WATCH: Mané creates new way to defend set-pieces

Liverpool forward Sadio Mané has found a new way to defend set-pieces and it's simpler than one could ever of imagined.

The Senegal international found the back of the net for the Reds in a 3-1 win over Manchester United on Sunday. The 26-year-old, though, made a distinct impact on the game even before his wonder goal.

Faced by the challenge of keeping tabs on Romelu Lukaka from a Red Devils free-kick, the Liverpool man found a new life hack; by simply pushing the burly forward into an offside position moments before the ball was whipped into a dangerous area.

It is not clear whether the referee would've awarded a penalty kick if Lukaku had gone to ground, but the risk paid off for Mané.
