African wingers Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah have received special praise for their work ethic from Liverpool teammate and goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.
The Senegalese and Egyptian attackers have formed a superb front three alongside Brazilian Roberto Firmino.
Yet the pair’s attacking instincts have not stopped them from putting in the defensive work for the Reds, something greatly appreciated by Mignolet.
"What's special about them [Mane and Salah] too is that they work hard in coming back and helping us defend, that's sometimes more important for a winger", Mignolet told his club's official website.
"Of course, everybody wants to score goals and everybody wants to create chances, but you also have to be part of a solid unit to defend", the Belgian stressed.
"And they do that so you're always grateful for that."
Mane and Salah are set to feature for Liverpool when they face Manchester City in an eagerly anticipated Premier League match this weekend.
