scored a record-breaking during Liverpool’s epic clash against at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Liverpool’s dream of winning a ‘quadruple’ came to an end at the hands of arch-rivals United who won 4-3 with Amad Diallo scoring the winner in the 121st minute.

opened the scoring for the unfancied United before Alexis Mac Allister and Salah scored just before the break to give the visitors the lead.

Antony fired in only his second goal of the season late on to send the match to extra-time, where Harvey Elliott and Marcus Rashford both found the back of the net to keep the tie level.

Penalties were on the horizon before, from Liverpool’s corner, Diallo raced up the pitch to fire past Caoimhin Kelleher, though he was shown a second yellow card for taking his shirt off while celebrating.

But it was Salah’s strike in the second minute of first-half injury time that will go down in the record books.

It meant that the Egyptian King became the first away player in history to score in five consecutive matches at Old Trafford.

The run started in January 2021 when the winner scored in a 3-2 defeat in the FA Cup fourth round, and continued later that season in the 4-2 Premier League win.

Salah would bag a hattrick in the 5-0 demolition in October 2021 before scoring again in the 2-1 defeat in August 2022 – Erik ten Hag’s first win as United manager.

His fifth came on Sunday, his 13th in 14 appearances against the Red Devils, making him the leading scoring in this fixture.

But this will be little consolation to Salah and Liverpool, with manager Jurgen Klopp telling ITV post-match: ‘We did not have a good start but we adapted really well and played a top game.

‘At 2-1 up we had so many chances to kill the game off, we were in a rush in some moments and the rest is already history. We were nearly there in extra time and in the end we lose the game. I cannot ask the boys for more.

‘We had an intense season so far, you just have to count the games and today was hard. United took a lot of risks, I absolutely respect that.

‘The decision making doesn’t get better the longer the game goes on. Congratulations to United for going to the semi-final.’
