Cape Town - Liverpool star Mohamed Salah insists his side are taking each game in their stride and are dealing with the pressure of the title race.

The Reds are currently second in the Premier League but they are level on points with Manchester City.

Jurgen Klopp's side also has a game in hand over their rivals as they prepare for a huge game against Manchester United on Sunday.

Salah insists that his team-mates are just taking the games in their stride.

He told Sky Sports: "You can feel it [the pressure] because you are still a human being.

"For me, it is not a big deal if I win a game now or three weeks ago.

"I want to win each game, but for myself, I said that we are playing for the Premier League, so there is pressure. Also, there is pressure for Man City.

"I said in November that there is pressure and it will be there until the end of the season because when you play for the Premier League, you have to accept that there is pressure.

"When you go home you can take it with you, but it can help you to work harder and focus on your game.

"To enjoy it is not enough, from my side. At the end of the day you have a target in your mind, you have a dream, you want to win the Premier League.

"I even said that two years ago when I came - it is a dream to win the Premier League."

Kick-off on Sunday is at 16:05 (SA time).
