Mohamed Salah completely confused Lisandro Martinez before scoring for Liverpool against Manchester United.
The Egyptian striker fueled the Red Brigade and scored twice in a 7-0 victory. He also played a key role in two other goals, brilliantly passing the ball to Cody Gakpo to put the game under Liverpool ‘s control early in the second half.
But before the pass, he faced Martinez and Salah humiliated the World Cup champion as he fell limply on the pitch.
Salah pretended to cut in before immediately continuing down the right flank, spinning Martinez, who didn’t know how to stop the Liverpool winger.
He was so disoriented that he lost his balance and fell to the ground, giving Salah time to pass the ball to Gakpo to score.
The 30-year-old was awarded the man of the match award for his performance. He produced two assists to go along with his two goals, culminating in Roberto Firmino’s 88th-minute strike to end the famous win at Anfield.
Fans marveled at Salah’s skill but many also used the incident as an opportunity to mock Martinez.
One fan said: “Send him back to Ajax”. Another added: “Legend has it that Martinez is still reeling.”
The third said: “He was turned by Salah like a pinwheel.” And another commented: “I didn’t expect it to happen to Martinez but Salah really ruined him there.”
Salah turns Lisandro Martinez into a ‘child’, going down in Liverpool history
In the match between Liverpool and MU, Mohamed Salah became a real nightmare for the visitors when he scored a double and assisted.
In the 2022/23 season, Salah was not in his best form and Liverpool also played quite poorly. But when facing Man United, they were extremely sublimated.
And the most excited person is probably Salah. The Egyptian striker had 1 double goal and 1 more assist to help The Kop win with a score of 7-0.
With 2 goals in this match, Salah officially surpassed Robbie Fowler to become the highest scorer in Liverpool history in the Premier League arena. He has scored 129 goals in just 205 appearances.
This is also Salah’s 12th goal against Man United in the English Premier League. The Egyptian striker became the first Liverpool player to score in six consecutive matches against the Red Devils in all competitions.
Salah is also the first player in Europe’s top 5 leagues to have over 20 goals and over 10 assists in all competitions in the 2022/23 season.
It is noteworthy that in this match, Salah turned MU’s steel defender Lisandro Martinez into a mediocre man.
In addition to scoring 2 goals for the Red Devils against Martinez’s inability, he also had a direct confrontation and caused the opponent to fall because of his dribbling technique before passing Gakpo to score.
Indeed, Salah is an individual nightmare for Lisandro Martinez as well as for Man United.
