Another record-breaking night for Mo Salah after his header at Old Trafford last Monday.
Liverpool‘s unbeaten 21-game run came to an end last Monday at Old Trafford. The visitors were not at their best and couldn’t convert the chances again this week. The Reds lost their first Premier League game against Manchester United since 2018.
Liverpool lost the game 2 – 1 at Old Trafford and are currently in 16th place after two draws and a defeat in the first three games. Moreover, Salah’s header gave hope to Liverpool as they were trying to repeat a comeback, for the third time after going two goals down before the hour mark.
Meanwhile, Liverpool have now conceded a goal in the first half of every single game this season and they never lead in a single match on goals this season. Moreover, this was the third combination of centre-backs Klopp has used in the first three matches due to injuries.
Salah climbs up the ladder in record books after scoring a header past De Gea at Old Trafford. It was the Egyptian’s third goal of the season, and it moved him up the club’s all-time scoring list.
With 159 goals in all competitions since joining from AS Roma, Salah has now moved ahead of Owen into eighth place and is only 13 goals behind Kenny Dalglish in seventh.

The two-time Golden Boot winner Mohammad Salah has scored 122 goals in his career in England for Liverpool and Chelsea. Making him the first African to score the most goals in Premier League history.
Meanwhile, Mo has also scored 2 goals while wearing the blue kit with Chelsea. Thus, Salah has 122 goals in the Premier League i.e. two more than Gerrard. Moreover, Salah is only 28 goals off the all-time top 10 in the Premier league.
When it comes to goals against United, Salah is now Liverpool’s outright leading goalscorer, with his header the 10th he has scored in meetings with the Manchester club.
He had been level terms with Gerrard on nine, but his record now stands at 10 goals in 11 appearances after his header in the last game. The forward is also only the second Liverpool player in history to score in four successive league games against United. And thus, we call him the ‘Egyptian King’.
