Record-breaking Mane receives special praise

English Premier League

Senegal star Sadio Mane received some special praise from his Liverpool teammate after setting an impressive Premier League record.

Mane scored for the second straight league game as the Reds defeated Crystal Palace 3-0 at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

With that goal, Mane became the first player in Premier League history to score nine straight appearance against one opponent (Palace).

The 29-year-old also brought up his 100th goal for the Reds, which impressed teammate James Milner.

"It's impressive. Obviously all the boys up there do so much for the team – not only goals," Milner told the club's official website.

"Assists, working for the team off the ball and how we play and press, we couldn't do it without the front boys starting it off. "

"But Sadio has great quality, scoring all types of goals and very important goals as well. Pleased for him because he's such a good player and he deserves the accolades he gets."
