Mohamed Salah has a chance to fix his terrible record against Manchester United on Sunday.

Liverpool travel to Old Trafford this weekend with the aim of maintaining their 100% star to the Premier League.

To do that, though, they will need to win on a ground they have struggled on in recent years.

And nothing quite shows the struggles there than the fact that Salah has never scored at Old Trafford. In fact, he’s never scored against United.

 

For a player with his record – and two Golden Boots – it’s a remarkable stat. Salah scores against everyone else, after all, and it’s not like United have been good in recent years.

But he won’t get a better chance to correct things than on Sunday. United are in terrible form, sitting in 12th and far closer to the bottom than the top. They’re six points above bottom but they’d have to double their points tally just to be that far from 1st.

They’re not a good side and it’s doubtful they’ll keep up with Liverpool as a whole. A fully-firing Salah would surely find the back of the net and end his strange drought.

The only real question remaining is whether he starts or not. Salah picked up an injury against Leicester City and there’s a strong argument that he shouldn’t play.

But if he does, it’s surely time he ended his hoodoo against Liverpool’s arch-rivals.
