‘They still deliver’: Gary Neville says two Liverpool players proved everyone wrong at Manchester City
Football pundit Gary Neville believes that Liverpool duo Mo Salah and Sadio Mane proved once again just why they are good enough for the reds squad and why jurgen Klopp opted for the duo
Mohamed Salah played in Mane for the Liverpool equaliser as the Reds drew 2-2 with Manchester City. Despite being quiet in few games, the influential pair proved important in Liverpool getting a result at The Etihad.
Rumours emerged of Luis Diaz starting ahead of Mane, while Salah’s place was being questioned due to his lack of goals recently. However, Neville said that the Liverpool pair proved yet again why they get picked.
“In the second half they turned up. Salah and Mane turned up in that second half.
“And people wondered whether they should start, whether Diaz should come in or whether Firmino should have come in,” Neville said on Sky after the game.
“You saw in that second half with Salah and Mane why they’re still operating at the very highest level.
“Why Jurgen Klopp – they’ve built up so much trust – they’ve built up so many credits in the bank for them not to be hoicked off at half-time.
“They still deliver, and they delivered on that second Liverpool goal.”
Mane and Salah have been mainstays of the Reds team for a number of years now. With pressure building over Salah’s new contract, Liverpool fans will be hoping the club can sort something soon.
