The Senegalese hadn’t recorded an assist in his last 40 games at Anfield, however, he broke the curse against Marco Silva’s men on Wednesday
Sadio Mane made an assist at Anfield for the first time since March 2018 in Liverpool’s 5-2 triumph over Everton on Wednesday.

Since his assist against Watford 20 months ago, the Senegal international had gone 40 games without assisting a goal on the Reds’ home ground across all competitions.

However, against Marco Silva’s men, Mane broke the hoodoo with two assists and a goal as Jurgen Klopp’s men strolled past the Toffees.

Six minutes into the game, he assisted Divock Origi for the opener before helping Xherdan Shaqiri double Liverpool’s lead.

The 28-year-old rounded off the reigning European champions’ rampaging first-half display when he slotted in from the edge of the area at the height of another sweeping counter.

Victory for Liverpool keep them as Premier League leaders with 43 points from 15 games – eight points above closest challengers, Leicester City.

With 13 goals so far this season, Mane would be hoping to get more goals when the Reds travel to the south coast to face struggling Bournemouth on Saturday.
