Liverpool fans are delighted with attacker Sadio Mane after he grabbed an impressive brace against Watford.
The Merseyside giants were in exceptional form against the Hornets, as they ran out emphatic winners with a 6-1 trouncing of Walter Mazzarri’s side.
Mane, 24, started and finished the rout, breaking the deadlock in the 27th minute with an inch-perfect header past Heurelho Gomes who later went off injured.
He then doubled his tally on the hour mark after good work from Roberto Firmino gave the former Southampton star a simple tap in from six yards out.
Liverpool fans reacted with delight on Twitter, with many claiming that Liverpool are a much better side with the Senegal international in the side.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Liverpool’s number 19 was substituted in the 63rd minute denying him a chance to score a hat-trick, as he was replaced by Holland international Georgino Wijnaldum.
Mane’s brace takes him to six goals in 11 league and cup encounters following his move from St. Mary’s Stadium in the summer, as Wijnaldum, Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho and Emre Can all joined Mane on the scoresheet.
The win takes the Merseyside giants to the top of the Premier League, after Manchester City dropped points at home to Middlesbrough.
