The record in the Premier League is something huge for me and something that makes me proud. I just need to keep working hard and just achieve more for the club and for myself, and also I can’t just say it’s about me.
“It’s also about the players; they also try to help all the time and give me the ball in front of the goal, so I want to thank them also for that achievement. They are a big part of it.”
Liverpool need to avoid defeat in Manchester to boost their hopes of playing in the Champions League next season as they are sixth on the Premier League table with 54 points after 33 matches – four points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
The two-time African Footballer of the Year emphasised the importance of the encounter for their target.
Always a red-letter day in the English football calendar, Sunday’s showdown between these two behemoths could be a particularly significant encounter one way or the other.
Liverpool have already been mathematically dethroned as champions, but the coronation of Manchester City could be officially confirmed this weekend, with Liverpool themselves completing the deal.
Victory for Man City away to Crystal Palace on Saturday would leave Manchester United needing to avoid defeat in this match to prevent their local rivals from being crowned champions with four games to spare.
City’s success is a formality at this stage, and these two sides will instead be focused on the impact this match could have on their respective top-four hopes.
Should Man United win then they would end the weekend at least 12 points clear of fifth place with only four games remaining – effectively an unassailable gap given their superior goal difference too – whereas defeat for Liverpool could see them end the weekend eighth in the table and as many as seven points adrift of fourth-placed Chelsea.
