Egypt international Mohamed Salah says he wants to complete his record of scoring against all the top six sides in the English Premier League this season when he faces Manchester United on Saturday.

The in-form Liverpool FC winger has netted against Manchester City, Tottenham Hotpsur, Chelsea and Arsenal, with United the only side missing in the top-six list. The two English giants will lock horns at the Old Trafford Stadium.

The first round league encounter between Liverpool and United ended in a goalless at the Anfield Stadium last October. United goalkeeper David De Gea produced a brilliant save to deny Liverpool's Joel Matip.

"I remember it [De Gea's save]. I also missed an easy chance in that game, but he is great," Salah told Sky Sports.

"Before the game you have to prepare yourself for the game, 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.

"But we know we play against Manchester [United] and De Gea. He is a great goalkeeper and this is the only team I did not score against in the top six this season, so I will try," he continued.

"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 25-year-old is the league's joint-top scorer alongside Harry Kane of Tottenham with 24 goals.
