Sadio Mane is determined to put 'difficult weeks' behind him and help Liverpool achieve their ambitions in the remainder of the season.
The Senegal international has had a stop-start campaign due to injury and suspension, but struck brilliant – and crucial – goals against Burnley and Manchester City last month.
Both the man himself and his manager, Jürgen Klopp, know there is more to come from Mane and he won’t rest in the pursuit of more consistent form.
“There have been some difficult weeks for me. It is part of football,” the Reds forward, who has nine goals so far this term, told Sky Sports.
“All I can do is do my best, score goals, give assists and do my best for my team. We still have many games to play. It is too early to speak about how many goals I will get this season.”
After bouncing back from successive defeats with a 3-0 victory over Huddersfield Town on Tuesday night, Liverpool host top-four rivals Tottenham Hotspur tomorrow.
The north London side claimed an impressive win against Manchester United at Wembley in midweek to move within two points of the Reds in the Premier League table.
But Mane, who bagged both goals in the corresponding fixture of 2016-17, sees no reason to be daunted by this occasion – or, indeed, any other.
“We can beat any team in the league, even in the world. It will be a tough game, but it is possible to win,” continued the No.19.
“It is too early to talk about winning any titles, but our aim is to try and win every single game until the end of the season – why not?
“The team spirit is great, we are all happy to be playing alongside each other. There have been some difficult years here, but that happens to every single club in the world. We are in a good way now, so everything is possible.”
The 25-year-old was reunited with former Southampton teammate Virgil van Dijk when the centre-back completed his transfer to Liverpool on New Year’s Day.
The Dutchman has made three appearances to date as he acclimatises to the demands under Klopp, and Mane is delighted to have his old friend in the same dressing room again.
“He is a great player. I know him very well from my time at Southampton. He is a very good addition for us and we are very happy to have him in the team,” he added.
“He is doing well. He is strong and technically good. He reads the game well and wants to win every single ball.”
