Mohamed Salah and Liverpool hoped that Frank Lampard's Chelsea would do them big favours against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Mohamed Salah is not a happy man after it was confirmed he will play in the Europa League next season at Liverpool.

Salah is devastated after Liverpool missed out on a top four finish in the Premier League and a place in the Champions League for the first time since the 2015/2016 season.
