Mane has been Southampton’s stand out player in 2015.

While the 2015/16 season to date may not have lived up to some expectations compared to last term for Southampton fans, they will largely be unanimous in agreeance that Sadio Mane has been their best player this year.

The Senegal forward started 2015 with a terrific performance in a 2-0 win against Arsenal at St Mary’s, and winners came against QPR and Crystal Palace in the following months.

The 23-year-old’s best moment undoubtedly came against Aston Villa at St Mary’s in May, where he scored the Premier League’s fastest ever hat-trick in just two minutes and 56 seconds, which was a big factor in him being on a five-man shortlist for the African Footballer of the Year award, which was eventually won by Manchester City’s Yaya Toure.
