Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah has insisted that it is "way too early" for his team to be regarded as the favourites to win the Premier League title.
The Reds are currently six points clear of second-placed Manchester City at the top of the table ahead of Sunday's meeting between the two teams at Anfield.
A win for Jurgen Klopp's side would move them nine points clear at the summit, but Salah has insisted that even a victory over City would not end the title race due to the number of games there are left to play.
"They were talking about that [title race] in December last year when we were six or seven points ahead saying it was over," Salah told Sky Sports News. "It's not over, it's three games. If you have a bad period you can be in trouble again.
"Even if we win it's still a long way, it's only November and way too early to talk about the Premier League."
Liverpool have won 10 and drawn one of their 11 Premier League matches this season, with their only dropped points coming away to bitter rivals Manchester United last month.body check tags ::
