David Thompson predicts Liverpool winger Sadio Mane to score 20 goals in the Premier League this season.

David Thompson has predicted on social networking site Twitter that Sadio Mane will score 20 goals in the Premier League this season.

The 39-year-old former Liverpool midfielder has also backed Mane to win the Golden Boot in the Premier League this campaign.

Mane is one of the best players in the current Liverpool team and knows the Premier League inside out.

The Senegal international winger has been on the books of the Reds since the summer of 2016 when he joined from Premier League rivals Southampton for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £34 million.

The 25-year-old scored 13 goals and provided five assists in 26 Premier League starts for Liverpool during the 2016-17 campaign.

So far this season, Mane has scored three goals in four league matches for the Merseyside outfit.

Mane could score 20 goals in the Premier League this season, but it is unlikely that he will win the Golden Boot.

Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane and Manchester United ace Romelu Lukaku are the top two favourites for the topscorer’s award in the league.
