Egypt international Mohamed Salah feels one step closer to achieving a target he set when he first joined Liverpool FC.
The Reds moved closer to clinching this season’s English Premier League title after securing a comfortable 4-0 win over Crystal Palace on Wednesday.
The league leaders could even be confirmed as winners on Thursday evening, should reigning holders Manchester City fail to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Salah, who was on the score sheet against the Eagles, told the club’s official website: “I feel great.”
“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 won it. It’s our time to win it and it’s great.”
The emphatic win helped Liverpool go 25 points clear at the top with seven games remaining.
“Two points to go to win the league, it’s great,” Salah, who is looking forward to clinching his maiden Premier League title, added.
“We had a great performance today and all the players were unbelievable. 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.”
