Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has admitted Liverpool expected Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga to make a mistake during Chelsea’s 2-0 defeat to Liverpool.

Mane scored both goals for Liverpool, with Kepa gifting the Liverpool forward the second goal.

Mane told Sky Sports: “Yeah, sure, these kinds of things are always what we try on the training pitch.

“When he got the ball, I knew it will be difficult for him to have an option, the only choice was to shoot it.

“So I was in front of him and he tried to pass it. Unluckily for him, he made a mistake. Lucky for me and I scored a second goal for my team.”
