Liverpool began their season by drawing 2-2 with newly-promoted Fulham. This was followed by another lackluster showing vs Crystal Palace earlier this week, which saw the Reds once again settle for a point.
Manchester City, meanwhile, won their opening two games with ease and could go seven points clear of Liverpool on Sunday if they beat Newcastle United.
And whilst it is early in the season, having that sort of gap to make up on a team like Man City is not exactly ideal.
However, Mohamed Salah believes it is too early to be thinking about the title race.
Talking to Sky Sports he said: “We didn’t start the way we want but I think it is part of the game, we have to react. We lost four points in the first two games but it can happen.
“I think everybody is excited about the season, everybody wants to show our football again so we just need to carry on, we can’t change the past so we just focus on the next game.”
Talking about the prospect being seven points adrift of Manchester City should results not go their way Salah said: “It could be a little bit of pressure, seven points behind City, but I think it is too early to think about that.”
Liverpool face Manchester United on Monday evening.
