Ahead of their clash against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, Senegal and Liverpool striker Sadio Mane says they can beat any team in the English Premier League.

The ‘Smiling Assassin’ says the talk of a title challenge is premature and they are confident against any opposition.

"Of course we want to win every game, but sometimes it is difficult to play against teams who just drop back and try to defend,” Mane said to Sky Sports.

"Against big teams, it can be complicated, but like I have always said, we can beat any team in the league, even in the world. It will be a tough game, but it is possible to win.

"It is too early to talk about winning any titles, but our aim is to try and win every single game until the end of the season - why not?.”

Meanwhile, the Lions of Teranga international added that Virgil van Dijk is a great player despite seeing his former Southampton team-mate benched for the midweek success at Huddersfield.

"He is a great player. I know him very well from my time at Southampton. He is a very good addition for us and we are very happy to have him in the team,” concludes Mane.
