Jurgen Klopp’s men have started the season in fine form, taking seven points from their opening three Premier League games.
Despite a wealth of high-profile attacking options, Mane has been an ever-present figure for Liverpool so far this campaign, scoring in every game he has featured in.
And that has reflected the betting market, with some firms now offering as low as 6/1 for the Senegal international to pick up the prize at the end of the season.
According to betting comparison site, Oddschecker, 18 per cent of the bets placed in this market since August 11th have been on the attacker.His initial price was as big as 25/1 before a ball had been kicked but he is now one of the front-runners for the accolade.Other Red Devils players feature towards the top of the market, with Nemanja Matic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan both being backed after United’s electric start to the season.
You can also still find odds of 25/1 for Philippe Coutinho, despite the Brazilian not featuring for the Reds so far this campaign.
Manchester United’s Paul Pogba is also as short as 6/1 with some firms but Mane now looks like the more likely winner.
