WATCH: Coutinho, Mane execute perfect corner kick routine for great goal

After tons and tons of pressure applied by Liverpool to Watford to open their Premier League match, the Reds have finally broken through just 27 minutes into the match thanks to Sadio Mane.

The goal came off of a beautifully worked short corner routine that saw Coutinho play it Milner, who then returned it to the Brazilian to cross into the box. There Mane was to head on into the far corner of the goal for a great piece of teamwork:

You won’t see many better worked goals off of a corner than that. You have to think they’ve practiced that one many times on the training ground. It’s paid off on the field in a big match. As it stands now, Liverpool are top of the table!
