Peter Drury poem on Mo Salah hatrick at Old Trafford against Manchester United

2 min read

English Premier League commentator Peter Drury has once again hit the twitter trends with his magical voice as Liverpool crueless Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Here is every word altered by the veteran journalist as Mohamed Salah sealed the record of the greatest African to ever play in the English Premier League.

“Henderson nicks it. Jota’s one way, Salah’s the other. He’s on an Old Trafford hat-trick here Mo Salah…and he captures the moment! “The man is extraordinary. The match is extraordinary. The score line is extraordinary. That picture will be framed and kept forever by Liverpool fans all over the worl.”

“Another Mo Salah hat-trick and this one – THIS one – at the expense of Manchester United at Manchester United.”

Moments later, after the score clicked to 5-0 in the top left corner of the screen, he added: “Do not adjust your set.

“That is not a graphical error. The scoreline really is Manchester United nil, Liverpool five.”

And summing up after the final whistle, Drury said: “A scoreline for a generation. A scoreline for a lifetime.

“For the history of English football, a scoreline which will echo down the ages. Mo Salah scored a hat-trick, his day. Ole Solskjaer has it to drink in. Has it somehow to interpret. Has it somehow to react to. His job feels impossible.

“This for Manchester United was impossibly bad.”

The result leaves Liverpool second in the table, one point behind Chelsea, while United are left with questions over the future of Solskjaer and where to go from here.
