Egypt international Mohamed Salah says Liverpool will not look beyond the next match as they look to remain focused in quest of their first Premier League title
This comes after the Reds increased their lead of the English Premier League to 16 points by beating Manchester United 2-0 on Sunday evening. Goals came from towering centre back Virgil Van Dijk and then the Egyptian King sealed it right at the end with a sprint from the halfway line from an Alisson assist.
Salah insisted that they are taking it each game as it comes as Liverpool look to clinch their maiden league title since 1990.
“The thought came to my mind that I would not score today but I came back mentally, I prepared myself, to keep calm,” Salah told Sky Sports.
“But even if I didn’t score today, it doesn’t matter – as long as the team keep winning, I’m fine with that.
“We just need to keep focused on each game. We don’t have to think now we’ve won the Premier League,” the winger continued.
“No, we need to take it game by game, that’s the only way we can win the Premier League.
“We struggled last season at the same time [of the campaign], so we have to keep calm and just focus on each game.”
The Reds’ next league match is against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux Stadium on Thursday.
