Senegal international Sadio Mane extended his English Premier League-record on Saturday.
The 27-year-old winger extended his run of matches without defeat for 2019/20 UEFA Champions League winners Liverpool FC at the Anfield Stadium to 50.
The lethal attacker scored twice to help his side recover from an early concession to beat Newcastle United 3-1.
Mane already held the PL record for the most games without suffering a loss at one ground and reached his half-century with the Reds as they continued their 100 per cent start to the season.
In fact, his overall total is 51 league matches unbeaten at Anfield, having scored at the stadium for Southampton in a 1-1 draw in October 2015 according to the club’s official website.
Liverpool teammate Mohamed Salah, meanwhile, is now outright second on the list with 42 Premier League appearances at the Reds’ home without defeat.
Salah joined the Reds from Italian giants AS Roma ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.
