Sadio Mane celebrates Virgil Van Dijk goal with Robert Firmino celebration imitation during their Premier League match vs Brighton.
Liverpool have been handed a major boost in their quest for a maiden Premier League title after Manchester City drew 2-2 against Newcastle United early in the day. A win against Brighton at the Anfield will give them an 11-point lead heading into December.
The Reds have taken a commanding lead at the time of writing with a 2-goal lead near the one-hour mark. Ballon d’Or contender, Virgil Van Dijk was the hero of the first half; scoring two massive headers to put Liverpool ahead.
However, you’d be forgiven if you thought it was Sadio Mane who scored the goal considering his celebration. To make matters even more hilarious, the Senegalese forward copied teammate Roberto Firmino’s kung fu kick celebration.
