Mane: Liverpool planned for Kepa mistake

Liverpool ace Sadio Mane admits they were expecting Kepa Arrizabalaga to make a mistake during victory at Chelsea.

Mane struck both goals for the 2-0 win on Sunday.

It was his second goal which grabbed the headlines, with Kepa - who commanded a world-record £72million fee for a goalkeeper in 2018 - criticised for his mistake.

And Mane told Sky Sports: “Yeah, sure, these kinds of things are always what we try on the training pitch.

“When he got the ball, I knew it will be difficult for him to have an option, the only choice was to shoot it.

“So I was in front of him and he tried to pass it. Unluckily for him, he made a mistake. Lucky for me and I scored a second goal for my team."
