Returning Senegalese international, Sadio Mane, ended Liverpool’s poor form in the premiership with a double at home to Tottenham Hotspurs. The Anfield favorite halted a run of ten games without a win all competitions to put a check on their ailing title hopes.
The Africa stars scored twice in 2 minutes to inflict a first defeat on the White Hart lane side for the first time in eleven outings. The speedy forward recorded his 10th and 11th strikes to put Liverpool back on the top four and a point behind their second placed opponents.
The 2-0 handed Jurgen Klopp’s men their first win in 2017 after a turbulent run if matches at the turn of the year. Mane has since scored 11 goals in his 24 outings for the 2005 European Champions.
