“I love playing alongside him” – Sadio Mane names his favourite team-mate

LIVERPOOL star Sadio Mane has revealed that he loves playing alongside Mohamed Salah.

The Egyptian winger scored twice in yesterday’s 4-1 win at West Ham to take his tally for the season to 12.

And Mane, who made his return from a hamstring injury at the London stadium, can see the summer signing scoring even more.

“Mo is a fantastic signing for us,” he said.

“Everyone is happy to have him in the team.

“We are trying to help him score more goals for the team and he will do it. He is a great player.

“Honestly, I always enjoy playing with these players. We know each other well. Not just the front three but all of us.
“We look forward to playing more games together and playing some good games.”

It was Liverpool’s third win in a row and it leaves them fifth in the Premier League table, 12 points behind leaders Manchester City.

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic is under pressure and with no win in their last four games, they find themselves in the relegation zone, one point from safety.

Both sides return to action after the international break. Jurgen Klopp’s side host Southampton while West Ham travel to Watford.
