Sadio Mane was at his irresistible best as Liverpool thumped Everton 5-2 on Wednesday night, and three former players have piled huge praise on the Reds superstar.
Everton must be getting really sick of the sight of both Mane and Divock Origi, and the Toffees-killing pair were at it again on Wednesday.
Origi scored two sublime goals in a vintage centre-forward’s display, but it was Mane who really stole the show, and plenty of pundits were stunned by his display.
Phil Neville said he believes Mane is the best player in the league and possibly in Europe, Gary Lineker simply said he “scores everything” and Jamie Carragher called the Senegal international a “machine”, insisting he is his favourite current player.
Mane you’re a machine! 2 weeks off in the summer!!! My favourite player by a mile. ❤️ #LIVEVE

Another Mane goal. Another @trentaa98 assist. Trent sees everything when he has the ball. Sadio scores everything when he has the ball.

Sadio Mane > Messi, Ronaldo, Mbappe? 🤔

He will look to add to his tally against a struggling Bournemouth side on Saturday afternoon.
Does Harry Wilson deserve a chance at Liverpool?
