Post-match, the Egyptian spoke to Sky Sports – read a summary of his interview below…

On scoring five goals against United this season, with nine overall for the team…

The midfield and [defence] make our life easier, they always try to give us the ball in a situation one against one. So they make our life much easier. We had a clean sheet here, clean sheet there, so they make our life easier to score. We want to score one goal; once we get the first we want to get the second; once we get the second we go for a third. I think it’s a top performance from us here and away also. Hopefully we just carry on like this.

On being back among the goals tonight…

I said before many times, I scored many goals for this club, it’s going to keep coming. Sometimes you have bad luck but the most important thing is the team winning. If the team was not winning I would not be happy. But [when] the team is winning, everything is going to come, so I was not worried.

On Liverpool’s forward options…

We all play very well in the front three, when Bobby comes in also he plays very well. We just try to adapt to each other in training. We know each other more now; me and Sadio and Bobby especially because we played four or five years together. Great ball from Sadio [for Salah’s first goal]. He is now playing No.9 more, he is doing an unbelievable job and scoring goals as well. Everybody playing up front is just playing a good game. The most important thing is the team is winning games.

On being top of the Premier League table…

It’s great, let’s wait until tomorrow – because City are not an easy team to lose points. We just need to focus on ourselves, the rest is not in our hands. The only thing we can focus on is our games and we’ll see.
