Earthquakes down FC Dallas for first win since May behind Vako brace

FRISCO, Texas  — Valeri Qazaishvili scored twice and the San Jose Earthquakes snapped a 12-game winless streak with a 3-1 victory over FC Dallas on Saturday night.

Qazaishvili opened the scoring for the Quakes (3-12-7) in the 19th minute, hurdling Jesse Gonzalez after the goalkeeper came off his line but failed to stop Shea Salinas’s long ball. Qazaishvili then outmaneuvered defender Matt Hedges before finishing from near the end line.

Qazaishvili also capped the scoring in the 88th minute with a sliding finish of Chris Wondolowski’s low cross.

Jahmir Hyka gave San Jose a 2-1 lead in the 47th minute, settling Aníbal Godoy’s chip pass and sending a low shot in that slipped under Gonzalez.

Roland Lamah tied it at 1 for Western Conference-leading FC Dallas (12-4-6) with a left-footed stab on Michael Barrios’ cross in the 23rd minute.

Mo Salah injury: Liverpool FC star to miss Manchester United match

Liverpool FC will get one star back Sunday against Manchester United, but another will miss the match entirely. 

Star striker Mohamed Salah was not in Liverpool's matchday squad at Old Trafford after injuring his ankle before the international break. Goalkeeper Alisson Becker, meanwhile, returns to the Reds' starting XI for the first time in two months. 

Salah is tied for 10th in the English Premier League this season with four goals and tied for fourth with three assists. The Egyptian forward has won at least a share of the Golden Boot as the league's top scorer in each of the last two seasons. Salah injured his ankle in Liverpool's final match before the international break after a tackle from Leicester City midfielder Hamza Choudhury.

Becker injured his calf on the opening day of the Premier League season, but Liverpool lost just once in all competitions and managed three clean sheets in his absence.

Still, the Brazilian keeper's return should boost Jurgen Klopp's club as the German manager tries to win at Old Trafford for the first time -- even if the league leaders are at less than full strength up top.

Manchester United-Liverpool FC live stream: Watch Premier League game online

One of the English Premier League's most historic rivalries has a fitting place as the league's only match Sunday.

Manchester United hosts Liverpool FC at Old Trafford, as United looks to place the first blemish on the league-leaders' season. Liverpool is undefeated through eight games and five points clear of second-place Manchester City entering the match. Dating back to last season, the club has won its last 17 Premier League matches. A win Sunday would match City's all-time record. 

United, meanwhile, have floundered early this season. With just four wins in the last 16 league matches under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Man U are desperate to climb back up the table and knock their rivals down a peg in the process.
