Ian Wright has backed Sadio Mane to score a lot more goals for Liverpool FC this season.

The Senegal international formed an impressive partnership with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino in the 2017-18 season.

Mane scored 10 times in 29 games in the Premier League, while the African winger netted 10 goals in 15 outings in cup competitions.

The 25-year-old scored Liverpool FC’s only goal in a 3-1 loss to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

Mane has hit the ground running in the new Premier League season with two goals in a 4-0 victory over West Ham in their Premier League opener.

Former Liverpool FC striker Wright is backing the Senegalese forward to score more goals in the current campaign.

“Mane is going to score more goals this season. A lot more,” Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live.

Liverpool FC signed Mane in a £34m deal from Southampton in the 2016 summer transfer window.

Mane has netted 35 times in 74 fixtures in all competitions over the past two seasons or so at the Anfield outfit.

Liverpool FC have signed Fabinho, Naby Keita, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alisson Becker in the summer.
