Mohamed Salah gives shirt to young fan in lovely embrace after Sheffield United 0-1 Liverpool

Mohamed Salah

Liverpool extended their 100% start to the Premier League season on Saturday but they had to work very hard for their 1-0 win at Sheffield United.

The hosts matched Liverpool's intensity for large proportions of the contest, however the Reds dominated possession and found the key breakthrough - albeit in lucky circumstances.

With 20 minutes to go, Georginio Wijnaldum's volley from the edge of the box was spilled by Dean Henderson (on loan from Manchester United) and the ball trickled over the line.

Manchester City's 3-1 win over Everton later in the day means the gap remains at five points, but Liverpool are in a great position as they aim to win their first-ever Premier League title.

Jurgen Klopp's men received fabulous support from their travelling fans at Bramall Lane, and at full-time, Mohamed Salah absolutely made one young child's day.

Despite not scoring, Salah looked quite dangerous in the moments he came into the game and saw a one-on-one effort brilliantly saved by Henderson's right foot.

Shortly after referee Anthony Taylor blew the final whistle, one young Liverpool supporter from the away end ran onto the pitch with the hope of getting the shirt Salah wore in the 1-0 win.

Once the 27-year-old forward noticed the youngster, he shook his hand, gave him a hug as well as his shirt, much to the child's delight, who ran off with his arms out wide in celebration.

Check out the video and some images of the heart-warming embrace below:

The pure joy on the fan's face as he posed for a picture with Mo Salah's jersey just epitomises how lovely the beautiful game can truly be at times - so fair play to the Egyptian.

After making memories which one supporter will remember for a lifetime, Salah's attention now turns to Wednesday's Champions League tie against Red Bull Salzburg.
