Mane scores hat trick as Liverpool rout Porto 5-0

Mane scores hat trick as Liverpool rout Porto 5-0

It was Mane's first ever hat trick for Liverpool after breaking the deadlock against Porto in the 25th minute before scoring twice in the second half.

Mane scored his second goal after Roberto Firmino's effort was saved before the Brazil worldwide got his 21st goal in all competitions this season.

It has been hard not to feel sorry for Sadio Mane this season. Klopp believes the Senegal global forward is now back to his best following a recent spell of indifferent form.

"Which was the best goal?"

If this was him beginning to rediscover his old form, Liverpool's upcoming opponents should be quaking in their collective boots.

"It was structured what Liverpool were doing". You can say that of course.

Yet against Porto, they showed that is a skill they do have in their lockers after all; controlling the ball, tempo and their opponents from the very first whistle.

While supporters remain divided on the flashy outfit, there is no doubt that Liverpool feel at home in bright orange with Klopp's men averaging four goals per game while wearing the third kit. "That makes it more exciting so congratulations, but hopefully it won't stop".

Expect the Champions League bookmakers' odds to tumble drastically now.

Mane thanked his team-mates after he became only second player to net a treble away from home in Europe, following Michael Owen who scored hat-tricks at Haka in 2001 and Spartak Moscow in 2002. Kylian Mbappe started it with a run on the right side, then Edinson Cavani smartly let the ball through after Mbappe's cross into the area and it ended with Rabiot after Neymar's attempt was deflected by a defender. Mane might not have been talked about as much as Salah and Firmino recently, but this was a reminder of his qualities.

The Senegal global completed his hat-trick on the stroke of full-time with a long-range strike to scored Liverpool FC's 36th Champions League goal of the season.

In the 2008/09 season, Gerrard (from midfield, bear in mind) notched up a rather impressive seven goals in only eight Champions League games - which set the bar for both the most amount of goals in a single campaign for an Englishman, and for a Liverpool player.

Mohamed Salah then showed wonderful composure to steer the ball home for Liverpool's second and his 30th of an incredible debut season at the club.

Those three records have just been added to a ever-growing list of achievements for the Egypt global in his debut season at Anfield.
