But what a genius moment from Thiago to send Mane through

But Mane owes a huge debt of gratitude to Thiago, whose stroke of genius misstepped Wolves defenders and left the Senegal international on goal.

And former Liverpool star Jamie Carragher marveled at the brilliance of the Spain international.

“Mane is the goalscorer but Thiago’s role in goal is absolutely sensational,” Carragher said in commentary for Sky Sports.

“This guy has eyes in the back of his head and it shows.

“It’s not Sadio Mane’s best connection but it’s out of this world from Thiago.”

The goal put Liverpool back on track and the belief that they could win a second Premier League title was renewed when Manchester City fell behind at home to Aston Villa – Matty Cash for Steven Gerrard’s side.


However, a draw is not enough for Liverpool due to City’s superior goal difference.

Meanwhile, it doesn’t look like Thiago will produce any more moments of genius in this match after limping on the sidelines at half-time.
