Scott McTominay opened the scoring for United in the tenth minute but Liverpool sealed their turnaround on the stroke of half-time.

Alexis Mac Allister saw his effort go in via a deflection before Salah put them ahead when he scored from close-range.

The finish has seen him achieve a remarkable world first, with the Egyptian star continuing to love matches against United.

Salah is the first ever player to score a goal in five consecutive away matches at Old Trafford.

He netted in their Premier League and FA Cup fourth round trips during the 2020/21 season, winning the former and losing the latter.

The 31-year-old scored a hat-trick in the following campaign in their memorable 5-0 win and netted once in a 2-1 defeat last August.

Salah’s goal was his 13th in all competitions against United, with all of those coming across 14 appearances against the club.

It also came just days after he scored his 20th goal of the season for Liverpool for the seventh consecutive campaign in their Europa League thrashing against Sparta Prague.

Salah now sits on 21 goals for the season in 32 appearances, a tally that will surely increase even further in the final weeks.

He was replaced by Cody Gakpo in the 77th minute, with Jurgen Klopp believing he saw enough from his talisman.

Liverpool were unable to hold onto their lead though as substitute Antony scored on 87 minutes to make it 2-2 and send the tie to extra time.

United had been second best for much of the tie but they still found a way to draw level.

Liverpool went back in front in extra-time as Harvey Elliott’s strike deflected into the bottom corner.

But Marcus Rashford’s low finish ensured United went level and Amad Diallo made it 4-3 late on to seal a stunning comeback win.
