Comparing Sadio Mane’s goal record to other no-penalty PL centurions
Getting to 100 Premier League goals is a stunning sporting achievement – only 31 men have managed it since the English top flight was rebranded in 1992.
Getting there without scoring a single penalty somehow makes it all the more special. On Saturday in Liverpool‘s 5-0 win over Watford at Vicarage Road, Sadio Mane became just the fifth player to do so.
The brilliant Senegalese winger joined Andrew Cole, Les Ferdinand, Emile Heskey and Peter Crouch in the select band with 100 or more Premier League goals none of which came from the spot.
Here, we compare Mane’s stats to the rest of the illustirous quintet.
