Egyptian international Mohamed Salah scored a historic “hat-trick” to lead Liverpool to a big 5-0 victory over its eternal rival Manchester United in its stronghold, “Old Trafford” in the ninth stage of the English Premier League, Sunday, to put the fate of Norwegian coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on the line. It is close to dismissal.
Salah became the first player ever in the history of the Premier League to score a hat-trick at Old Trafford and the first player in Liverpool’s history to score in three consecutive games away from home against United.
The guests made a fiery start to open the scoring in the fifth minute through Guinean Naby Keita, and the Portuguese Diogo Jota added the second (13), before Salah scored his hat-trick (38, 45 + 5 and 50). And the suffering of the owners of the land increased after they fought the last half hour with ten players to expel French substitute Paul Pogba.
