  • Mohamed Salah netted against Manchester City

Sadio Mane scored a stoppage-time penalty as Liverpool came from behind to beat Manchester City 2-1 in their International Champions Cup clash in New Jersey.

Mane stroked home Liverpool's victor 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.

Jurgen Klopp insisted Mohamed Salah has no shoulder problems as he praised the Liverpool star following his goalscoring return against Manchester City. "You've seen what him and Sadio have brought to the team when they've come on against City".

"We made 75 minutes incredible but the last 15 minutes we were so exhausted and there were some changes and of course their quality of the attacking players they deserved to score more goals at the end".

No Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva or Sergio Aguero meant more time for manager Pep Guardiola to get a glimpse of young talents like Phil Foden and Jack Harrison, both of whom have made the most of their opportunity in a crowded Man City midfield. And if we win a game, that's cool.

City had seven players who played in the last weekend of Russian Federation 2018, either in the final or third-place playoff, but they were not due back until the day after their Community Shield clash with Chelsea on August 5.

"I learned that when I was little boy in Barcelona in the Academy".

"It's only a game we played and a lot of good moments which we can use and a lot of bad moments we can work on".

"In the past it didn't happen, years ago, and that is good for our future. I'm sure this year we're going to do it".

Liverpool (4-3-3): Karius (Kelleher, 46); Clyne (Camacho, 61), Gomez (Klavan, 46), van Dijk, Robertson (Moreno, 61); Wijnaldum (Solanke, 46), Fabinho (Grujic, 61), Milner; Lallana (Woodburn, 46), Sturridge (Mane, 46), Jones (Salah, 61).

After a goalless first half, City opened the scoring shortly after the break when Leroy Sane drove through the Liverpool defence before firing low in to the bottom corner for 1-0 in the 57th minute.

Sane, another half-time change, finally found the breakthrough but City's lead lasted just six minutes before Salah's leveller.
