It has been a good weekend for Liverpool as they won their last match in the Premier League against Leicester City by 3-2, making it their third win in six matches so far this season. However, the manager, Jurgen Klopp will be far from happy and is quite worried about his side’s show in the Premier League this season.
The Reds have been a very good attacking side but have succumbed to pressure whenever coming in front of a counter-attacking side. They have been inconsistent in their performance, to say the least, and might look forward to one of their mainstays in the attack, who is set to make a comeback after a suspension.
The Senegalese forward was shown the red card and was sentenced to a three-match ban having accidentally kicked Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson in his face while vying for the ball in their fourth match of the Premier League. The Reds lost the match by a staggering 5-0 scoreline and also one of their most trusted attackers in the form of Mane.
However, now that the player is back after the layoff, it might give them the much-needed impetus to score more goals and get the better of their opponents in the forthcoming matches of the season.
Their gaffer Jurgen Klopp will also be more than happy with his return and will look to utilise him as much as possible with his other forwards to get his side in a strong position in the Premier League.
From the perspective of the players as well, the likes of Salah and Firmino will be relieved that their colleague has made it back to the side and hopefully will star for them throughout the rest of the season and help them have a good run in the domestic as well as European competitions.
The player was brought into the side in 2016 from Premier League rivals Southampton. However, it did not turn out to be a very good first season for the 25-year-old, as he had to miss a considerable chunk of the season due to a severe injury scare. However, he came back strongly this season and is expected to play a very important role in the side and help them finish in the top four once again.
Jurgen Klopp has been a staunch believer in attacking style of football and hopefully, his “gegenpressing” style of play will be well supported by the arrival of Mane.
