Offsid-io? Mane goal leaves Liverpool rival fans fuming at dubious offside decision
SADIO MANE fired Liverpool on their way to victory against Bournemouth, with a hint of good fortune.
The Senegalese striker put his team ahead midway through the first half but seemed to be in an offside position when James Milner crossed the ball.
Liverpool eventually won 3-0 at Anfield and fans were not happy with one social media account branding the officials a "disgrace".
This is Mane's second goal of the week and both have been shrouded in offside controversy.
He opened the scoring against West Ham on Monday but James Milner was clearly offside in the build up.
Simon Beck was the linesman at the London Stadium and was dropped for this weekend's fixtures after the blunder.
Sadio Mane has scored to give Liverpool the lead against Bournemouth. Offside once again but the linesman doesn't call it. The referees in the Premier League are a disgrace. pic.twitter.com/8FeVp7hYWd — 360Sources (@360Sources) February 9, 2019
Proof Mane was offside... How much @fa and @premierleague are going to help @lfc win the title??? Unbelievable pic.twitter.com/9jOUEU1T2Q — Palash Agrawal (@drpalashagrawal) February 9, 2019
But against Bournemouth pictures show the linesman was well positioned but decided to keep his flag by his side.
Although unclear, Mane's head appeared to be slightly ahead of Nathan Ake when the ball was played.
Goals from Mo Salah and Georginio Wijnaldum completed the comprehensive win.
The Reds went top of the Premier League with the victory but fans were not happy with how it started.

I’m sorry but that is not a difficult call from the linesman based on the position he’s in. Mane is offside the whole time and is visibly in front of the last defender #LIVBOU https://t.co/gnam45ox2U — Samuel Porter (@samporterxd) February 9, 2019
