Sadio Mane was short of confidence and without a goal since the start of December when Liverpool came to St Mary’s just before the international break.

Two goals, including the winner, in an incredible comeback win that saw Southampton beat the Merseyside outfit 3-2 on the south coast has seemingly brought the forward back into fine form, as proven by his performances for Senegal over the Easter weekend.

In two 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matches against Niger, the 23-year-old picked up three assists as the African nation maintained their 100% record.

He set up Hull City’s Mohamed Diame and Everton’s Omar Niasse in a 2-0 victory at home, and won a penalty in the second match in Niger on Tuesday as Senegal ran out 2-1 winners to move his country to the brink of qualification for the tournament next year.
