Liverpool’s Historic Win Against Man United: Salah’s Legendary Status and Record-Breaking Stats


Liverpool Stuns Manchester United with a 7-0 Victory

On Sunday night, Liverpool delivered a crushing blow to their rivals Manchester United with a 7-0 victory at Anfield. The Red Devils arrived in excellent form, having won the Carabao Cup just seven days earlier and suffering only one defeat in 2023. However, Liverpool’s second-half performance saw them score six times, securing their biggest victory over United in history.

The stunning win saw braces from Cody Gakpo, Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez, and Roberto Firmino’s late strike. This is the first time since 1908 that three Liverpool players have scored at least two goals each in a single game against United. For Salah, it was an historic day as he became Liverpool’s highest-ever goalscorer in the Premier League. His second-half double took his total tally to 129, one ahead of Robbie Fowler in the Premier League.

Salah’s incredible stats do not stop there. He’s the first player in Liverpool’s history to score in six successive matches against United. Only Alan Shearer has scored more times against the Red Devils than the 30-year-old in the Premier League, with Salah’s double taking him to nine goals against them, surpassing Sergio Aguero and Thierry Henry in the process.

Salah also grabbed two assists in a pulsating display from the ex-Chelsea star, becoming the first player in Europe to score 20 and assist ten in all competitions. Liverpool’s domination over United at Anfield is not just contained to this Sunday, with the last eight home games against the club ending 2-0, 0-0, 0-0, 3-1, 2-0, 0-0, 4-0 and 7-0 – 18-1 on aggregate.

Gakpo had his best performance in a Reds shirt while across the season he has been stupendous, including at PSV Eindhoven, and has been directly involved in 25 goals in 22 league games in 2022/23 (13 goals, 12 assists). His strikes against United and Everton make him the first Reds player to do so in home games since Daniel Sturridge in 2013/14.

This was Man United’s worst defeat ever in the Premier League and worst in the league since Boxing Day 1931. The result was a dream day for Jurgen Klopp’s men but for Man United, the inquest has begun and is set to continue for a while yet.
