Mohamed Salah says Liverpool’s time to win their first ever Premier League title has finally come following their emphatic 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace on Wednesday.
Jurgen Klopp’s men are just two points away from being crowned as champions – ending the club’s 30-year wait for a league title.
After a disappointing goalless stalemate in the Merseyside derby, Liverpool got back to winning way when Trent Alexander-Arnold, Salah, Fabinho and Sadio Mane all scored past Roy Hodgson’s men inside an empty Anfield on Wednesday.
Manchester City could hand Liverpool the title if they fail to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Thursday, something Salah has long been waiting for.
‘I feel great,’ he told Sky Sports. ‘Since I came here I said I want to win the Premier League with the team. The city didn’t win it for a long time, so it was the right time.
‘Maybe last year we had a chance to win it but Man City also performed really good and they deserved to win it. It’s our time to win it and it’s great.’
The Reds were dominant against Palace as they recorded their 28th win in 31 league games to put them 23 points ahead of City in second.
Salah praised his team-mates for the performance against Palace, describing them as ‘unbelievable’.
‘We had a great performance today and all the players were unbelievable,’ the forward added.
‘I’m happy about the result and looking forward to the next two games. I think all the players are motivated, everyone is motivated in his way – but everyone is motivated to win the league.’
