Liverpool’s Sadio Mane closes in on Didier Drogba’s record after goal in Burnley win

Liverpool's Sadio Mane closes in on Didier Drogba's record after goal in Burnley win

Liverpool vs Burnley

The opening fight of the Premier League weekend is currently played at Anfield.

Liverpool will host Sean Dyche’s Burnley as they look to continue their strong start to the season, crushing Norwich 3-0 last weekend.

The Reds have a pretty excellent record against the Clarets, although they lost to them at Anfield last season.

But Liverpool would pull out a strong eleven on Saturday, which saw Diogo Jota retain his place at the top and Jordan Henderson enter midfield.

And it would be Jota who put Liverpool in the lead on Saturday, heading home from a Kostas Tsimikas cross.

Then, despite some scares from Burnley, Jurgen Klopp’s team continued to dominate and would double their lead after 68 minutes.

Trent Alexander-Arnold played a beautiful dinked ball over Mane, who broke his effort on Nick Pope:

Mane approaching Drogba’s record

Following Mane’s first goal of the season against Burnley, an interesting statistic has come to light.

Mane has now scored 96 Premier League goals during his stints at Southampton and Liverpool, the fourth most played African player in the Premier League.

Chelsea legend Didier Drogba currently holds the record at 104, but with Mane still 29 years old and looking ready to spend at least the rest of this season in Liverpool, there seems to be a good chance that the Senegal international will break the record. of Drogba.

Mane’s teammate Mohamed Salah is also in the race to break the record, currently with 98 PL goals, which Liverpool star will break the record first?
