Man United vs Liverpool: Salah becomes highest-scoring African in EPL

Mohamed Salah hailed a “big win” for Liverpool as the Egyptian forward’s hat-trick inspired a 5-0 victory against humiliated Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.

This is as Salah is the first away player to score a treble at Old Trafford since Brazil legend Ronaldo in 2003.

He also surpassed Didier Drogba to become Africa’s all-time leading scorer in the Premier League with 106 goals.

The 29-year-old has now scored in 10 successive games in all competitions, while Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 22 games in all competitions.

Jurgen Klopp’s side ran riot in the 202nd meeting of English football’s biggest rivals.

Naby Keita and Diogo Jota put Liverpool two goals ahead early on before Salah turned on the style with his treble.

United played most of the second half with 10 men after Paul Pogba was sent off in a chastening afternoon for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team.

It was Liverpool’s biggest ever win at Old Trafford and their largest success against their old foes at any venue since 1925.
