Ole Gunnar Solskjaer The Manchester United manager said he would always prefer Cristiano Ronaldo to score goals but conceded on Friday that Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is in the form of his life ahead of Sunday's Premier League derby at Old Trafford.
"I'll always back Cristiano in any competition, he's unique and his goals scoring record is fantastic but that being said, Salah is on fire," Solskjaer told reporters.
Salah leads the Premier League goal scoring charts with seven goals and also has four assists in eight games while he also has five strikes in the Champions League.
Juergen Klopp Liverpool manager, did not want to compare the two forwards earlier on Friday but Solskjaer praised Salah and also his team mates on the frontline - Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota.
Liverpool are the only unbeaten team in the league this season and have scored at least three goals in each of their last eight away games in all competitions.
"They're on a great run of form, some individual skills that you cannot almost defend against but as a team, we have to be compact and aggressive," Solskjaer added.
