Andreas Christensen’s red card before half-time gave the away team a numerical advantage which they took advantage of in the second half as Mane scored twice in four minutes.

The Senegal winger said: “It was a tough game especially in the first half.

“When they got the red card it made it easier and in the second half we made many chances, scored two goals and deserved to win.

“[For the goal] It was a great ball from Jordan [Henderson]. I am used to them because he is a great player. I tried to make the runs and when he [Christensen] made the foul I knew it was a red card.”

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard meanwhile said: “For chances the first half was very even. The red card changes the face of the game, the talk I do at half-time, it forces me into a reshuffle and it was always going to be difficult after that.

“I think it could be given or not. I was perhaps surprised it was given as a yellow first. If it was given as a red straight away and you continue with that.”

On Arrizabalaga’s error for Mane’s second goal, he added: “Big mistake. Clear mistake and when you reflect on the half without the mistake and the penalty we draw the game 1-1.

“I’m actually happier in many ways than I was after Brighton on Monday. It was a game of spirit and character and lots of individuals showed me good things today.

“I thought we could get higher up the pitch and would have done with 11. I was concerned with how we would defend our box, first half we were brilliant at doing it but the red card changed the whole course of the game.”
