Salah Talks EPL Title Race, Comments On Man United Rivalry

Two-time African Player of the Year superstar Mohamed Salah has opened up about ending Liverpool's Premier League trophy drought, in addition to commenting on the rivalry with Manchester United.
 
 
Jurgen Klopp's side do duty against the Red Devils in a blockbuster league encounter on Sunday, which could have resounding effects on the complexion of the title race. 
 
With Manchester City having leapfrogged the Reds to the summit of the table, the onus will be on Liverpool to maintain a winning streak in a bid to clinch their first top-flight title since 1990.
 
Despite having a game in hand over City, who face Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday. Salah has admitted that the pressure of the title-race has taken its toll on him and his Liverpool teammates. 
 
"You can feel it (the pressure) because you are still a human being," Salah was quoted as telling Sky Sports.
 
"For me it is not a big deal if I win a game now or three weeks ago. 
 
"I want to win each game, but for myself I said that we are playing for the Premier League, so there is pressure.
 
"Also there is pressure for Man City. I said in November that there is pressure and it will be there until the end of the season, because when you play for the Premier League you have to accept that there is pressure. When you go home you can take it with you, but it can help you to work harder and focus on your game.
 
"To enjoy it is not enough, from my side. At the end of the day you have a target in your mind, you have a dream, you want to win the Premier League. I even said that two years ago when I came - it is a dream to win the Premier League," he added.
 
Salah made mention of the 'big week' which Liverpool face, which will seem them play three league clashes in the space of a week beginning with the clash at Old Trafford over the weekend. 
 
"It is a very big week for us. And if we win three games and are top of the table, that is huge for us. 
 
"When you have three games in a week or ten days, you just need to win, win, win, then after that you have time to think.
 
 
"Even when we are not top of the league, I know how much United want to win against Liverpool and Everton the same. For me it is not a big deal. We just need to do what we have been doing for the last couple of months."
 
Which side will emerge victorious between Liverpool and Man United? Let us know in the comments section below.
