Mane On Liverpools draw against Arsenal
Liverpool played a 1-1 draw in Arsenal hence dropped to third in the Premier League after Chelsea and Manchester City who emerged victorious in their respective matches on Sunday.
“Honestly, we are not thinking about Man City or any other team,” he added.
“There is no point putting more pressure on ourselves. It’s still early in the season. We have our work to do and that’s what we are concentrated on.
“We have to take the positives. Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham are very good teams and we have already played them all away and we are still unbeaten. Now we need to try to do even better.”
Mane’s Comment pertaining his on-side disallowed goal.
Mane didn’t criticize the officials for disallowing the goal after deciding it was an offside goal during the first half at the Emirates Stadium.
“I haven’t watched it back and to be honest I’m someone who is not really interested in this kind of thing,” said Sadio Mane.
“If you remember, when I scored a goal against West Ham earlier in the season I was offside and that goal counted.
“So if this time I was onside and it didn’t count then you just to deal with it and accept it. Officials are human beings and sometimes we all make mistakes.
“I think it was a good game, a difficult game. We were disappointed not to win because we had more clear chances than them.
“We struggled a little bit in the first half. Our pressing was lacking at times and it was too easy for them to pass it around. We needed to be more together.
“The manager changed some things at half-time and we improved in the second half. I know we can do better but a draw at Arsenal is not a bad result and now we have to move forward.” The Senegalese concluded.
