Premier League: Sadio Mane shatters Premier League record, check out: Sadio Mane 100th Liverpool goal shattered the Premier League (PL) record on Saturday as the Senegalese became the first player to score in the nine consecutive top-flight matches against the same opponent.
Liverpool forward’s scoring run against Crystal Palace started back in August 2017. It moved Mane one ahead of Robin van Persie, who had found the net in eight PL matches in a row against Stoke City. Mane’s goal in the 3-0 win at Anfield against Crystal Palace was also his 100th for Liverpool in all competitions. He became the 18th player to hit three figures for goals in Reds history – and the second in the current squad after Mohamed Salah – doing so on his 224th appearance.
