Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has announced that he and his teammates will do their best to help Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah to return to scoring form after he has gone seven games without scoring for the Reds, which is his longest drought since joining the club in 2017.

"It is up to himself and his team-mates to get Salah back to scoring goals," Mane told SkySports.

"People out and around the club are speaking about Mo because he used to score almost every single game.

"It's almost normal because it's football, but we all know him as somebody who is very, very relaxed with the situation. Sometimes it can happen," Mane added.

"But I would especially love to see him smiling by scoring goals. We try to help him score more goals, for him."

The 26-year-old forward Mane said he feels the pressure watching Manchester City play as the Premier League season nears its dramatic conclusion.

City and Liverpool are locked in a Premier League title tussle, with City just two points behind their Merseyside rivals.

"I think the truth is Manchester City is one place below," Mane said.

"Of course, we are more focused on ourselves, but sometimes we look when Manchester is playing, we have more pressure than if we play ourselves!

"I want them to lose, and they are so good, and sometimes it's difficult for them to lose." the Senegalese added.
