“It’s great to win the Premier League after a long time. Unbelievable, ”said Salah.
Manchester City and Liverpool play at 7:30 pm on Thursday, in what could have been a critical clash for City’s loss last week.
“I think some players wanted to beat Man City and win it there. It was an incredible feeling when Chelsea scored second and wow, it was a party, ‘Salah continued.
“I remember last year against Man United where we went, I went into the dressing room and started crying. It was then that I felt we lost the Premier League. ‘

The 0-0 draw against Manchester United in February last year put Liverpool at the top of the table with one point, but they were disappointed that they couldn’t make it out of a game with three United injuries in the first half.
Manchester City eventually took the lead in the title race and won it by just one point on the last day.
“It’s incredible to win this time if I lost it by one point last year,” said Salah.
“The first time we thought we could win [this season] was when we beat City. Then a few games like Leicester at home we mentally knew it’s our season. We didn’t have that luck last season. ‘
With the score 1-1 when Liverpool and Leicester met at Anfield in October, James Milner suffered a dramatic injury time to give them the win.

“I think what motivates us are the records, I think the point total is a good motivation. We’ve tried to be invincible, but we can’t change that. ‘
Liverpool chased Arsenal’s ‘Invincibles’ record from zero losses in a league season, to a surprising 3-0 defeat to Watford in February.
“I think I want to break the team points in the back of my mind and get the golden shoe.
“I’m sure City will come back strong, as they have now. We have had a fantastic season and have been very good and I am sure they will try hard to fight next season. ‘
