Jamie Carragher expressed his ‘love’ for Sadio Mane after Liverpool beat title rivals Manchester City to reach the FA Cup final.
Liverpool’s hopes of winning four major trophies this season are still alive after Jurgen Klopp’s side defeated Man City 3-2 at Wembley.
The Reds, who beat Chelsea on penalties in the EFL Cup final in February, took the lead after nine minutes as Ibrahima Konate rose well from a corner and headed past Zack Steffen.
Manchester City’s No. 2 goalkeeper Steffen then made a terrible error to gift Liverpool a second, dithering over the ball following a backpass and allowing Mane to nick the ball into the net.
Mane made it 3-0 before half-time with a sweet strike following a superb move from Liverpool, who are just one point behind Manchester City in the Premier League with seven games to play.
Jack Grealish got a goal back for City just after the restart and Bernardo Silva netted a consolation goal in injury-time but Liverpool kept Pep Guardiola’s side at arm’s length as they progressed to yet another final under Klopp.
During Liverpool’s win, Carragher tweeted: ‘I love Sadio Mane. What a player you’ve been and still are for Liverpool,’ with a heart emoji.
