Salah: Liverpool aim to win the league despite pressure
Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has spoken ahead of his side’s big match in the English Premier League’s 27th round against Manchester United, saying that they are obliged to win every game in order to achieve the title.
Liverpool have the chance to go three points clear off Manchester City on the top of the table when they face United at Old Trafford on February 24.
“We certainly want to win the league. We haven’t won the title for 27 years, everyone is focused on winning the year and the global media is saying ‘this is Liverpool’s year’,” Salah told beIN Sports.
“This exerts some pressure but at the end you need to win every game to succeed in winning the league. Man United won their last 10-11 games and it’s a great thing for them that restored their confidence and they came back in a good position in the league.”
“They [Man United] are confident right now and everyone knows how much they want to beat Liverpool to stop them from winning the trophy, but ultimately we want to clinch victory, that’s all I can say.”
Jurgen Klopp’s men had ended their first leg tie against Bayern Munich in the Champions League round of 16 with a disappointing draw to leave everything to be played at Allianz Arena in March.
