Sadio Mane broke a Premier League record in scoring his 100th goal for Liverpool on Saturday afternoon at Anfield, and Crystal Palace fans will be sick of the sight of him.
The Senegal international has managed the three-figure tally after just 224 outings for the famous club having joined from Southampton for £34million back in 2016.
The 29-yearold scored three goals in five of the campaign’s opening five matches, after scoring 11 Premier League goals last term.
Palace fans will be happy that the forward is only one more fixture in this league, even though the home crowd was delighted with his latest performance.
With his goal against the Eagles on Saturday, Mane broke the record for successive games scored against the same club with an astonishing nine.
This beats Robin van Persie’s eight-in-a row record against Stoke.
Liverpool had won eight Premier League titles in succession, beating Palace by 24 goals and conceding five goals.

Klopp said of his forward before kick-off: “Sadio looks really good, he looks really sharp.
“I know we talk about these things when a striker misses some chances, but that he has the amount of chances he has, the amount of finishes he has, that’s actually the important stuff.
“Sadio is in a good moment; a really good moment physically and mentally as well, so really confident and you can see that.
“A player misses a chance and doesn’t look desperate or whatever, he has a smile on his face and he knows, ‘I could have done this or this better…’ and all these kind of things.
“It’s all good for the moment but Sadio is an exceptional player so he has to perform exceptional because this is the standard we expect from him and he usually delivers.”
Mane will have another chance to improve his record against Palace on January 22.
