Liverpool star Sadio Mane says the club cannot afford to be concerned by what their Premier League rivals are doing.

The Reds sit six points behind league leaders Chelsea after 17 matches, with some suggesting the title is already the West London club’s to lose.

However, Senegal international Mane feels that the Merseyside giants can only worry about themselves and not to bothered by anyone around them after defeating local rivals Everton 1-0 in a hard-fought affair on Monday night.

“I think wins like this show we will be there,” he said.

“We are not thinking about Chelsea. We are focusing on our team and it was important to get the three points at Everton. We take each game at a time.

“It is still early to talk about what is going to happen but one of our ambitions is to go far as possible and we are going to try to do that.”

Liverpool next meet 11th-placed Stoke City at Anfield on Tuesday evening.
