Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah says he is ready to sacrifice his Champions League dream to help the Reds win their first Premier League title.

The Merseyside outfit remain in contention to win both competitions, but their domestic league remains their main target.

Jurgen Klopp’s men are set to travel to Germany to take on Bayern Munich on Wednesday night and they go there off the back of a 0-0 first-leg draw at Anfield.

Liverpool remain unbeaten in their last 10 games and they put the pressure on Manchester City by beating Burnley on Sunday.

Just one point separates them at present in the Premier League and Salah admits the club’s desire to lift the trophy means more than his own ambitions.

He told reporters: “I will be honest with you, the most prestigious competition for me is the Champions League. But the dream for the entire city and the club is the league.

“So, I am happy to sacrifice my dream for their dream but if we win both that would great and this is what we are trying to do. All you can do is win your games and hopefully they will fail in one so we can win the title.

“My mind is sharp and there is pressure but I am strong mentally and we just have to keep going. We will see what we can do at the end of the season but mentally I am ready for everything.”

Bayern remain 2.15 favourites to win in 90 minutes, while the draw is 3.60 and Liverpool are 3.40.
