Sadio Mane admits he "couldn't believe it" when the "wrong team" came after him in 2016, with Manchester United snubbed as he held out for a move to Liverpool.

Liverpool, who beat Brighton 5-1 and 4-0 last season, have started the new season with victories over West Ham (4-0) and Crystal Palace (2-0).

As a result, there could be a mini-exodus before Friday with two stars expected to lead the way.

Belgian clubs Standard Liege and Anderlecht are hot on his trail, who is in the past year of his contract.

However, he is yet to feature for the Reds, with Fabinho saying that he needs more time to adjust to Liverpool's style of play.

Likely Liverpool line-up: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Wijnaldum, Keita; Salah, Firmino, Mane.

So far so good, Liverpool have kept a clean sheet in the new season with 9 points.

The link-up play of the front three was not quite as electric and fluid as it so often is, with Mane especially coming unstuck against Brighton's rigid shape when trying to thread balls through the lines and penetrate forwards. The Brazil worldwide made good contact with his header but he could not beat Ryan, who clawed the ball away from goal.
