Starting the season with a bang wasn’t unexpected after the stellar campaign Liverpool enjoyed last time. Reaching the Champions League final and finishing in the top four certainly was an incredible ride and the star of the show was Mohamed Salah.

The Egyptian broke all sorts of records in his first season at Anfield but the main man this time around has been Sadio Mane.

The Senegalese star, who joined Liverpool for £34m, has four goals to his name in as many games and has looked fitter, faster and sharper than any of his previous campaigns for the Reds.

Salah and Roberto Firmino have looked sluggish in the attack but Mane has held the fort for the Reds, leading them to four wins from four.

Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah

Of course, being Liverpool, everything cannot fall into place at the club. Mane is the only one of our front three who is yet to sign a new deal but Jurgen Klopp isn’t rushing to extend the winger’s stay at the club.

The German was asked about Mane’s future and was quoted (h/t Bleacher Report) as saying:

“It’s not that his contract ends tomorrow. They are all in a good age group. That’s all positive, right?”

The report did say that Mane had three years left on his deal and the Senegal star has gotten better with each season under his belt.

The 26-year-old scored 13 goals in his first season for us, 20 goals last season and four goals already this term.

Mane scored 10 goals from 13 Champions League games for us last season, bagging our only goal in the final as well.

Although the player has a few years left on his deal, we should extend his stay at Anfield.

The 26-year-old has the hunger and desire to constantly get at the opposition. He runs at them full pelt, tries to barge into defences and wants to score. The only thing lacking is his finishing but Salah too started slowly last season and hammered in goals for fun towards the end.

No distractions for Liverpool needed

The Reds, for once, seem to have everything set for a proper title challenge. Quality squad members, a world-class keeper, most players fit and a manager who seems to get the best out of everyone.


The last thing they need is this cloud above their head regarding Mane’s extension.

The 26-year-old is perfect for our playing style and he complements Firmino and Salah. Mane can still get better and under Klopp, we could see him score tons of goals in the years to come.

If we could get the likes of Salah, Henderson and Firmino to pen new deals, Mane’s contract should not be a huge problem. We should just give the player what he wants and keep him on a par with his fellow attackers.

Liverpool face a tough run of games after the international break and we need everyone firing on all cylinders.

Mane will play a key role in the games against PSG, Napoli, Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham. If we come out on top of these clashes, the Senegal man will see his stock rise.

Barcelona have done a lot of messing around when it comes to signing our players in the past (Philippe Coutinho and Luis Suarez are prime examples).

One example saw Gerard Pique claim that Coutinho (h/t Metro) wanted to join Barcelona and that is something we do not need at Liverpool now.

We need to ensure Mane is on the same page with us and if it means giving him the contract he wants, then let’s just get that done soon.

(Video) Liverpool sends fans down memory lane with memory of fantastic goal



Fabio Aurelio Liverpool

Liverpool pulled a rabbit out of the hat by signing Andy Robertson from Hull City. The Scot wasn’t a big name then and didn’t cost us much but he has been incredible since breaking into the first-team.

The newly appointed Scotland captain is easily one of the best left-backs in the world and is only getting better with game time.

Although Liverpool have finally signed a dependable left-back, that wasn’t the case for many years as Alberto Moreno and Jose Enrique never seemed to fulfil their potential.

The Reds were a little unlucky with one player and that was Fabio Aurelio, the Brazilian. The former Valencia player was a Red for six seasons but made just 87 appearances in the Premier League.

The left-back was known for his incredible delivery and had a fantastic moment or two. His goal against Manchester United at Old Trafford is one of our greatest moments post the Champions League win in 2005 and FA Cup in 2006 and the Reds wished the 38-year-old on his birthday.

The Brazilian was great at set-pieces but his injuries prevented him from reaching his potential. Rafa Benitez got the best out of the now 38-year-old but the defender had to retire a few years ago as injuries caught up to him.

Former Liverpool star claims he wants to play under this manager



Kevin Keegan Liverpool

Kevin Keegan’s managerial career can be remembered for his rant against Manchester United and slumping behind the advertising hoardings after Liverpool beat Newcastle 4-3.

The former England star was one of the best during his time as he picked up a couple of Ballon d’Ors and won numerous titles as a player for the Reds.

Keegan certainly knows a thing or two about winning trophies and in a recent interview with the Guardian, the former England captain added that out of the current managers, he would love to play under Jurgen Klopp.

The Reds play attacking football but Keegan claimed he saw a bit of himself in Klopp and hence, would have played under our manager.

“I’d have to go for [Jürgen] Klopp because he’s like me.”

“He is going to tackle someone one day.

“I was very close to it [too]. When someone was breaking away and it was near the touchline, and I was stood there, I was very close one day to bringing him down. I really was.”

The 67-year-old is right about Klopp’s passion for the game and that is one reason why we are doing so well. The German has turned us into one of the best sides in the country and it is time for him to break his trophy duck at Anfield.

The Reds last won a trophy in 2012 but with Klopp at the helm and the players producing incredible performances, we may have something to cheer about at the end of the campaign.

“Wasn’t his best goal”, “He scored better” – Some Liverpool fans are certain Puskas had better goals last season



Mohamed Salah Liverpool

Mohamed Salah came third in the best men’s player category at the recent FIFA awards but the Liverpool star did pick up the Puskas Award for the best goal of the season.

The winning moment came against Everton on 10th December 2017 as Salah jinked past a couple of players before curling the ball into the net.

The effort was adjudged to be better than Gareth Bale’s strike against us in the Champions League final and Cristiano Ronaldo’s effort against Juventus in the same competition.

Salah was on a tear last season as he broke the Premier League scoring record with 32 goals in the competition. The forward had a number of magical moments and a few fans were convinced this wasn’t the Egyptian’s best goal of the season.

There were brilliant efforts against Watford and Tottenham that come to mind. The 25-year-old hasn’t been on fire this season but the award should come as a handy boost for the remainder of the campaign.
