Mohamed Salah said Wednesday had come the time for Liverpool to win the Premier League, after their resounding 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace. Goals from Trent Alexander-Arnold, Salah, Fabinho, and Sadio Mane at Anfield saw Jurgen Klopp’s men take yet another step towards the first league title of 30 years.
If Manchester City fails to defeat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, on Thursday, Liverpool may be crowned as Champions.
Salah is happy about making Liverpool just two points away from a first league crown since 1990.
He told Sky Sports: “I’m amazed. I said that since I came here I want to win the Premier League with the team. The city hasn’t been winning it for a long time, so it was the right time. We may have had a chance last year to win it, but Man City always did a good job and they deserved to win it. It’s our time and winning is fantastic.”
Liverpool won on their way to the 28th victory in 31 league games this season over Palace.
Until July 2, when they visited Town, Salah praised the success with Liverpool still not in action again.
The forward said: “Today we have had a great performance and it was incredible for all the players. I’m pleased with the result and look forward to the next two games. I think all players are excited, everyone is excited in their way-but everyone is motivated to win the title.”
On Wednesday, Klopp dedicated Liverpool’s success to the club’s supporters who won’t be there when the Reds lock up the league championship.
He added: “We’ve shown a lot if not all, that has put us in the role we ‘re in. I said that before this part of the season I wanted to see the best back-closed-door football ever. I don’t know if we had that, but for sure it was the best counter-pressure ever behind closed doors!
