The Senegal international is now the third-top scoring player in the game on 57 points.
He has supplied double-figure hauls in three of his seven starts this season.
Yet Mane's ability to produce explosive returns has yet to convince FPL managers when it comes to selecting a captain.

He was only the eighth-top armband pick for Gameweek 8, backed by 251,000+ as their skipper.
And that reluctance has been reflected across the season, where Mane has yet to be among the top five captains in any Gameweek in 2019/20.
After helping Senegal reach the final of the Africa Cup of Nations in the summer, Mane featured as a substitute for Liverpool in Gameweek 1.
But he has since started each of the subsequent seven Gameweeks, providing 56 points.
By comparison, his team-mate Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) has 43 points over the last seven Gameweeks.
That not only strengthens Mane's appeal as a more cost-effective option in the Liverpool attack, it also highlights his potential to be a major armband alternative to the Egyptian in 2019/20.
