Senegal and Liverpool forward Sadio Mane is seen as the fastest man in the Reds camp according to teammate Joe Gomez.

Gomez compared the ‘Smiling Assassin’ to fellow attacker and Egyptian international Mohammed Salah.

The two African exports have started the 2017/18 English Premier League campaign with aplomb for the Anfield side.

Between the two of them, they have netted 33 goals in the current season and are showing no signs of stopping.

However, the Reds defender reckons the West African is the fastest player in Jurgen Klopp’s team.

"The thing is, Sadio over three or four yards – when he stops it, shifts it and goes – you can’t stop him," he pointed out to the club’s website.

"They have probably got speed in different ways. Mo can just keep going and maintains that speed throughout, so for the through ball it’s nice to have him on the receiving end.

“But Sadio is very quick as well."

Heading to this weekend, Mane and Salah will hope to lead the Reds’ attack when they meet West Bromwich Albion in the fourth round of the FA Cup at home.
