The Reds, who had drawn four of their last five games in all competitions, needed only nine minutes to open the score.

The national team of Senegal has doubled the home team's lead to 20 & rsquo; after another pass by Alexander-Arnold in the area.

Salah, as often happens, was showing a handful on the right channel for Liverpool and the 26-year-old again tested Foster from a sharp angle after making his way into the area.

A block on Craig Cathcart's last stop prevented Mane from potentially sealing his hat-trick.
