Carragher’s Shocking Choice of Who is Greater Between Salah, Mane

Liverpool were rescued by Sadio Mane and Mo Salah last Sunday to secure 2-0 victory against Chelsea.

Worry engulfed Anfield at the first-half after a goalless draw but salvation came from Sadio Mane’s 51st goal before Mo Salah fully buried Sarri’s boys with his fascinating screamer.

Most of Liverpool’s goals this season have come from Mane and Salah, who have 18 and 19 goals respectively in the Premier League so far.

Salah is widely regarded as the better player, yet Jamie Carragher claims he would lose the Egyptian if it came to picking between him and Mane for the title run-in.

“I just think… I’m a massive fan of Mane. People talk about Jurgen Klopp and the signing of Salah, unbelievable, Van Dijk.

“Mane’s the one that got Liverpool back. He was Klopp’s first big signing, £30m. He was the signing that got Liverpool into the top four.

“The next season it was Champions League final. This season it’s challenging for the Premier League title. He’s been there from the very start.

“If Liverpool or City win the league, a lot of it’s going to be down to the wide players. When we challenged you (Manchester United) in 2009, we didn’t have that wide player.

Very bold from Carragher, who rates Mane so highly that he would rather sacrifice Salah in Liverpool’s title run-in.
