Sadio Mane sets Divock Origi with the assist of the season pass, as Liverpool vies with city rivals Everton in the 15th game-week.
The Merseyside derby had all the hype possible ahead of the 15th game-week of the Premier League. But few minutes into the game and Liverpool started dominating Everton.
Even though Jurgen Klopp rested many key players including Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Jordan Henderson, the Reds are still looking the dominant side.
One individual who has shined in the game is Sadio Mane, the Senegalese international is nailing the match with his individual flashes of brilliance. On the other side, Klopp’s trust on Divock Origi is paying off as he continues to have a great record against Everton.
Amidst all of this, Liverpool opened the scoring at Anfield in the sixth minute after Divock Origi hit the back of the net courtesy of a stunning assist from Mane.
Mane carried the ball then slid a pin-point pass to the Belgium striker who rounded Jordan Pickford before scoring in an empty net. His pass to Origi was certainly a talking point as the bent of the ball made Everton’s defence look clueless.

I mean just look at this. Heck, you don't even have to be a football fan to admire it. You could write poems on this Sadio #Mane pass, if you are so inclined.

Mane’s rage did not limit till here only, he gave another assist but to Xherdan Shaqiri this time, who made a sublime finish to gain an advantage after Michael Keane pulled one back for Everton.
The Senegalese International later scored an explosive goal while receiving a pass from Trent Alexander Arnold to make 4-1 by the end of the first half.
Meanwhile, Divock Origi enhanced his tally against Everton after receiving pin0point pass from Dejan Lovren. Origi makes a great finish as he chips the ball past Jordan Pickford to contribute in the scoreline.
