An incredible statistic has emerged regarding Mohamed Salah and Man Utd this season

Liverpool are flying so far this season.

They were expected to be Manchester City’s main challengers going into the new campaign, and that seems to be the case.

Liverpool have won their opening three games, scoring seven times and conceding none.

They find themselves on top of the Premier League table with a 100% record, joint level with Chelsea and Watford.

Fans of the Merseyside club would be even more pleased with how their start has gone due to the problems suffered by rivals, Manchester United.

Man United seem to be in meltdown just two games into the new season.

Their defence seems to be fragile, while there are also major concerns over their potency in attack.

Man United may have scored four times in their opening two games, but chances have been few and far between for Mourinho’s men.

And a stat has now emerged regarding Mohamed Salah and Mourinho which Liverpool fans will love.

According to ECHO’s chief Liverpool statistician Andrew Beesley, Manchester United have had 25 touches in the penalty area.

Salah, on the other hand, has had 31 – six more than the whole of the United team.

That is just absurd. Man United have the opportunity to overtake that mark when they play against Tottenham on Monday night, but it still reflects very badly on them.

Salah managed to score the only goal of the game against Brighton, and Klopp was happy that Liverpool were able to scrape the win.

“It wasn’t our best performance but it was obviously good enough,” he said, per the Daily Express. “It is quite difficult to create chances against a good, organised side like Brighton.

“We had chances. It was a good game. In the second half, if you don’t decide the game, it is the oldest law of football…

“Brighton is too good and when they made some changes, we lost the plot a little and gave the ball away in absolutely the wrong moments!

“We gave a few percentages back and they nearly used it but for the brilliance of Alisson. The set-pieces they had were always dangerous but we defended them so I’m really fine.

“It is a good day for us because we won this game and it is still special for a Premier League game.”
