SADIO MANE broke Manchester United’s fans’ hearts when he scored in Liverpool’s 4-0 rout against the Red Devils on Tuesday night.
And now Mane’s heaped even more misery on United’s faithful by matching club icon Ryan Giggs’ goalscoring record in 374 games less than the Welshman, an Opta analyst tweeted.

But Mane has hit Giggs’ record of 109 Prem goals in 374 games less than the Welsh former wingerCredit: This content is subject to copyright.
Giggs ran riot for United throughout his career and the former winger snagged 109 goals in 632 games for the Red Devils in the Prem.
But Giggs’ coveted record was smashed by Mane who has now matched the former United winger’s feat in just 258 games for Liverpool in the Prem.
Mane slotted home Liverpool’s third goal of the night against Gigg’s old club just after he setup up team-mate Mo Salah with a sublime pass to score the Reds’ second strike.
And Salah’s also broke a host of records when playing Man United.
The Egyptian winger scored a hat-trick in Liverpool’s 5-0 rout over United in November last year, which was the first in the Premier League against the Red Devils at Old Trafford.
It was also the first treble against United on their own ground since Brazil legend Ronaldo in the 2002-03 Champions League.
But Giggs isn’t the only star that has lost his record to the rampant Liverpool pair.
Salah also overtook ex-Chelsea striker Didier Drogba’s tally of 105 Prem goals to become the league’s highest-scoring African player.
And now Drogba now sits behind Mane too in the rankings.
Liverpool have also gazumped United’s penalty record in the Prem.
The Reds went past United’s mark of the most penalties awarded in the Premier League era when they beat Leeds 6-0 in February.
Jurgen Klopp’s men were awarded two spot-kicks by referee Michael Oliver at Anfield.
They were the Reds’ 170th and 171st in Premier League history.
It took them clear of the 169 that rivals Manchester United have been awarded in the competition’s 31-year existence.
