- Mohamed Salah has assured Liverpool fans that the squad will fight until the end
- Last season’s Premier League champions now find themselves 13 points behind Man City
- Salah admits it is a tough period for many reasons, promising that things will change for the better
Liverpool star Mohammed Salah has stated that the reigning Premier League kings will fight like champions until the end of the season.
Jurgen Klopp’s men are now 13 points behind Premier League table toppers Manchester City following their 3-1 loss to Leicester City over the weekend.
It was their third consecutive loss and fans have criticised Klopp’s tactics since the start of the second-half of the campaign.
"It's been a tough period for many reasons. We will not allow this season to be defined by the recent results we've had. That is my promise to all of you."
The Reds - who have lost key players to injury this season - have lost six league games this season, causing boss Jurgen Klopp to concede their title hopes on Saturday.
The manager is now favoured to become the next tactician to leave the Premier League following poor results in recent matches.
The German coach shot to the top of the list after admitting that the Reds’ title hopes were over after the club collapsed in the second half of the season and on a losing streak.
Jurgen Klopp says top four is now Liverpool's 'main target' but they are now looking to launch a bid for impressive Leeds forward Raphinha this summer in a bid to bolster their attack in the coming season.
The manager has made the player a transfer target hoping he would help reduce the attack burden on Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Manchester United dropped points yet again in the Premier League and now their chances of winning the title becomes slimmer.
The Red Devils played a 1-1 draw with West Brom on Sunday afternoon, February 14, and now they trail Manchester City with seven points as the league leaders also have a game in hand.
Mbaye Diagne headed home an opener after less than two minutes at the Hawthorns after getting in between Victor Lindelof and David de Gea to meet a deep cross, before Bruno Fernandes restored parity just before half-time.
