Sadio Mane has admitted he wasnt best pleased with Liverpool teammate Mohamed Salah after he ignored a pass to him against Burnley, but the pair have now made up.

The Senegalese forward threw a strop in Liverpools last outing before the international break after Salah opted not to square the ball for an easy goal, gesticulating wildly in the dugout after he was subbed off.

But he made up for it on Saturday, scoring twice against Newcastle at Anfield to extend Liverpools lead at the top of the Premier League to five points.
