Sadio Mane put in a man of the match performance for Liverpool in their win over Chelsea

Sadio Mane put in a man of the match performance for Liverpool in their win over Chelsea on Sunday, forcing a red card and getting on the scoresheet at Stamford Bridge.

The Senegal international forced Andreas Christensen into committing a professional foul in the first half, with the Norwegian being shown a straight red.

He then took the game to Frank Lampard’s team following the break, opening the scoring with a powerful header after getting the better of Reece James in the box.

Mane’s second was the result of his tenacity, as he closed down Chelsea keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, blocked his clearance and fired home.

Chelsea had the chance to reduce the deficit when new signing Timo Werner won a penalty after being fouled by Thiago Alcantara.

But Alisson compounded Chelsea’s misery with a great save against Jorginho.
