Mane rated 11-1 to win the PFA Player of Year

SADIO MANE was named as the Premier League’s player of the month for August and the Liverpool flyer is 11-1 with Betway to be voted as the PFA Player of the year this season.

Mane, who has scored in all three league matches against Watford, Crystal Palace and Arsenal, remains behind Paul Pogba, Harry Kane, Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku in the betting.

Pogba has been promoted to 7-1 market leader on the back of United’s perfect start with Jose Mourinho’s men looking to maintain their 100 per cent record at Stoke.

It’s been anything but perfect for Arsenal, who host Bournemouth looking to avoid losing for the third straight Premier League encounter.

Bet365 rate the Gunners 9-4 not to finish in the top six this season, but Arsene Wenger is still 16-1 with Sky Bet to be the first Premier League manager to leave his current position.

Wenger signed a new two-year deal at the end of the last campaign and Hills are 4-11 he is still at the Emirates come the end of this term and it’s 2-1 the Frenchman will have departed.

Hills also go 8-15 that Wenger is Arsenal manager on the final day of next season and it’s 11-8 that the north London outfit have a new boss by then.

Crystal Palace’s Frank de Boer is 4-7 sack-race favourite with 5-2 Slaven Bilic seen as the other realistic candidate for the chop.

Both face crunch clashes – Palace head to Burnley with West Ham hosting Huddersfield – and the  heat will be turned up should results go the wrong way even this early into the season.

Tottenham have loaned out Vincent Janssen to Fenerbahce for the season.

The Dutch forward, who flopped at Spurs following a move from AZ Alkmaar, turned down a number of transfers to Premier League clubs on deadline day in favour of a switch to Turkey with their window still open.

Real Madrid v Liverpool

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Real have won just one of their last four Champions League meetings against English opposition
Expert verdict
Real Madrid have lifted the Champions League in three of the past four seasons but they could struggle to retain their crown against a lively Liverpool. Real have been the dominant force in Europe, with last year’s 4-1 thumping of Juventus in the final in Cardiff showcasing their superiority. However, Zinedine Zidane’s men have not bumped into a front three like the Reds’ often - Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have netted 29 of their 40 Champions League goals this season - and they are vulnerable to the counter-attack.
