Despite Liverpool’s loss to Manchester United, Mohamed Salah breaks a record.



Liverpool were beaten 2-1 by Manchester United at Old Trafford to fall to Premier League rivals, but Mohamed Salah made it to the scoresheet

Despite Liverpool's loss to Manchester United, Mohamed Salah breaks a record.

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah may not have been happy with the Reds’ result at Old Trafford, but he still broke a personal best.

Salah found a break on a frustrating night, beating David de Gea late, but it wasn’t enough to save a result for Jurgen Klopp’s side. Goals on both sides of the interval from Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford saw Manchester United finish the evening with all three points, over Liverpool in the process.

The goal was Salah’s tenth against United, eight of which made it to the league. It won’t be very comforting, though, with a flat cry from exhausted visitors leaving them without win after three league games.

Salah hasn’t scored in any of his first four games against United. The first three of those came with Jose Mourinho – his former manager at Chelsea – in the opposing dugout and included Mourinho’s very last game as United boss in December 2018.

The former Roma man scored his first goal against the Red Devils in Liverpool’s 2019-20 season, netting a late brain in a 2-0 win at Anfield. Another followed at the end of the 2020/21 season with a win at Old Trafford, while he also scored twice in an FA Cup fourth round defeat.

However, he really caught fire last season when he netted a hat-trick at Old Trafford and two more at Anfield as Jurgen Klopp’s side scored nine unanswered goals in two games against United. Monday’s effort was enough for Salah to become the first player to reach double figures in matches between the two rivals.

The goal on Monday night was for Salah to score for the second time since he signed a new contract to keep him at Liverpool until 2025. His team still remains at zero, with injuries and suspensions that keep the men of Klopp.




“Obviously we are in a difficult situation. We will get through the week with 14 players on hand and we need to make sure none of them get injured now,” Klopp said after the match. “There are no more real options, even in our situation.

“We should have won this match, I know it sounds ridiculous, but that’s how I see it: we lost it and now we’re leaving here.

“How worried am I? I’m not sure, I’m worried about our situation, but that’s it. We are dealing with it and we feel we can play better, we know.” We have to accept it tonight and from tomorrow we will fight it
