"I meant our midfield, and our defence, make it easy for us. I was not talking about the Manchester United players whom I respect," Salah, who scored a double in Liverpool's rout of their old rivals, tweeted.

In the video that Salah posted, a Sky Sports reporter asks him: "Why did you dominate the rivalry against Manchester United this season?"

"I think they make our life easier, in the midfield and in the back, they are always try to give us the ball just in a situation like one against one, so they make our life much easier," Salah replies.

"I think when we defend well, we had a clean sheet here and a clean sheet there, so they make our life easier to score. We just go to the game and we want to score one goal, once we got the first goal we want to score the second, then we go for a third.

"It's a top performance from us here and away also, we hopefully just carry on like this."

Salah, who netted a hat-trick in the reverse fixture at the Old Trafford, ended a six-match goal drought in all competitions in style, hitting a brace and providing an assist as Liverpool crushed Man United again.

He took his tally to 22 goals on top of the Premier League's scoring chart, five clear of Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min.

The 29-year-old also became the first player to score five goals against Man United in a single Premier League campaign.

"If the team is not winning I won't be happy, but if the team's winning everything is going to come, so I was not worry about that," Salah added in his interview with Sky Sports.

"I said before in many times I score 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."
