Liverpool Star Sadio Mane Creates Club History With Strike Against Crystal Palace

 Sadio Mane created a little piece of history for himself at Selhurst Park

Sadio Mane created Liverpool history tonight when scoring against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

The 26-year-old – who was making his 150th appearance for Jurgen Klopp’s side – became the first Reds player to net in three consecutive league matches against the Eagles.

Mane banged in strikes against Palace both home and away last season as Liverpool won 1-0 at Anfield and 2-1 in South London.

And he added the latest chapter of his Palace memoirs in the dying seconds of the 2-0 win on Monday night.

 The Senegal star became the first Reds player to score in three consecutive matches against Crystal Palace

Defending their goal advantage courtesy of James Milner’s penalty, Mo Salah led a counter-attack from a corner to tee-up the Mane to race clear and round the goalkeeper before slotting home.

The ex-Southampton ace has found Roy Hodgson’s men to be a lucky opponent after taking his tally to six goals in eight games against them.

The Senegal’s World Cup star is coming off the back of a starring display against West Ham.

He popped up with a brace as the Reds eased to a 4-0 triumph on the opening day.

In doing so, he became the first Liverpool player since John Barnes to bang in strikes in three successive season-openers.

Mane will be hoping for more joy in front of goal when the Reds welcome Brighton to Merseyside on Saturday.
