Sadio Mane was one of Liverpool's best players to start the season, the Senegalese has 7 goals to his name already.
However, that's dried up in December, with Mane going 9 games without scoring a goal. In that time, he's managed just 1 assist.
Mane's lack of scoring has come from his inability to finish, with the winger not registering more than 1 shot on target in those 9 games. In 3 of those games, Mane didn't register a shot on target at all.
This isn't down to lack of opportunities, as Mane has managed 2.6 shots per game in that 9-game stretch.
Mane missed a big opportunity against Leicester as well, something that is becoming too common over the last year and a half.
The Senegalese will now go off to AFCON and the hope is that a change of scenery can unlock his qualities once again.
