Sadio Mane Mocks Idrissa Gueye After The Evertonians Time Wasting

Jordan Pickford and Divock Origi stole the headlines in Sunday's Merseyside derby but Liverpool fans were also paying close attention to Sadio Mane's mocking of Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye.

Liverpool needed quite the slice of luck to keep pace with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League season. Failing to beat city rivals Everton would not have been disastrous but they'll be happy for the win.

Their 1-0 victory came about thanks to Virgil van Dijk's miss kick, Jordan Pickford's complete disaster, the cross bar being kind enough and Divock Origi's opportune strike, mainly opportune due to most people not realising he still played at Anfield.


But weirdly the Reds had another Everton player to thank for their win in Idrissa Gueye. The midfielder went down injured during injury time and the extra time added on helped the Reds' cause.

Gueye's international teammate Sadio Mane wasn't happy with Gueye being down 'injured' and tried to speed things up, picking up the physio's bag for example.

When Liverpool scored Mane sarcastically went to hand the Toffee's player with the ball so he could get on with things and Gueye angrily knocked the ball out of his hands:

The two Senegal internationals are friends off the pitch and last week the Everton player revealed that the pair don't talk in the build up, saying, "About a week before the derby we stop talking. We don't send messages to each other and we don't call. Sadio started it, he said: 'Don't call me,' and I said: 'OK, no problem.'"

Hopefully they can go back to talking this week, even after all the bad blood.
