History-making Salah had no concerns about barren Liverpool run

Mohamed Salah ended a scoring drought to make Premier League history against Manchester United, but the Liverpool attacker was never worried about his barren run. 

After six appearances without a goal in all competitions, Salah added to Luis Diaz’s opener in the 4-0 victory over United that sent the Reds top of the Premier League on Tuesday. 

The Egypt international doubled his tally in the 85th minute, becoming the first player to score five Premier League goals against United in a single campaign. 

Salah’s double ended a two-month wait for a goal from open play in the Premier League, with his prior three having come from the penalty spot.

“I said before many times, I score many goals for this club. It’s going to keep coming,” Salah told Sky Sports. 

“Sometimes you have bad luck, but the team winning is the most important thing. If the team wasn’t winning, I wouldn’t be happy. But if the team’s winning, everything’s going to come, so I was not worried about that.” 

Sadio Mane was also on target as Liverpool completed a double over the Red Devils by an aggregate scoreline of 9-0. The only time United have suffered a heavier joint loss in their league history was 11-0 against Sunderland in 1892-93. 

Asked to explain Liverpool’s dominance of the rivalry this season, Salah said: “They make our life easy, in the midfield and the back. They always try to give us the ball in a one-on-one. 

“When we defend well, we had a clean sheet here and a clean sheet there, they make our lives easier to score. We go to the game and just want to score. Once we get the first, we want the second. Once we get the second, we want the third. 

“It’s a top performance from us here and away also, so we’ll hopefully just carry on like this.”
