Sadio Mane is back in Liverpool training after over a fortnight out with a hamstring injury.
Norwich City will count themselves unlucky that the Senegal international could return this weekend to bolster an attack that really hasn’t needed any encouraging without him.
The 27-year-old has been impressive in front of goal this season with 13 goals and seven assists in all competitions.
However, what separates Mane from the average Premier League winger isn’t just his penchant for finding the back of the net, it’s what he does in the build-up.
Statistically, Wolves’ Adama Traore is the best dribbler in the English top flight.
That’s in terms of successful take-ons and completed, uninterrupted dribbles per game.
Yet, while he’s not always in the conversation about the world’s best in that department, a video has emerged highlighting Mane’s “legendary dribbling skills” and it’s truly something to behold.
Nemanja Matic, Eric Dier, Tom Davies… just a few of the players Mane leaves trailing behind him as he gallops down the wing.
The fact Liverpool have remained in sensational form without him shouldn’t take away from his outstanding displays this season.
Before his injury, suffered in the 2-1 smash-and-grab win over Wolves, he was averaging a goal contribution every 104.9 minutes and there’s no reason he can’t hit those heights again once he gets up and running.
Mane is also among the favourites to land PFA Player of the Year, though he faces stiff competition from his own teammates, with Jordan Henderson and Virgil van Dijk looking more likely candidates.
Norwich won’t be looking forward to welcoming him back to action.
