Liverpool's star striker, Mohamed Salah, stated that he is willing to sacrifice the dream of winning the Champions League to deliver his team the Premier League title this season.
The Reds, are ranked second in the Premier League standings. They are only one point adrift of Manchester City who are entrenched at the top of the standings.
Like City, Jurgen Klopp's troops still have eight remaining matches to fight for the 2018/2019 Premier League title.
However, before continuing their fight in the domestic competition, Liverpool must face Bayern Munich first in the Champions League last 16 second leg match on Wednesday.
The match will certainly not be easy for Liverpool who have been held to a 0-0 draw by Bayern in the first leg at Anfield Stadium, in February.
Now the Reds must fight hard to beat Bayern at the Allianz Arena, if they want to win tickets to the Champions League quarter-finals this season.
Mohamed Salah acknowledges that the Champions League is a prestigious competition. However, he would be happier if Liverpool wins the Premier League.
"I will be honest with you, the most prestigious competition for me is the Champions League. However, the dream of all residents of this city and club is the league (Premier League)," Salah said ahead of the match against Bayern Munich, to Sky Sports.
"So, I am happy to sacrifice my dreams for their dreams, but if we manage to win both, it will be great and this is what we are trying to do," added the Egyptianplayer.
One hopes that Manchester City will slip in the remainder of the Premier League match so that Liverpool can take over the top of the table.
"The competition is very tough and we have difficult matches left, just like them. The thing you can do is win games and hope they will lose in one match so we can win the title," Salah concluded.
