This weekend was a fantastic weekend to be a Kopite. On Friday the club announced the signing of Thiago Alcantara, on Saturday the arrival of Diogo Jota and on Sunday they strolled to victory against Chelsea. One takeaway from the weekend win was that Sadio Mane edged ahead of Luis Suarez into the top 20 all time Liverpool goal scorers.
Comfortable weekend win
Sunday was billed as a clash that would have some impact on the title race.
Chelsea have been tipped as contenders this season given the mammoth amounts they have spent in the transfer market.
However, the West London side failed to impose themselves on the game. Instead they defended for their lives to no avail.
Andreas Christensen was sent off just before halftime and the game was a doddle from there on out.
Two goals from Sadio Mane secured the victory in a game which saw a record breaking debut from Thiago.
Mane enters top 20 all time Liverpool goal scorers
One man stole the show up front on Sunday.
Sadio Mane netted twice, edging him into the top 20 all time Liverpool goal scorers.
His brace were his 82nd and 83rd goals for the club, putting him in 19th place, ahead of Barcelona legend Luis Suarez in 21st on 82 and Fernando Torres on 81 in 22nd.
What RTK has to say
The two goals epitomised what Sadio Mane brings to Liverpool.
His first showed deadly movement and lethal finishing ability to nod past the Chelsea keeper.
His second demonstrated his work rate as he charged down Kepa to seize on a loose pass and tap in his brace.
Fingers crossed he’ll continue to rise up the ranks of the all time goal scorers, he thoroughly deserves to.
