Liverpool returned to premier league action on Saturday as they faced Watford away from home. The Reds had an early kick off which means they will move to first position if they win the game.
Liverpool had a great start against Watford. The first goal was scored by Sadio Mane who was set up by Muhammed Salah in the 8th minute. Sadio Mane has set a new record with his goal. The Senegalese is now the only third African player to score 100 goals in the premier league.
Mane joined Southampton from Salzburg in 2014. The player immediately became a force for the club. In his two seasons at the club, Mane scored 25 goals with 21 of them in the league. Mane joined Liverpool in 2016 and has won everything with the club. Mane has scored 103 goals for Liverpool with 79 coming in the premier league.
Only Drogba and fellow Liverpool Star Salah have done the same. However, Salah did it in a different way. The winger did not score a single penalty in his 100 Premier league goals. Only 2 other players in premier league history have done the same (Les Ferdinand , Emile Heskey)
