Mane And Salah Will Become The Highest Scoring Africans In The EPL With This Formation

The highest Scoring African in the Premier League history is former Ivory Coast and Chelsea striker, Didier Drogba.

He scored 104 goals in the English Premier League and left a legacy which many thought will not be beaten. So far Liverpool forwards, Sadio Mane and Mo Salah are edging closer to beating Drogba's record, and there is a major reason why they are scoring freely at the moment - their starting Lineup. Mane has 98 Premier league goals at the moment while Salah has 101 premier league goals to his name.

Their lineup for the past two years normally features Mane and Salah alongside Diogo Jota or Roberto Firmino as the target man and this formation makes them.

both flexible and easier to cut in from both the left hand side and the right hand side of the field.

Also, Salah and Mane are dribblers and they are always played on the wings which conveniently puts them in their comfort zones. If this Liverpool formation featuring a three-man attack continues to be used, then Salah and Mane will surpass Drogba's record in no time.
