Sadio Mane is targeting a perfect end to the Premier League season as Liverpool strive to become champions.

Late Kop-end drama saw the Reds retake top spot on Sunday, with Toby Alderweireld’s 90th-minute own goal ensuring a 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

Jürgen Klopp’s side therefore sit two points above Manchester City, although Pep Guardiola’s team retain a game in hand.

Liverpool visit Southampton on Friday for their 33rd top-flight fixture of the campaign - and Mane is aiming to win all six remaining matches in the hope doing so would be enough to finish above the reigning champions.

“I think everything is possible, so let’s do it and win it. To be honest I think we need to win all of the games, even if it will not be easy. We still can win every game because we are a good team and we play very well,” the No.10 said.

Klopp labelled the weekend win against Spurs ‘rather ugly’ post-match, and Mane thinks the Reds not being at their free-flowing best was possibly down to the challenges involved with returning from the international break.

The Senegal star continued: “Sometimes it’s difficult after the international break because we only had two or three sessions together. 

“Now we are back and we start with a win, I think it’s very important. We have three or four more days to train together so be like before and go again.”
