Premier League

Mané becomes the third African player to score a 100 premiere league goals or more

Just moments ago, Sadio Mané became only the third African player in history to have scored a 100 or more premier league goals. His hundredth goal came from a beautiful Mohamed Salah assist, executing the pass with the outside of his left boot from 28 yards away.

Salah just came off scoring his hundredth and second goal just before the international break, making him the second African player to score a hundred premier league goals or more and just two goals away from tying for the most premier league goals by an African player.

The record for the most goals is owned by the first African player to reach the milestone, Chelsea legend and former Ivory Coast international, Deidre Drogba with 104 goals.

Liverpool are currently leading Watford 2 goals to 0 in the first half. Which African player will break and hold the record of the most premier league goals scored by an African player by the end of the season. With Mané on 100 goals and Mohamed Salah on 102 goals while the record stands at 104 set by the former Ivory Coast and Chelsea player over 5 years ago.

Sadio Mané also holds the record for the most matches in a row against the same team to have scored which is 9 matches in a row against Crystal Palace that he has scored in .

He also holds the record for the fastest hat trick in premier league history and he has done this while he was still playing for Southampton. Is there still, more records to be broken? What's the next record the Senegalese international will associate his name with? Could the Liverpool player become Africa's greatest goal scorer in the English Premiere League? What history will he write...

We are off to the second half and Mané will surely be looking to add another goal to his name...
