Liverpool ace Mohamed Salah fires warning to team-mates after ‘really big’ 5-0 Man Utd win | Football | Sport
Mohamed Salah has warned his Liverpool team-mates not to get carried away despite hammering Manchester United 5-0 at Old Trafford on Sunday evening. The Egyptian scored a hat-trick as the Reds ran rio against their bitter rivals.
Liverpool recorded their biggest ever away win against United and found themselves 4-0 to the good by half-time thanks to goals from Naby Keita and Diogo Jota and a Salah brace.
After the break, Salah made it 5-0 before Paul Pogba was sent off just 15 minutes after coming on for a challenge which saw Keita stretchered off injured.
Liverpool failed to add to their advantage but still dealt a heavy blow to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United while moving a point off of Chelsea at the summit of the Premier League table.
The English top-flight’s highest-scoring team responded perfectly to Chelsea’s 7-0 demolition of Norwich and Manchester City’s 4-1 win at Brighton.
But Salah, who has scored in 10 successive matches across all competitions, does not want his Liverpool team-mates to get carried away with their win, insisting it is only another three points.
He told Sky Sports: “I think it’s great to win 5-0 here away, we knew before the game it was going to be tough if we didn’t play our football, we managed to do that from the beginning so it made the game easier.
“We knew they would come and try to give everything to win the game, so we had to give 100 per cent and dominate the game, I think we did it.
“As a team from the beginning we just tried to play our football, just tried to get the ball between the lines, I think we did that, to keep the ball as long as we could and create chances.
“We won the Premier League two years ago, we know what it takes. You win away against Man United it’s something really big but still at the end of the day it’s three points.
“We need to focus on our games to come and the Premier League next game.
“From the beginning of the season we tried to win each game and play for the title. A team like Liverpool, players like that and manager like that they play for everything, to win everything.
“Now it doesn’t matter if beginning is over or not, from the beginning the manager told us we need to win the Premier League, hopefully we go for that.”
