Just look at Carragher - he couldn't stop smiling at Van Dijk.
In-form Mane pounced on a needless charge out of his goal by Manuel Neuer in his 100th Champions League appearance, to round the Bayern keeper with a superb turn before chipping his finish into the empty net in the 26th minute.
Asked about the 27-year-old's performance, Klopp said: "It was brilliant".

"We didn't risk much, we were playing at home it was our game but that's why I think Liverpool beat us".
" We will see what we can do with it but it's still fantastic for us that LFC as a club, we really are back for the last games of worldwide top football".
Some might argue that Mane or Mohamed Salah are more likely to be Liverpool's match-winners in their quest to win a sixth European Cup this season, but Van Dijk is the player who provides the platform for the forwards to perform, and that is why he is becoming as important to Liverpool as Ronaldo is to Juventus (and was to Real Madrid) and Messi is to Barcelona. Liverpool got precisely what they paid for: the best. Whilst Liverpool failed to keep a clean sheet, he nullified Bundesliga's top scorer Robert Lewandowski. "He's so good on the ball, so calm, big and strong - there's not really a weakness in his game at the moment". He also scored a headed goal, Liverpool's crucial second, prompting Klopp to highlight his vast value to this team. "He is still young enough to get better".
Virgil van Dijk delivered another valuable goal to put the Reds 2-1 up on the night, and then Mane made sure they would join English counterparts Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Manchester City in Friday's quarter final draw. "We are in the fight for first position in the league, but we want to play in the Champions League as well, which is the tournament we want to go far in, we want to give everything in this competition as well".
