Salah: Four wins will give Liverpool title

Manchester City have the title race in their hands, but Liverpool's Mohamed Salah believes his side will be champions if they keep winning.

Liverpool will be champion if it wins its last four Premier League games, says Mohamed Salah.

The Reds went back to the top of the table with a 2-0 home win over Chelsea on Sunday.

Defending champion Manchester City had leapfrogged Jurgen Klopp's side earlier in the day by winning 3-1 at Crystal Palace but, after Sadio Mane headed in the opener at Anfield, Salah came up with a sensational long-range drive to seal all three points.

Liverpool is now two points ahead of City, which has a game in hand but faces a testing trip away to rival Manchester United on April 24.

Klopp's side has a run-in that looks more straightforward on paper, with Cardiff City and Newcastle United away and Huddersfield Town and Wolves visiting Anfield.

 

And Salah feels maximum points from those four fixtures would be enough to give Liverpool its first title of the Premier League era.

"My opinion, yes," Salah told Sky Sports when asked if he felt four wins would be enough to pip City.

"We need to focus on our games. We hope Man City will lose points. The Premier League is the most important thing for me.

"I do follow Man City to see the results. It can help and can push us to perform better. We focus on our game, but I knew the result of Man City [against Palace]."

Salah drew level with City striker Sergio Aguero in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot with his unstoppable strike.

"I didn't think, I just feel," he said of his 19th league goal of the season.

"I go inside and normally I shoot with the inside of my foot but this one I went for power.

"I was lucky the ball hit the net like that."
