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 amount 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.

Scott McTominay desperate for silverware this season

Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has insisted that the success of the team will always be more important than individual accolades.

The 22-year-old picked up United's Player of the Month award for October having impressed for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side over the last month.

The recent departures of Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera, coupled with Paul Pogba's injury problems, have seen McTominay take on a leading role for the 20-time English champions this term.

The United fans recognised the Scotland international for his contribution last month, but McTominay is desperate to lift some silverware alongside his teammates during the 2019-20 campaign.

"It's pleasing to win a couple of individual trophies, it's a nice feeling," McTominay told United's official website. "But it's difficult when we've had a lot of games. It's a very, very busy period and three or four of the lads could have easily won it as well. So I was fortunate and I thank the fans for voting for me.

"The more important thing is that, when it comes to the business side of the season, we're there or thereabouts and we can win things collectively as a group. That's what everybody is dying for in that changing room.

"We could have three trophies this season and it's something that we're really looking forward to and aspiring to in terms of a group and our goals as well. It's brilliant to win player of the month, but it's about the collective and I wouldn't be able to win it without my teammates."

United booked their spot in the knockout round of the Europa League with of a 3-0 win over Partizan at Old Trafford on Thursday night.
