Mohamed Salah has warned his Liverpool FC team-mates that Manchester United will not be lacking any motivation when the Red Devils host Jurgen Klopp’s men on Sunday afternoon.

Liverpool FC head into the game knowing that a victory would move them three points clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table.

The Reds have dropped some points in recent weeks but are still very much in the running to win their first ever Premier League title under their German manager.

Liverpool FC will be looking to bounce back from their frustrating goalless draw with Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Manchester United, however, have been in fine form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and head into Sunday’s game on the back of their impressive 2-0 win at Chelsea FC on Monday night.

And Salah has warned his team-mates that Manchester United will not be lacking any motivation ahead of Sunday’s clash at Old Trafford.

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Salah said: “It is a very big week for us. And if we win three games and are top of the table, that is huge for us. When you have three games in a week or ten days, you just need to win, win, win, then after that you have time to think.

“Even when we are not top of the league, I know how much United want to win against Liverpool and Everton the same. For me it is not a big deal.

“We just need to do what we have been doing for the last couple of months.”

He continued: “You can feel it [the pressure] because you are still a human being.

“For me it is not a big deal if I win a game now or three weeks ago. I want to win each game, but for myself I said that we are playing for the Premier League, so there is pressure.

“Also there is pressure for Man City. I said in November that there is pressure and it will be there until the end of the season, because when you play for the Premier League you have to accept that there is pressure.

“When you go home you can take it with you, but it can help you to work harder and focus on your game.”

Liverpool FC are still aiming to win their first major trophy under Klopp since his appointment back in October 2015.

The Reds reached the Champions League final last season but ended up losing to Real Madrid in the showpiece.
