Salah Equals Brazil Legend Ronaldo’s Old Trafford Feat As Liverpool Destroy Man United

Mohamed Salah’s quickfire hat-trick, which followed early strikes from Naby Keita and Diogo Jota, saw Liverpool hammer bitter rivals Manchester United 5-0 at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Salah is now the first away player to score a hat-trick at Old Trafford for over 18 years, since Brazil legend Ronaldo did so for Real Madrid in April 2003 in the Champions League.


The win marks just the second time Liverpool have scored five at Old Trafford, following a 5-2 success way back in 1936, and moves Jürgen Klopp’s unbeaten side up to second in the table.

Liverpool took the lead off a sweeping move from back to front that began with Alisson and was concluded by Naby Keita who latched on to Salah’s pass after breaking forward from midfield and side-footed a low finish beyond David de Gea.


The Reds double their advantage with 13 minutes on the clock as Keita’s proactivity forced another turnover deep in United territory, with the midfielder duly slipping in Trent Alexander-Arnold, whose low delivery was slid home by Diogo Jota.

Salah stretched his remarkable scoring streak to 10 consecutive fixtures by slamming in Keita’s cross from close range, and he then made it 4-0 in first-half stoppage time by converting Jota’s pass in trademark style via a clinical first-time finish.

It took just four minutes of the second period for Salah to complete his hat-trick.

Jordan Henderson produced a gorgeous, outside-of-the-boot throughball that Salah raced on to prior to clipping a lovely, dinked effort over De Gea.

United were denied what would surely been a mere consolation soon after when Cristiano Ronaldo had a goal disallowed for offside following a VAR review and the hosts’ misery was compounded further as Pogba was dismissed for a bad tackle on Keita.

    But on a more serious note guys don’t you think Ronaldo’s second coming made United weaker instead of stronger? I mean as if the team is modelled around him. Unlike then everyone doing his thing. Nobody looking up to another to save the team..

    Manchester need an able coach. Their present coach is not capable at all. He doesn’t understand how to read a match and spy suitable strategy.

    This was the song Liverpool fans were singing at Old Trafford.
    Under Solksjaer, Man United have no identity, no clue, and no chance – Manchester Evening News.
    A day of humiliation and destruction.
    It will be a miracle of sorts if Solksjaer survives this episode and is allowed to continue at the helm.
    Solksjaer needs to go. For the sake of the club, for the sake of the fans, for the sake of his own mental and physical health. He was always a stop-gap, a coach that was meant to fill in until the real deal was hired. Today, face to face with an elite opponent in Jurgen Klopp, the student got schooled by the master.
    But he must not go alone. Others must also follow him out immediately.
    Man United have no quality midfield players at the moment. Matic’s best days are behind him. Fred and McTominay are jokes. Pogba is not serious or committed in the Man United jersey. He saves his best for France.
    Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire were awful today. Yet, these two are Man United’s best defenders. Varane has not quite hit the highs he had at Real Madrid. Wan Bissaka blows hot and cold. The rest are hapless mediocres.
    January is almost here. Time for Man United to whip out the checkbook and start some serious coach and player shopping!
