Egyptian international football star Mohamed Salah, commented on the victory of his team Liverpool FC against Manchester City, 1-0, in the match that was held at Anfield in the 11th round of the English Premier League.
Salah scored Liverpool’s goal in the 76th minute after a long pass from Alisson, finishing off with skillful dribbling to put Ederson in the net.
“Manchester City always controls the ball and has possession, but the three points are very important. Winning today’s match will hopefully give us more confidence, we weren’t at our best but we have to keep fighting,” Salah said in comments for Sky Sports.
“I am not worried when I do not score a chance, but I am worried when opportunities do not come, I knew that the second chance would come to me until I succeeded in scoring,” he added.
Salah continued: “Liverpool is still far from the Premier League title, but we just have to focus on each match. I love fighting for titles, but at the moment all we need is to focus on each match alone.”
“We all know that we have to be in a better position, we are all excited to win again, to keep winning, and to beat City gives us more confidence.”
