There is some difference between the Reds duo in terms of their goal return this season, but a training ground face off delivered a surprise result

Sadio Mane has netted 11 times for Liverpool this season, while Emre Can has offered a four-goal return.

Mane is a lively winger who comes alive in and around the penalty area and has shown himself to be a regular source of goals on a Premier League stage.

Can, meanwhile, is a Germany international more renowned for his defensive qualities than any prowess in the final third.

Sometimes, though, moments of magic can be conjured up by the unlikeliest of sources.
