Senegal international Sadio Mane makes our “best performers of the week” list once again with another impressive performance in top-flight English football.

The left-winger opened the scoring at Anfield, putting Liverpool 1-0 in front against Leicester City, five minutes before half time.

He showed his brilliance deep into the stoppage time again, when he stole the ball from Marc Albrighton in the opponent’s box and gained a last-gasp penalty kick for the European champions.

James Milner, who is almost perfect from the spot converted the penalty, as Liverpool extended their run to 17 consecutive Premier League kicks.
