After seven years from the first goal he scored for Southampton in the Premier League, the Senegal international is now among the players who netted 100 goals.

Sadio Mane

found the back of the net 100 times in the Premier League and he hit the milestone without any penalties.

The 29-year-old reached his milestone when he netted a pass from Mohamed Salah in

Liverpool

’s clash on Saturday at Watford.

He found the back of the net for the first time in October 2014 as he netted the winner for Southampton in their 1-0 victory against Stoke City.

The Senegal international met the target nine times that season and impressed the Reds to make an offer of around £34million for his services.

Although some had doubts about him at the beginning, Mane settled fast and scored 13 goals in 27 games in his first season with Liverpool.

He is on his way to make it eight seasons in a row with at least 10 goals in the Premier League, with the battle against Watford bringing his fifth goal from eight games this season.

The most impressive thing about Mane’s goalscoring accomplishment at the Reds is that his 100 goals come without any penalties.

He became the 31st player to have found the target at least 100 times in the Premier League but he is the third to have done it without any penalties, with Les Ferdinand (149) and Emile Heskey (110) coming before him.

He is also the third African player to have reached that milestone after Didier Drogba and Salah.
