Liverpool forward Mo Salah has played down the importance of their rivalry with Manchester United, and Everton, this week. 

Salah says that he is aware of how much both clubs want to beat Liverpool, but he is not concerned by their ambitions, as much as he is his own. 

The Egyptian winger says that Liverpool just have to win all three of their games in the next week, against Manchester United, Watford and Everton. 

Speaking to The Evening Standard, Salah said this: 

It is a very big week for us. And if we win three games and are top of the table, that is huge for us.

When you have three games in a week or ten days, you just need to win, win, win, then after that you have time to think.

Even when we are not top of the league, I know how much United want to win against Liverpool and Everton the same. For me it is not a big deal.

We just need to do what we have been doing for the last couple of months.

Liverpool travel away to face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday, with the chance to return to the top of the table – whilst Manchester City face Chelsea in the League Cup final at Wembley.
