Mane, 27, was instrumental in the Reds claiming three points at Villa Park. He set up Andy Robertson's 87th-minute equaliser and then scored the winner deep into injury time.
After the visit of Genk to Anfield, Liverpool host City on Sunday in the biggest game of the 2019-20 Premier League season so far.
The two clubs fought tooth and nail for the title last season until City finally edged Liverpool into second despite a record-breaking campaign for the Reds:
After 11 games of the new term, with Klopp's side still unbeaten, Liverpool hold a six-point lead over the Manchester outfit at the top of the table:
As a result, despite it still being relatively early in the season, there is a lot riding on Sunday's fixture on Merseyside.
If City win, they will end Liverpool's run of 28 consecutive games unbeaten in the English top flight and cut the gap at the top to just three points.
But if the Reds win, they will take a nine-point lead over City and confidence will soar around the prospect of Liverpool finally breaking their 30-year title drought.
It is no surprise, then, that the war of words between the two managers is well under way.
