The Liverpool attacker has been in excellent form recently.
Charlie Nicholas insisted that Sadio Mane is Liverpool's 'main man', when speaking exclusively to Sky Sports, suggesting that the Senegalese ace is one of two players who is getting them through what has been a challenging run.
Mane, 26, has been on fire recently, scoring 10 goals in his last 10 outings in all competitions, and his form has proven to be vital to the Reds.
The pacey front-man joined Liverpool from Southampton in the summer of 2016, for a fee believed to be worth £34 million, and he has since gone on to rack up 52 goals and 20 assists in 110 appearances in all competitions thus far.
The Merseyside outfit have been far from their best recently, despite not losing in their last 11 games in all competitions, but Mane has been an exception to that rule.
And Nicholas told Sky Sports how the Senegal international is Liverpool's main man:
"Sadio Mane is the man, not Mohamed Salah or Roberto Firmino. Virgil van Dijk and Mane are the two getting them through this situation."
Liverpool face Fulham away next, and Mane will be keen to continue his excellent form by helping his team to a vital three points at Craven Cottage tomorrow afternoon.
