Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane responded for Liverpool as they came from behind to beat EPL Champions Manchester City 2-1 in their ICC pre-season match on Wednesday.
Mane stroked home Liverpool’s winner from the penalty spot deep into stoppage time to give Jurgen Klopp’s men a morale-boosting victory over an under-strength City team at the MetLife Stadium.
But the period of concerted pressure from the Reds finally paid off in injury time.
Awarded a penalty when Dominic Solanke was fouled in the back by Tosin Adarabioyo, Liverpool forward Sadio Mane rolled his spot-kick to the left as Joe Hart dived in the opposite direction, providing a dramatic close to the match between the Premier League rivals.
The victory extended Pep Guardiola’s winless streak against Liverpool to four games, though his side lacked the vast majority of his first team who are still recovering from the World Cup.
