Salah makes HISTORY with record-breaking Old Trafford goal

Mohamed Salah made more history for Liverpool on Sunday when he scored against Manchester United at Old Trafford. 

In netting the goal which made it 2-1 for the Reds in their FA Cup quarter-final showdown at the home of their fiercest rivals, the Egyptian forward scored in his fifth successive away game at Old Trafford, setting a new record. 

Capitalising on a rebound after Andre Onana made a save from Darwin Nunez, Salah stabbed home with his right foot to give Liverpool their go-ahead goal. 

United opened the scoring through Scott McTominay before Alexis Mac Allister struck the equaliser for the 2022 FA Cup winners with Salah’s goal in first-half injury time giving his side the lead. 

The 31-year-old began his goalscoring sequence with a two-goal salvo against United in the fourth round of the FA Cup back in the 2020-21 season. 

His two goals in that behind-closed-doors affair were not enough for Liverpool as United struck three in reply to take the win. 

Salah then scored on the 34th matchday of the 2020-21 Premier League season in a 4-2 win at Old Trafford with Roberto Firmino scoring twice and Diogo Jota adding another. 

He scored a famous hat-trick in a 5-0 Premier League win in October 2021 with Jota and Naby Keita completing the rout. It was the first away hat-trick at the ground since Ronaldo in the Champions League in 2003.  

Most recently, he scored Liverpool’s only goal in a 2-1 defeat on the third matchday of the 2022-23 campaign. 

In total Salah has now scored 13 goals in 14 games against United in all competitions, adding four assists, meaning the side coached by Erik ten Hag are his favourite prey. 

The striker recently moved past 200 goals for the Reds and is their most prolific scorer of modern times. 

Salah is under contract at Anfield until 2025 and has been most recently linked with a record-breaking switch to the Saudi Pro League. 

He has recently returned from a hamstring injury which ruined his Africa Cup of Nations and restricted him to only a couple of substitute appearance for his club across a near two-month stretch of games.
