Liverpool v Man Utd news: Mohammed Salah excited to play against De Gea

  • Liverpool’s Mohammed Salah has scored 32 goals in all competitions for Liverpool this season, 24 in the Premier League.
  • Manchester United are the only top 6 team in the Premier League this season against whom Mohammed Salah is yet to score this season.
  • David De Gea, once again, has been the most influential player for Manchester United this season.

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool travel to Old Trafford to face old rivals Manchester United, which is expected to be a high octane clash between the two most successful clubs in England. Egyptian international Mohammed Salah has been speaking to Sky Sports and revealed his excitement of facing Man Utd’s David De Gea.

Mohammed Salah has 32 goals and 11 assists to his name in all competitions this season, but is yet to score against Man Utd’s David De Gea. Last time the two sides met at Anfield, it ended in a goalless draw, and it’d interesting to see if De Gea can stop Salah from scoring again.

Salah said:” Of course you think about the goalkeeper you are facing before a game. You have to prepare yourself for the game and think about the weakness of the players you are up against.

“But you know when you are up against De Gea and United, he is a great goalkeeper. I have thought already about David and I am very excited to play against him because they are the only team I haven’t scored against in the top six!”

Liverpool v Man Utd news: Mohammed Salah says Jose Mourinho is very smart

The 25-year-old played under Jose Mourinho at Chelsea, but managed only a handful of games before leaving for Italy.

Salah believes the Manchester United boss is ‘very smart’, but three points is all that matters for him on Saturday at Old Trafford.

Salah added:”He sometimes plays two No 6s rather than one. He is very smart, very smart. I worked with him for one year and know how he works. For me, the game is like any other game, we need to win it, get the three points.”

Manchester United currently enjoy a two-point lead in the Premier League over Liverpool, but their Merseyside rivals are in fine form and never shy of scoring fews goals.
