Mane was Gameweek 1's joint-top scorer with 16 points.
His two goals and maximum bonus award earned him double the eight points of Salah against West Ham United on Sunday.
That has made him the most bought player for Gameweek 2, with more than 310,000 transfers in.

Sterling fired the opener in a 2-0 win at Arsenal and will welcome Huddersfield Town to the Etihad Stadium, a place where 11 of his 18 goals and six of his 10 double-figure points hauls were produced last season.
His next opponents, Fulham, allowed a Gameweek-high 10 shots on target during their 2-0 home defeat by Palace.
