Virgil Van Dijk urges Liverpool to maintain their high standards

Virgil Van Dijk urges Liverpool to maintain their high standards

Salah helped Liverpool to a vital 3-1 victory over Manchester United in their latest Premier League outing, allowing them to stretch an unbeaten record and return to the top of the table.

Sadio Mane put Liverpool in front on the afternoon with an unerring touch and finish from Fabinho's pass but Jesse Lingard levelled for the visitors within nine minutes.

"It was a lovely feeling to score two goals against Manchester United, an important game against a big rival for Liverpool, and to score in front of the Kop again was good".

Alisson's blushes were ultimately saved over the weekend as Liverpool netted twice in the second-half courtesy of super-sub Xherdan Shaqiri, who bagged a brace. We played very well. We created many chances.

But a run that saw Salah only score three goals in his first eight games at the start of this year's campaign led to critics questioning whether he could perform as consistently as last season.

"We dominated the game and we deserved it", the Liverpool captain said.

He'll continue that for Monday night's game against the New Orleans Saints. "That has to be statistically impossible". When asked if the drug tests would become part of his collusion grievance, Reid replied "Duly noted".

"When you see the statistics, we did everything in this game to win".

"The price for him was very high, and I'll never forget the role he played in my career".

"There is no doubt that some of these Manchester United defenders are capable but they need that figurehead, that leader who could guide them". We were prepared and we knew about their strengths.

"I hope we can have a lot of games like this and try to win a lot of games".

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is "more excited and determined" to succeed this season after establishing a reputation as one of the best players in the world.

Gary Neville hinted at United's problems in recruiting top talent on Sky Sports, saying: 'If you're coming in as a manager of Manchester United and you're a big manager coming in, you would look obviously in the dressing room but you'd also sort out above you. "He has been fantastic all season and a real threat for us and his stats this season are very good, so long may that continue".
