An impressive Sadio Mane stat from his Southampton Premier League debut

Southampton winger impressed on his Premier League debut.

Graziano Pelle's sensational goal has stolen the headlines, but the performance of Sadio Mane against QPR should not go unnoticed either.

Mane was making his first Premier League start after a work permit delayed his involvement, following up on his debut at The Emirates in midweek.

In his first appearance at St Mary's he provided an assist, as he helped his side to a 2-1 victory.

Impressively, Mane equalled the top Saints performance this season for successful dribbles, with four.

The winger was far more productive with his four dribbles than Wanyama on the opening day of the season, creating three chances.

The signing from Red Bull Salzburg is blessed with pace and offers Southampton a new option with his direct running at defences.

He is just another exciting weapon for the team defying the pundits flying high in second in the Premier League table.
