Mohamed Salah has moved to clarify comments he made following Liverpool’s 4-0 win over Manchester United.
Speaking following his side’s victory at Anfield, Salah gave his thoughts on his side’s dominance over United this season. Liverpool have beaten United 9-0 across two Premier League fixtures.
Luis Diaz fired Jurgen Klopp’s side ahead before Salah made it 2-0 just before half-time. Sadio Mane then added a third before Salah struck again five minutes from time.

And speaking post-match, Salah was accused of taking aim at United’s midfield by claiming they made it easy for the Reds during the game.
“In midfield, they make our life easier. We have a clean sheet here and there,” he told Sky Sports. “Once we get the first goal, we want the second and the third. It was a top performance by us and hopefully , we continue. “
However, the Egyptian has now moved to clarify the comments he made, claiming that he was referring to Liverpool’s midfield and not United’s.
“I meant our midfield, and our defense, make it easy for us. I was not talking about the Manchester United players whom I respect, ”he wrote on Twitter.
Thiago Alcantara also spoke to Sky Sports following Liverpool’s victory, saying: “When we have these attackers in front of us and you see not only how they score but in defensive situations, they want to get involved. It makes us perform.
“I can not be the one to judge my performance. It is one of the strongest performances at Anfield. We are not worried about where the goals come from. We are happy with all the strikers and how we play. “
