Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has praised Sadio Mane for his performance against Manchester City.

Klopp’s Liverpool got the better of Pep Guardiola’s City 3-2 away from home at the Etihad Stadium in the semi-finals of the FA Cup on Saturday.

Senegal international forward Mane scored two goals.

Klopp told Liverpool’s official website about Mane: “He played an incredible game, an absolutely incredible game. He was the first player to start the press, so it was intense for him as well. 

“The first goal he scored, I love it. But I don’t like too much that the goalie will get some criticism for it, but it’s not about that because Zack can do what he wants in that situation, like Ederson did a week ago. 

“These kind of things happen, with Ali and all these things. If you want to play football, that can happen. But the acceleration of Sadio, the desire to get there, it was really great.

“So this goal was great and the other one was obviously proper football until the final pass with the little chip and then the volley – it was a great goal. Ibou scored now the third goal in his third start in a row, if I’m 100 per cent right, which is very helpful as well. 

“Set-pieces are very important, especially [when] teams are a little bit more focused on Virgil, so it’s really important that the second target player can use that maybe. He did it now three times, it’s really cool.”

Liverpool are now rated at 4/9 favourites on Betfair to win the FA Cup this season.
