Salah, Firmino make everything easier for me: Liverpool forward Mane

The target of Liverpool's attacking trio is another 250 goals and more trophies with Liverpool according to Mane


Liverpool’s Senegalese forward Sadio Mane hailed the impact of attacking line teammates Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, stressing that the Egyptian and Brazilian make everything easier for him.

Salah's brace in Wednesday’s 3-1 win at Brighton took him to 19 goals this season along with the combined total of the frontline trio to 250 goals for the Reds in all competitions through the past three seasons.

"I think our target is another 250 again and more trophies with Liverpool," Mane told via video link on Saturday.

"I think it's just unbelievable. It's not easy to play in England and score this [amount] of goals. It's just incredible because there are so many good teams and strong defenders, so it's not easy,” he added.

The attacking trio played an instrumental role in guiding Liverpool for winning the UEFA Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup titles last season, before ensuring the English Premier League title this season two weeks ago with seven matches to spare.

Liverpool will be facing Burnley on Saturday followed by games against Arsenal, Chelsea and Newcastle as the frontline trio still have a chance to end the season on a high note.

"We always try to work harder and harder to get better and better to do the best for the team,” the Senegalese international explained.

"Playing alongside these two, even me and you, I think we can both play alongside these two great players.

"So you just need to be fit and then you play alongside them because they make everything easier for me and you,” he concluded.

Liverpool currently lead the Premier League table with 92 points from 34 matches, 23 points ahead of second-placed Manchester City.
