Sadio Mane Goal Set Up By Brilliant Mohamed Salah Pass

Mohamed Salah took less than a minute of the second half of Liverpool's huge game with Manchester City to make a massive impact.

Liverpool found themselves behind at the break in what many people were considering a Premier League title decided, at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Despite Diogo Jota's goal, and Ederson trying his best to help Jurgen Klopp's side, City were the better team in the first half and led thanks to goals from Kevin de Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus.

Salah especially had been surprisingly anonymous in the opening stanza of the game, and had lost the ball on eight occasions

However, the Egyptian is rarely out of a game for too long, and inside the first minute of the second half he'd set up Mane.

The Egyptian received the ball on the right wing from Trent Alexander-Arnold, in between two defenders, took two touches to create space and turn, and then played an inch perfect pass for his strike partner to run on to.

Mane didn't take a touch to set himself, instead blasting past Ederson in the City goal to make it 2-2, the score the game at Anfield earlier in the season finished

Ahead of the game the build up to the match was huge, especially after Jamie Carragher claimed it was the 'greatest' rivalry in English football history.

Both sides are trying to make history this season, with City hoping to win the Treble and Liverpool wanting to win an unprecedented Quadruple.

There was just one point and eight games left ahead of kick off so either side winning would hugely swing the title race in their favour.

So big was the match that even Jake Paul was getting involved with the talk, even if his analysis did leave fans questioning if he knew anything about football.

The game started off at breakneck speed, with Raheem Sterling failing to open the scoring after just four minutes, only for De Bruyne to do it just over a minute later.

Jota levelled things up in the 13th minute, when Ederson maybe should have done better, only for Jesus, a surprise starter to give City the lead again.

That was until Salah's brilliant pass split the host's defence at the beginning of the second period.
