Mohamed Salah puts pressure on Man Utd as Reds win sixth in a row


Liverpool moved to within a point of fourth-placed Manchester United as Mohamed Salah's 30th goal of the season sealed a 1-0 win over Brentford.

Salah's 13th-minute opener from close-range brought him level with Steven Gerrard on 186 goals as Liverpool's joint fifth-highest goalscorer after a bright start from the hosts at Anfield, where the pre-match rendition of the national anthem was drowned out on the day of King Charles' coronation.

"For us, it's clear, [Salah] is an all-time great," Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp told Sky Sports. "The numbers are outrageous."

Liverpool were able to hold on for just their second clean sheet in seven games to extend their winning run to six and pile the pressure on their stuttering rivals Man Utd - who have two games in hand on the Reds - ahead of their trip to West Ham on Sunday evening.
