I'll go with Mo. And it's not unlikely that he'll break the century mark before the end of this season. Mané is the outsider, hopefully he'll push Mo all the way!

Bobby will provide the assists for them both! :giggle:

Just remember Bobby has suddenly hit a rich vein of form. And being slightly older might feel it's time to make hay while the sun shines. I think I'm right in saying he's the one whose rate of scoring has been the most consistent over five years.

I started this thread in no small trepidation that it might have a weird nobbling effect on each of them and none of them ends up making it. If I have cursed them, can someone please hire a hit man to do me in fairly painlessly at some point you see fit. Thank you.

Mo gets there first. He's only 15 goals away.
Sadio has a chance given his excellent form, but he is starting 11 goals back from Mo.
Firmino will probably be the third to hit the target.
Mo has got such an amazing ceiling that it could be all over by May, that's right.
However, I think Sadio is the least likely to suffer from the 'nervous nineties', which probably isn't even 'a thing' in football. :sneaky:

It might be for Mo. Seem to remember it took an age (by his standards) for him to get his 50th (not sure if that was league or all comps). Once he got it, he was free flowing again.

I think it will be Mo, he seems to have been reinvigorated recently, I would have backed Mane a few months back but he has gone a bit quiet. Don't mind that they all seem to have those periods.
