Liverpool's Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah says he is motivated and well prepared for the upcoming Manchester United game.

"Before the game you have to prepare yourself, and you see the weakness of the players or the goalkeeper, and you have to try many times to break that and to score and to do something different," Salah told Sky Sports.

Liverpool, who are third in the league table with 60 points, are set to face second-placed Manchester United on Saturday in the English Premier League.

"We know we play against Manchester [United] and [David] De Gea, he is a great goalkeeper,"

"I try to look for a goal in any game I play. I thought already about that and I'm very excited to play in that game because this is the only team in the top six I didn't score against. Only Manchester [United]." the Egypt ace said.

The 25-year-old, who joined Liverpool last summer from Serie A side Roma, has taken the Premier League by storm this season, scoring 24 goals to take his overall tally to 32 goals in 39 appearances in all competitions.

Salah shares the Premier League's top scorer position with Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.
