    Brilliant performance. Mo is brilliant but really pisses me off at times with how selfish he is. We should have won 5-0 today if he hadn't have been so greedy. Hopefully they sort it out. Sadio was right to be angry

    I blame Harry Kane for the way Salah can be at times. Imo he became more selfish ever since Kane made a massive deal about claiming a goal in 2018. It's like he clicked a switch on in Mo and doesn't look like being switched off anytime soon.

    Great performance today.

    I have no problem with a striker being greedy. I remember Mane shooting against Everton in Anfield when he should have squared it.

    Its all about the 3 points.

    It's so hard to write stories about a routine 3 nil win against a tough opposition these days that the narrative will be obvious. I was collecting the in laws from the airport as the game was on and I'm actually embarrassed to say I forgot about it's existence.

    Good point !! Bit over the top from Mane, but Salah was a pri€k for not passing a few times ..he's got to think of the team & not his goals tally...we should have got another 1 or 2 today...
    Great to win at the sh1thouses again & no one crippled !

    Unbelievable how straight forward that was yesterday, in the past would have been worried about going somewhere like Burnley but we’re so good right now.

    Really pleased with yesterday

    I fully expected Burnley to go after Adrian, but they weren't allowed.

    And Adrian did superbly when called into action!

    Think Mo had every right to go try and shoot himself to be honest, the one that I was annoyed about was the one where he should have played in Firmino.

    The thing I'm most dissapointed about is how good a goal we didn't score. It would have been a cracker.

    Salah should have passed and Mane had a right to be pissed off.

    Mane shouldn't have showed his disappointment in such a public way,it created a story.

    It's probably not a big deal,players get pissed off with each other all the time.

    Great win, 4 out of 4. Great weekend of other results too with Arsenal Spurs Chelsea and United all dropping points. 5 and 7 points ahead of all of those after 4 games, I wouldn't have expected that so early.

    Club record 13 wins in a row. Brilliant. This team is the best in the Premier League now in my opinion. I think the only thing standing in our way currently is the fear element that City give the opposition. They have the game won half the time before they set foot on the pitch. How many goals do they score in the opening minutes of games and then coast through the game, stepping it up every now and then to grab another goal. We are respected by the opposition but winning the league this year will cement us as the team to fear

    Shows how far we've come that I'm not bothered about other results other than Citys. A two horse race from day one. Most other years we'd already be on our way to 2nd league win in a row.

    Completely bossed the game (despite the usual shitehouse tactics of Dyche and co)
    Win number 4 on the bounce
    Top of the league and looking as strong as last year despite the worlds best keeper being sidelined.
    Club record 13 wins on the spin

    So after all that, what are the 3 planks on MoTD2 on about? Mane getting the hump. They go back and pull stats of passes to each other and clips of Salah NOT passing from the past 2-3 seasons and try make something out of it.
    Wright claiming he NEVER refused a pass over shooting himself....my hairy left armpit he didnt. Every striker is going to try get a shot off himself if he thinks theres a chance to score.

    By the by, MoTD's own stats kinda poo-pooed their own narative. Salah has passed the ball to Mane more than vice versa in the last 2 years.

    Yes Mo can be a greedy fcuker, so can Mane. Its part of the definition of a striker. Mo has 57 goals in 78 games, Mane has 47 in 96. Considering most of both their games were played together - thats 125 goals in roughly 100 games together. Greedy or not - it works.

    James Milner produced another nugget in instagram.....

    "Maybe I misread this, but I’m pretty sure Sadio was reacting to me not getting brought on."
    Milner accompanied the post with two amusing hashtags, which read "#getmillyon #thanksmate".

    Mane then responded by admitting: "It's exactly what I [had] been complaining [about]."

    Personally think Mane more upset he was taking off and why not Salah
    Think the club also trying to manage his mins as he had his break cut short

    Storm in a tea cup from a very emotional player
