Liverpool were beaten 2-0 at Turf Moor in the reverse fixture in August, despite having 81 per cent of the possession and 26 shots.

Mane has been explaining how they can avoid further shocks as the season enters its climax…

We must be consistent

"If you want to get to another level, you have to be consistent. If you see the last few weeks, it has been difficult but we have great qualities in the team. If we want to be in the top four, we need to be consistent."

Overcome bad moments

"The most important thing is the reaction. We reacted [to the defeat at Leicester] by winning against Arsenal and the confidence is back now and we are looking forward.

"We are one of the top teams in terms of physicality. Maybe you can say mentality [is the reason for inconsistency] but I don't think it's that. We have had bad moments so we have to accept this and look forward."

Don't worry what others say

"I think the most important thing for us is ourselves and not to think about what people will say. We have to focus on ourselves and give our best. We have to be ready for the next game. If we lose we have to be ready. Every loss or win is a big motivation."
