And it makes the international break a lot more enjoyable for Klopp and his players.
Mane was a constant threat for Liverpool on the day and scored their third goal.

Mane is now on international duty with Senegal ahead of games against Congo and Eswatini.
Based on his Liverpool form to start this season, Mane will no doubt fancy his chances of getting some goals and assists in both of those upcoming games.
