Mane opted to attempt to round the onrushing Rui Patricio and in doing so was caught by the Portuguese goalkeeper.
Whilst perhaps he could’ve gone down and earned a penalty, the 28-year-old attempted to regain his composure to score himself.
Forced wide by the mistake, the opportunity was lost and the move fizzled out to nothing – leading to the belief a potential penalty might’ve been the better bet.
Despite the victory, these Kopites were left frustrated at what is becoming a common theme…
You don’t get pens for staying on your feet even when the keeper grabs your foot

‘Because he doesn’t want Salah to score the pen’ ?. Just go down!

Not going down as he knows Salah takes to the pens

Getting a bit of an annoying habit of being too honest.
