How Liverpool’s Sadio Mane can make Premier League history vs Crystal Palace

How Liverpool’s Sadio Mane can make Premier League history vs Crystal Palace

Sadio Mane has a chance to make Premier League history when Liverpool face off with Crystal Palace on Saturday, September 18th.

Mane’s Liverpool struggles

Liverpool, as a squad, had a pretty poor 2020/21 season overall.

This, of course, was partly due to the serious injury woes suffered amid the Covid-19-hit campaign.

But even without such struggles, a number of Liverpool’s stars underperformed considerably across the season.

One such player was Sadio Mane, who, despite hitting 11 goals and eight assists in the league, endured a pretty poor campaign by his standards.

And Mane is seemingly aware of this himself, having undergone tests back in May, to ensure that nothing was physically wrong with him.

Such struggles have carried on into the current campaign, and were evident against Leeds last weekend.

Granted, Mane did end up scoring Liverpool’s third of the day, but the winger fluffed countless major chances before eventually putting one away.

Mane can make history

Mane, though, will be hopeful of his fortunes changing for the better this weekend vs Crystal Palace.

Liverpool will play host to the Eagles in a 3 pm tie on Saturday, September 18th.

And, ahead of the game, it has been revealed that Mane could go on to make Premier League history against the Eagles.

As per the Liverpool Echo, the Senegalese attacker has scored in each of his last eight outings against Palace, a run which began at the start of the 2017/18 season.

Should he notch against them once again this time around, Mane will therefore become the first player in Premier League history to score in nine consecutive matches against a single opponent.
