How exactly does a professional football player for Liverpool prepare for a game against the Premier League champions?

Well, if his name is Sadio Mane, the answer is simple - by playing Candy Crush on his phone!

The Senegal international was pictured by an eagle-eyed journalist on his way into the King Power Stadium for the clash with the champions, with his phone showing the wildly popular mobile game.

Candy Crush became one of the most popular games on mobile after its release in 2012, with over 90 million people reported to be playing in 2014; the game involves swapping coloured pieces of candy to make a match of three or more and thus eliminate them.

While the preparation is novel, it certainly appears to work for Mane, who has enjoyed a prolific season at the Reds following his £34 million summer move from Southampton.

The Senegal international has scored 11 goals in 22 games this term and has also provided five assists, with Liverpool currently fifth in the Premier League table.
