Sadio Mane categorically asked for Crystal Palace after Liverpool goal – .


Sadio Mane has admitted he ‘would love’ to face Crystal Palace every weekend as he continued his goal streak against the Eagles.
Mane became the first player in Premier League history to score in nine straight games against a single opponent, a streak dating back to the start of the 2017/18 season.

Since representing the Reds in 2016, the only time the 29-year-old failed to score against Crystal Palace was in Liverpool’s 4-2 win at Selhurst Park in the 2016/17 campaign. .

Mane also presented an impressive record against the Eagles during his days at Southampton, scoring three times in four appearances involving the London club.

After scoring his last goal against Palace, which was also his 100th goal for Liverpool, the Senegal winger joked that it would be “great” to face them every week in the Premier League.

“I’m lucky to score so many goals against Palace. The most important thing was the three points. In the right place at the right time. I am lucky and happy, ”he told the BBC.

“Thank you to all the fans, the club and the staff. Without them, I am nothing.

“I would love to play against Crystal Palace. I’m lucky. It would be great to play them every weekend.

“In my head, I still think it’s possible. I will keep trying and trying and trying.

Mane helped Jurgen Klopp’s side send another statement of intent to the rest of the division on Saturday afternoon.

Liverpool took advantage of Manchester City’s goalless draw against Southampton to return to the top of the table.

Many have predicted this year’s title race could be one of the closest in years, an idea fully supported by Mane as he shared his verdict on the Reds’ closest contenders.

“I think people are not wrong to also say Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United for the title,” he said.

“We will try to be at our best and at this level. “
