Mohamed Salah scored a late goal in Liverpool’s 4-2 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford on Thursday. Liverpool thus kept their chances of a place in next season’s Champions League in their own hands. However, Jurgen Klopp’s men still need to win their remaining three games to guarantee a place in the Premier League’s top four.
This was the Egypt international’s 30th across all competitions this season, which moved him up the Premier League goal scoring charts to equal Tottenham’s Harry Kane with 21 goals, putting him a step closer to winning his third Golden Boot.
This was Salah’s 200th appearance with Liverpool which marked his 170th direct goal contribution [124 goals and 46 assists].
This win over Manchester United marks Liverpool’s first victory over their bitter rivals at Old Trafford since 2014.
By scoring the final goal of the encounter, Salah has become the first Liverpool player in 100 years to score in two different matches at Old Trafford in a single season. He scored a brace earlier this year when Liverpool lost 3-2 in the 4th round of the FA Cup.
