Liverpool winger Sadio Mane has limped off in the second-half of the Merseyside Derby with what looks like an ankle injury.

The Senegal international had gotten the Reds off to a flying start at Anfield when he broke the deadlock after seven minutes with a brilliant left-footed strike from outside the box before Phillipe Coutinho scored Liverpool's second with a superb individual goal.

Mane crashed to the floor after a challenge from Everton left-back Leighton Baines, but eventually found his way back to his feet only to limp off with an ankle injury to be replaced by Origi, who extended Liverpool's lead to two just moments after coming on to the pitch.
