The "tis nothing" crowd ignores that Mane has a major issue with Salah's hero ball antics during odd man advantages ....hence his emotional unraveling today in the most public manner. We saw his built up frustration unleashed.
Note: Though meaningless in the grand scheme, watch the post goal celebrations when Mo or Sadio score. The lack of eye contact....aka frostiness......by their counterpart is intriguing.....while the rest of the squad is jubilant.
Forget about it, like people forget already about Aguero and Pep having it out in front of the cameras, a couple of weeks ago.
Salah is selfish. He's supposed to be selfish, he's not won the Golden Boot the past two years for scratching himself. Mane is also selfish. He wanted to score to put us 2-0 up in the derby 18 months ago, when two teammates had open goals instead. Forwards always want to be the one to put the ball in the net.
We should be talking, celebrating even, the fact that we've kept our first clean sheet, won 3-0, are top of the league, and have set a new winning record. But it's easier to chat about a nothingburger.
There's never a good time to go to Burnley, but August with a week long build up, is about as good as it gets. It's over, it's done with, we've come through it, we've scored in the first half there for the first time since the year dot, and we've won it the easy way for a change.
Mane and Salah are fine. Let's enjoy being top of the league, and look forward to the chance of a 5 point gap to City and 10 point gap to the mancs by the time they get to play again, in the reverse fixture of the last game of the season.
