Records galore were broken once again by Mohamed Salah after a 2-4 victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford. It was Liverpool's first win away to their rivals in seven years and Jurgen Klopp's first victory at Old Trafford since he arrived at Anfield.

It was Mohamed Salah who drew the most attention again as he scored his 21st league goal of the season and his 30th in all competitions. His goal against United puts him level with Harry Kane in the race for the Premier League golden boot.

The Egyptian forwards' habit of breaking records at Liverpool continued, as he became the first Reds player in 100 years to score on two separate occasions at Old Trafford in the same season. Salah also scored a brace away to United in the FA Cup earlier in the season.

Liverpool's star player this season also added more personal accolades to his CV as he made his 200th appearance for the Reds and overtook Nigerian legend Yakubu as the third highest African goalscorer in the history of England's top division.

Salah has 96 Premier League goals, just eight behind Didier Drogba whose 104 goals makes him the league's top scoring African player.

The 28 year-old recently stated that he has yet to enter new contract talks with Liverpool, but has expressed his desire to remain at Merseyside in the future.

The winger has been instrumental in Liverpool's season despite the Reds form declining compared to last year. The win at Old Trafford gives Liverpool some hope of top four and Mohamed Salah's goal celebration shows the Egyptians passion for the club and the Reds hunger to secure Champions League qualification.
