Sadio Mané has been named the Premier League Player of the Month for August. The Senegalese international has had a blistering start to the 2017-18 campaign, scoring in each of Liverpool’s opening 3 games.

He opened his account with a goal in the thrilling 3-3 draw with Watford on the opening Saturday of the season, following it up with the only goal in a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace. He then scored an impressive strike in the 4-0 demolition of Arsenal on 27th August.

Mané’s debut season last year for Liverpool was nothing short of impressive, scoring 13 goals in a season that was interrupted by the African Cup of Nations. He was named both the Fans Player of the Year and the Players Player of the Year.

Interestingly, the 25-year-old failed to win the club’s Player of the Month award which was awarded to Mohamed Salah who signed from AS Roma in the Summer. The two have been devastating in Liverpool’s impressive midfield. Both should line-up in the big match of the weekend against Manchester City for Saturday’s early kick-off.

Optimism is high on Merseyside as they look to improve on last year’s 4th placed finish, as well as make a run in the Champions League, a competition the club has won on five occasions, an English record. Mané will be expected to be a key factor in the team’s success this year.
