Salah, Mane And Firmino Have Scored Just THREE Goals Between Them Against Manchester United

Liverpool's front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have scored a measly three goals between them against Manchester United.

Each of Liverpool's forwards have scored just once against United in a combined 29 appearances in all competitions.

A worrying figure for Jurgen Klopp who once again prepares his team against their old rivals with a FA Cup meeting slated for Sunday.

Salah's only strike against United came last season when he bagged a late goal in his side's 2-0 league victory.

Mane popped up in December 2018, again a league clash, as he opened the scoring in a 3-1 win at Anfield.

Firmino netted his goal during a Europa League fixture, scoring Liverpool's second goal in a 2-0 victory.

Those goals remain their only success against United as they failed to deliver last night.

Liverpool have now gone three league matches without a goal for the first time in almost 16 years.

And Klopp can't put his finger on why his side are going through a goal draught.

Speaking after the game, he said: "There is no easy explanation [for their recent lack of goals]. You always miss chances.

"You have to keep going and try to ignore the talk around it. Everyone wants to see goals. You cannot force it.

"It's football. These moments happen. You have moments where you can't explain why you score from all angles. Against Crystal Palace everything ended up in the net. It's a bit annoying in between these moments.

"I like the game. I saw a lot of really good individual performances and the team performance was good. Not the result we wanted, but the result we got."

Liverpool, who occupy fourth place in the table, resume their league campaign against Burnley on Thursday.
