If Firmino can not play against Watford, Klopp has Sturridge, Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri as his reserve final third options, although the trio only have 14 Premier League starts between them in 2018-19. Let's try to do it again and again'.
Mane's spell as "good luck charm" extends to his time with Southampton as he scored in 16 games for the Saints (21 goals in total) and the South Coast outfit won 12, drew three and lost only once when Mane struck.

He added: "It was great to score in front of the Kop and to keep a clean sheet was even more important". I loved the first one (a header) as well. We changed a couple of things during the season, but obviously Bobby was pretty much always involved.
Thirty-five miles away, City were labouring to a 1-0 win against West Ham, thanks to a Sergio Aguero second-half penalty, but ultimately, the two title-chasers ended the night with the all-important three points.

That means James Milner has not only taken over the captain's armband, but also moves to the midfield, with Alexander-Arnold lining up as the right-back. In a game without scoring, I think this kind of performance is exceptional. Against Bournemouth we defended outstandingly well and scored. In that position you need someone who is able to play in the small space, who can give you as well offers in behind, who adapts to the defensive situation, who is football-smart, all that stuff.
"We wanted to play like this every day".
