Liverpool forward Sadio Mane is almost singlehandedly keeping the Reds in the race on two fronts this season.
His two goals against Bayern Munich were pivotal in progressing to the Champions League quarter-finals, while his opening strike versus Fulham helped return his side to the top of the Premier League.
In 2019, Mane has scored nine league goals, with 11 goals in his last eleven appearances in all competitions. He now has 40 in total for the Merseyside club.
Fans on Twitter have been full of praise for the Senegalese international’s form in recent months:

Let’s not jinx Sadio Mané. I’m serious

He might beat Salah to 50 league goals.

With Mo Salah going through a goal drought after failing to score in his last seven games, Mane’s hot streak in front of goal has been timely.
Liverpool supporters will be hoping that the Senegalese star keeps it up for the rest of the season, with Firmino and Salah both ready to chip in with a few more as well as they bid to finish top.
