Sadio Mane celebrates with passion after youngster Curtis Jones scores against the city rivals Everton in the 3rd round clash in the FA Cup.
Liverpool and Everton met once again at the Anfield last night to play the Merseyside derby which was scheduled to be played in the third round of the FA Cup.
Jurgen Klopp fielded a younger team in comparison to Everton, where many key players started as Carlo Ancelotti intended to win the game by anyway.
But in the end, it was the opposite, as Liverpool was able to get a better score against their local rivals. However, the game was at the stalemate for the most part of the game until Curtis Jones rise to the occasion.
The 18-year-old player scored a sensational curling goal against the Toffees to which Jordan Pickford had no answer as the ball dipped into the top-right corner.
As the Anfield celebrated the goal, substitute Mane couldn’t contain his emotions. The forward was supposed to be resting up after featuring heavily in recent weeks but instead of taking it easy, Mane sprinted down the touchline to celebrate the incredible hit.
He genuinely celebrated more than Jones himself, the moment was called out to be a great example of team bonding and chemistry, where the senior player went to celebrate a player from the youth ranks.

Amidst this, last night was also the debut game for the new signing Takumi Minamino, who joined the Reds from RB Salzburg this month. With this game, Everton has failed to win a match against Liverpool at the Anfield since last 20 years.
The victory surely gave bragging rights to Liverpool fans over Everton by another mile with this staggering difference between the two teams.
