Mamadou Sakho believes Liverpool are right in the mix for the Premier League title this season.

The Reds, who are currently in second place in the Premier League table, are two points behind English leaders Arsenal following a 5-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

It simply shows that Liverpool are right in the mix and that we want to remain in and around the top of the table

And Sakho, who moved to Liverpool from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer, believes Brendan Rodgers’ men have sent out a “very strong message” to their title rivals.

“It was a great atmosphere in the dressing room after that win,” Sakho said. “It’s normal to have celebrated and savoured the moment because it’s not every day that you win at
Tottenham by five clear goals.

“We were very happy with how the match went, very satisfied with the result and with all the effort put in by everyone.

“I think it simply shows that Liverpool are right in the mix and that we want to remain in and around the top of the table.

“I think it’s a very strong message that we’ve sent, and while our main aim is to be in the places for the Champions League, we will see how things stand towards the end of the season to see if we are in the running for the title itself.

“But the first target is to get back on the European stage once again.”
