Mohamed Salah had told the Daily Mirror that Liverpool have nothing to fear from facing Manchester City in the Champions League quarterfinals -- and believes the Reds can challenge for the Premier League title next season.
The two teams will meet in the last eight of the competition at the start of next month. Although Liverpool lost 5-0 at the Etihad early in the campaign, they are the only team to beat City in the Premier League this season after a 4-3 win at Anfield in January.
Mohamed Salah stayed humble after scoring four goals and adding an assist in Liverpool's 5-0 rout over Watford on Tuesday, crediting his teammates for giving him opportunities to score.
Salah, who became the second player to score four in a Premier League game this season after Manchester City's Sergio Aguero did it against Leicester on Feb. 10, brought his league goal tally up to 28 to move four clear of Tottenham's Harry Kane in the race for the Golden Boot.
