Youngster, Kobbie Mainoo, then put the Red Devils in front and Erik ten Hag's charges looked on course to cart home all three points, only for Aaron Wan-Bissaka to concede a penalty deep in the second half.

Salah stepped up to convert the penalty in the 84th minute to make it 2-2, also ensuring both teams shared the spoils.

Salah breaks three records at Old Trafford

According to SPORTbible, Salah's strike from the penalty spot saw him set three records at the Theatre of Dreams.

With 11 goals, the Egypt national has scored the most goals against Manchester United by any player in the history of the Premier League, overtaking Alan Shearer's tally of 10.

The forward has now also gone past Steven Gerrard, who held a milestone for scoring five goals as a visiting player at Old Trafford.

Salah further set himself as the first player to find the net in four consecutive away games against Manchester United.

Meanwhile, the Reds now sit in second position with 71 points following their draw at Old Trafford, while ten Hag's men are in sixth place with 49 points.

Liverpool would be ruing the stalemate, as it may have taken the Premier League title race out of their control.

Salah hails Lionel Messi

Sports Brief earlier reported on Salah praising Inter Miami's Lionel Messi when asked to name his favourite Argentine.

He also mentioned his Liverpool teammate, Alexis Mac Allister, and legendary La Albiceleste striker, Gabriel Batistuta.

Salah has been previously likened to Messi due to the similarities in their style of play and both have set milestones.
