Liverpool hero Mohamed Salah gives verdict on “special” win against Manchester United
Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah talks about the win vs Manchester United
Liverpool Football Club enjoyed one of their greatest victories in recent history, as they thumped their bitter rivals Manchester United 7-0 at Anfield on March 6th, 2023. The Reds certainly put on a masterclass performance that saw them record their highest-ever margin of victory over United with Mohamed Salah reaching a special feat.
Two goals each from Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez, and Salah, as well as Roberto Firmino’s late strike, saw Liverpool dominate the match from start to finish. Three well-deserved and important points for the Reds as they would want to shift their focus to the next game, but only after enjoying the sweet victory against a United side, probably in their best form since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson.
However, the biggest highlight of the match was undoubtedly the performance of Liverpool’s talisman, Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian forward scored two goals in the game, the second of which helped him break Liverpool’s all-time record for the most Premier League goals. Salah’s brace saw him surpass the legendary Robbie Fowler’s record of 128 goals in the competition, cementing his place as a Liverpool great.
Speaking of the win, here is what our record goalscorer had to say to Sky Sports via BBC:
“It is very special to win a game like that. We need to stay humble and win our games. Hopefully it will give us a big push.”
Long way to go to the end of the campaign
His quotes just embody Salah perfectly. Even after the huge win, the calls for needing to stay humble is something only a few players might say. The win was a reminder to their rivals that they are still a force to be reckoned with, and that they have the firepower to blow away any team on their day.
However, the season is long and arduous, and there are many tough fixtures ahead that the Reds must navigate. They will face other top teams, including Manchester City, Arsenal, and Tottenham, and will need to put in consistent performances to secure the points they need.
Other fixtures in the Premier League and the Champions League match against Real Madrid will also be a huge challenge for the Reds. The squad will be stretched to its limits, and injuries and fatigue will be a major concern for the team. In conclusion, Liverpool’s victory over United was a massive boost for the team, but the season is far from over.
