Arriving in Liverpool during the summer of 2016 from Southampton, Senegalese star Sadio Mané continues to write his name in the Reds’ lead. But one particular statistic is gaining attention. As a Liverpool player, the Senegalese has never lost in the Championship with English champions at the legendary Anfield stadium. Sacred player!
Yesterday on Sunday, Sadio’s Liverpool set a new record. The England club extended their invincibility by 64 games at Anfield after their big win against Leicester (3-0). But Sadio Mané has an even more impressive home record.
Injured in Liverpool’s home loss to Crystal Palace on April 23, 2017, 1310 days ago and absent from the clash (3-2) against Swansea in January 2017. As he was absent at Liverpool’s final at Anfield, this means the Senegalese frontman has never lost his Premier League games at Anfield, with his personal record of 71 games. Amazing!
No player in Premier League history has put together an unbeaten game at the stadium to compare with Mané. His team-mate Mohamed Salah is second on the list, with 61 unbeaten league games at Anfield. Brazilian defender Alex is next on the list after putting together an unbeaten 41-game strike with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, while defender Jaap Stam has gone 40 games without losing at Old Trafford during his time at Manchester United.
Senegalese striker Sadio Mané has just started his 5th season under Liverpool colors. And since the 2016-2017 season, the former Red Bull player Salzburg has not known any defeat with Liverpool at Anfield; club stadium.
A statistic worth mentioning. Sadio Mané has also won numerous titles with Liverpool including the Champions League and UEFA Super Cup, the FIFA Club World Cup and the English Championship. Already this season, the Senegalese is 5 goals in 11 games in all competitions.
