and Fabinho went off injured, with fingers now crossed its not serious.
Mane then headed Liverpool in front midway through the second half after good work from Luis Diaz and Jurgen Klopps men held on.
Heres how Liverpool fans reacted to Manes showing on social media.
Liverpool really need to be sorting Sadio Mans contract situation out. As deserving as any player of a new deal after the year hes had. Always delivers in the big moments.
