The Senegalese Sadio Mané doubled the lead in the 69th minute after a superb pass from Alexandre Arnold. It was his first goal of the season. Mané became the fourth highest African scorer in the Premier League with 96 goals. His team mate Mohamed Salah scored a goal but was disallowed by VAR. The Egyptian is on 98 goals in the English topflight.
