London: According to Mohamed Salah, Liverpool's sole focus is on waiting 30 years to win the Premier League title instead of remaining unbeaten all season.
Jürgen Klopp's men lost only two points in 21 games, setting a new record for the five best leagues in Europe by 61 points.
That has pushed the European champions to a 14-point advantage over defending champions Manchester City with a game in hand, but Salah insists the Reds still take their title challenge one game at a time before Manchester United take on Anfield on Sunday.
"We don't think we will be undefeated by the end of the season. If we do that it would be great, but at the end of the day we just want to win the Premier League. That is the most important thing," said Salah, Premier League Productions.
"Unbeaten or not, it's not necessary – we want to win the Premier League."
Liverpool could take 30 points ahead of United on Sunday, but the Red Devils are the only team to clear points after a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford in October this season.
Salah missed the game due to injury and wants to make up for lost time in the duel between the two most successful teams in English football.
"We have to win, we have to keep going our way – as we have done since the start of the season and last year," added the Egyptian.
"Of course we know it's big for the fans, for the city and for us. But at the end of the day we play the game to win."
