Everyone Was Left In Awe Of Sadio Mane's Glorious Backheel Assist
Sadio Mane produced a disgusting backheel assist for Mohamed Salah's equalising goal against Leicester City.
The Senegalese man didn't have his best game in the 2-1 win over Claude Puel's side but when it mattered, he came up with a sublime contribution in the 52nd minute.

Fed by Emre Can with his back to goal in the Leicester half, Mane seemed to have eyes on the back of his head by perfectly picking out the run of teammate Salah with the filthy pass.
The Egyptian man latched on to the pass, maintained his composure and slotted home his 22nd goal of the season. The assist from Mane rightly received the bulk of the plaudits, though.
Here's how Twitter reacted:

Two sexy backheel assists for Mo today from Sadio Mane and *BLINKS HARD* James Milner...- David Martinez (@DMARTINEZ_85) December 30, 2017
Hoping that backheel changes things for Sadio Mane who has been pretty average this season. #LFC- Amit Mishra (@Leamitmishra) December 30, 2017
Beautiful backheel assist from Sadio Mané to find Mo Salah, there. Not been at his best by any means today but comes up with the goods.- Leanne Prescott (@_lfcleanne) December 30, 2017
That backheel from Mane. Signs of a very jealous man clearly as you can all see.- Simeon (@SJftbl) December 30, 2017
*Mane backheel, King Mo goal*- Chris Smith (@cmsmith_14) December 30, 2017
What a backheel that was by Mané :fire:- Alex Truica (@AlexTruica) December 30, 2017
Salah would score again to make it 23 for the season, with James Milner supplying the backheel this time.
Was Mane's assist the best so far this season?
