Sadio Mane gave Liverpool the lead in the first half on Sunday night a goal which proofed sufficient for the three points and was instrumental in further cementing the 13 points advantage the team enjoys over closest contender Leicester.

The Liverpool and Senegalese ace has now been involved in 30 goals in the Premier League this season a feat which he shares with Jamie Verdy of Leicester City.

Mane slotted his shot past Rui Patricio in the Wolves’ goal after the ball bounced off Adam Lallana and a long VAR consultation to check for a possible handball later confirmed the goal. Wolves would soon be at the end of their own VAR controversy when they thought they’ve leveled things just before half-time only to be denied by VAR.

Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino both had chances to put the game beyond doubt but flustered their attempts.

1-0 the game ended and Liverpool remained top while Wolves remained sixth on the log.
