Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah scored a brace against Manchester United and followed it by a brutal claim as he said their rivals make their life easier.
The Reds clashed with their arch-rivals yesterday at Anfield in the 32nd round fixture of the Premier League.
The game was one-sided from the get-go, with Salah assisting Luis Diaz to the opening goal only five minutes into the match.
The Egyptian then scored his first goal of the night after a brilliant assist from teammate Sadio Mane for the first 45 minutes to end 2-0.
After the half-time break, Mane added a third goal and Salah completed his brace for Liverpool to come out on top 4-0.
Having scored a hat-trick in the 5-0 win at Old Trafford in October and a brace at Anfield yesterday, Salah became the first player in Premier League history to score five times against United in a single campaign.
He now has 42 goal contributions across all competitions this season as he’s topping both Premier League goal-scoring and assists charts.
Following Liverpool triumph, Salah brutally claimed that Manchester United have made their life easier by putting them in one-on-one situations.
“They make our life easier in the midfield and at the back,” Salah told Sky Sports.
“They always try to give us the ball in a situation like one against one. So they make our life much easier.
“We have a clean sheet here, a clean sheet there [at Old Trafford]. We get to the game and want to score one goal. Once we get the first, we want to get the second, once we get the second we’ll go for a third.
“But I think it’s a top performance from us, here and away. Hopefully, we’ll carry on like this.”
