Liverpool are looking to reclaim the title from Manchester City this season and Mohamed Salah believes Liverpool ‘have what it takes’ to do just that.
The Reds would’ve wanted to have City’s number and lay down a marker in the title race, but the points were shared after an enthralling 90 minutes at Anfield on Sunday that ended in a 2-2 draw.
After a disappointing first-half display, Sadio Mane gave the hosts the lead before Phil Foden put Pep Guardiola’s side back on level terms shortly after.
Salah responded to the set-back by doing what he does best, which is sticking the ball into the back of the net in impressive fashion.
The Egyptian scored his sixth Premier League goal of the season and it was a finish that deserved to be the winner, but it wasn’t to be as Kevin De Bruyne had the final say on matters.
Salah took to social media after the game to send a clear title warning to their rivals.
He said on Instagram: “We really wanted to win this one but we’re still in the game.
“We’re going for the title and we have what it takes.”
Liverpool have been knocked off top spot in the Premier League table after Sunday’s draw, as Chelsea now sit at the summit on 16 points following their victory over Southampton on Saturday.
The Reds are just behind on 15 points, while City, Manchester United, Everton and Brighton all currently have 14 points – although City are third on goal difference.
The previous four league titles have been won by City and Liverpool, which highlights the dominance of the two clubs in recent years.
Liverpool’s title came in 2019/20, while City won back-to-back titles in 2017/18 and 2018/19, before reclaiming the trophy from the Reds last season.
