Sadio Mane keeps title dream alive for Liverpool

Sadio Mane was the hero for Liverpool, with his 65th minute header sealing a vital win over Aston Villa

The 2-1 win for Liverpool sees them move level on points again with Man City, and puts some pressure back on Pep's team ahead of their trip to Molineux, where they face Wolves on Wednesday. 

The match got off to the worst possible start for Liverpool, with Douglas Luiz putting Villa ahead after just 3 minutes. 

Steven Gerrard's team couldn't hold onto that lead for long though, and Joel Matip levelled the match after just 6 minutes. 

The Reds did make some charges ahead of this season’s FA Cup Final on Saturday. Red's boss Jurgen Klopp decided to leave Andy Robertson, Thiago Alcântara and Mohamed Salah on the bench.

But one of his equally as important, and probably most unsung, star - Sadio Mane- came to their rescue.

Mane's headed winner was his 22nd goal in all competitions for Liverpool this season. This underlines just how important the Senegalese striker is to the Reds. 

Jamie Carragher was singing his praises on Sky Sports after the match, and you can see why.

The job Sadio Mane does for that team is phenomenal. And in my opinion, without him, Liverpool would be nowhere near the quadruple.
