The 29-year-old had already reached a century of goals in all competitions for Liverpool last month – a week after compatriot Reds winger Mohamed Salah entered the Premier League’s top ‘100 Club’.
Mane becomes the 31st player to reach the top since the division’s inception in 1992.
The Senegal international opened his account for Southampton in a 1-0 win over Stoke in 2014, shortly after signing with RB Salzburg for £ 3.6million.
Mane scored 21 league goals in two seasons on the South Coast before joining Liverpool in 2016 – and he has now achieved double-digit returns in seven successive top-tier seasons.
His career record of 22 in 2018/19 earned him a share of the Golden Boot along with teammate Salah and Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The following season, Mane also scored 18 league goals to help Jurgen Klopp’s side win their first league title in 30 years – but only managed 11 last season as Manchester City reclaimed their crown. .
Two-thirds of Mane’s goals have been converted at Anfield and with his favorite right foot, while the majority have come from inside the opponents’ area – but he has yet to score a penalty or a free kick direct.
The winger has been most prolific against Crystal Palace in the Premier League – bringing his career tally against them to 13 goals in the 3-0 win at Anfield this season.
