Greenwood, however, always seemed to be a little over the last defender as he shot the ball past Peter Gulacsi.

While another added: “How was Greenwood on the side last night and Sadio Mane delivered, how on earth????
a third person said, “The VARs verified that the player involved was not Sadio Mane and awarded the goal.
