The Senegalese drove the ball forward from midfield before picking out , who shuttled the ball out to Alexander-Arnold on the right. Mane continued his run into the box and met the right-back's cross to finish first-time and double Liverpool's lead.

Atletico were reduced to ten men for the second game running against the Reds as Felipe was given a straight red card for dissent towards referee Danny Makkelie after initially bringing down Mane with a cynical tackle.

Jota had the ball in the back of the net inside five minutes of the second half as he got on the end of an exquisite pass by Joel Matip, but the goal was ruled out for offside against the Reds forward as it stayed 2-0.

Former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez then saw a goal disallowed himself after his strike had ricocheted off Joel Matip and past Alisson in goal, but VAR intervened again to rule the goal out for offside in the build-up.
