​Liverpool's Mane gains confidence from Burnley goal

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane admits his superb strike in a 2-1 win against Burnley has given him a confidence boost.

The 25-year-old Senegal international has struggled for confidence in recent weeks, but his goal at Turf Moor has given him a much-needed lift heading into the second half of the season.

"It was important for myself and the team," he said. "I am trying to give my best to help the team. At the moment it is not easy, it was very difficult.

"I think it pushed me up to get more confidence to help the team."
