Mo Salah ends thing in style as Liverpool knocks off Manchester United at Anfield
The Egyptian King has done it again for Liverpool! Mo Salah has been in fine form once again this season, and entered Sunday hoping to deliver a punch in the mouth to Manchester United.
Well, Salah did just that, as he scored in stoppage time against Liverpool's most-hated rival, sealing the deal in a 2-0 victory for the Reds.
United was in desperation mode to try and even things up before the final whistle, but a brilliant play by Salah in the 93rd minute put an end to any chance of a 1-1 draw.
Take a look for yourself, as Salah showcased his outstanding speed and finishing abilities to get the ball past a diving David de Gea.

That was Salah's first goal against Manchester United. You better believe he won't be forgetting that one anytime soon.
We'd be remiss to not mention Virgil van Dijk, as the superstar defender put Liverpool up early in the first half with a header past de Gea.
With Anfield rocking, Liverpool dominated at the start of the second half too, but failed to find another goal. United had opportunities to tie things up, but it was clear they missed Marcus Rashford more than ever, as the striker was sidelined due to a back injury.
Nerves were high late for the Liverpool fans, but Salah ended things in style with his classy finish. Another night to remember for the best team in the English Premier League.
