Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane fired Liverpool back to the top of the Premier League table with a 2-0 win over Chelsea.

Although the Reds have a two-point advantage over Manchester City, Pep Guardiola’s side are in the driving seat courtesy of their game in hand.

Despite the numbers leaning in City’s favour, the mood in the red half of Merseyside is overwhelmingly positive, and Salah thinks his side have what it takes to be at the summit after 38 games.

”In my opinion, yes,” Salah replied when asked by Sky Sports if four wins would be enough for Liverpool to win the title.

“We just need to focus on our game and hope Manchester City will lose points.

“I did follow Man City to see the result, it can help us but also it can push us to perform better. You need to score, you can’t lose any points, I knew the result of Manchester City’s game.”

City beat Crystal Palace 3-1 in the early kick-off on Sunday to put pressure back on Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Liverpool were not swayed by the result of their rivals, and dispatched Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea with relative ease.

Salah, 26, has notched an impressive 17 goals in the league this term, with his team-mates Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino adding 18 and 12 respectively.

Salah added: ”It’s different when other teams have two or three players on me.

“Mane is having a very good season, so is Firmino, they are scoring more goals than last season, because the attention on me is giving them more freedom, and I am very happy for them.

“It helps the team to score more goals, when they focus on my side the other side is free, we are a team and we focus on the team.”

Klopp was full of praise for his side after their latest victory, and admitted that Salah’s wonderstike took him by surprise.

He said: “I didn’t think anything in that moment but I know I was really happy because I was in line with the ball and maybe I saw first that it would go in.”

He went on to discuss the biggest hurdle in the title race for his side by saying: “The biggest challenge for us is always facing the world outside. We play our game.

“If City lose today, and we find out five minutes before the game, somebody tells us “City lost!” then that is not a help. You lose your focus then.”
