BBC pundit raves about Sadio Mane on Twitter after Southampton's Chelsea win

The Southampton forward delivered a brilliant display against Jose Mourinho's men.

BBC pundit Trevor Sinclair was impressed with the phenomenal Sadio Mane after the Southampton forward netted and performed brilliantly overall against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge during Saturday's late Premier League kick-off.

The 23-year-old excelled as Southampton left the Bridge with a famous 3-1 win against struggling Chelsea.

And Sinclair gave Mane credit on Twitter for 'absolutely toying' with the Blues.

Meanwhile, former Premier League defender Danny Gabbidon also raved about the Southampton man, labeling him a terrific player despite initially having doubts about him.

There wasn't much the Chelsea defence could do - and they certainly weren't capable even if they could - as the South Coast side ran riot in west London.

This isn't the first time Mane has proved his worth for Southampton, of course, and it'll feel good for the 23-year-old to get his name back out into the populus...

Indeed, Mane's quick-fire hat-trick against Aston Villa last season is two goals less than Sergio Aguero managed against Newcastle United on Saturday.

But the Saints forward diverted some attention back onto him with a phenomenal display at Stamford Bridge. Brilliant stuff from Ronald Koeman's men as a whole.
