Klopp emphasizes Mane's performance: 'He is in an outstanding moment'
Mane was one of the best on the pitch vs City, carrying out massive loads of work.
"He is in an outstanding moment. It was his birthday today and he gave himself the best present with a fantastic performance. He is so important for us. I didn’t see the situation 100 per cent when he got the yellow card, but I am pretty sure he slipped in the moment. It was unlucky.
"Then, playing our kind of pressing style against a constantly attacking team like City and not being even close to another yellow, that’s really cool. Mo scored the first goal and we love the boy, all good, but the hard work that Bobby Firmino and Sadio did on offensive wings [was important].
"That’s how football should be. If you are in a better moment, Mo became fit yesterday if you want but was maybe not at 100 per cent, you always have to start trusting your muscle again. Sadio Mane is in outstanding shape at the moment and that obviously helps us a lot."
