Sadio Mane says that the Liverpool squad are “lucky boys” and can beat any team “on our day”.
Liverpool are third in the Premier League and virtually guaranteed a place in the Champions League quarter-finals after beating Porto 5-0 away in the first leg of their last-16 tie.
The Reds are on a fine run of goalscoring form, netting two goals or more in their last six matches.
Mane says that “team spirit” has been key to their success thus far.
“The team spirit is good and the confidence is here so I think we are in a good way,” he said.
“Every single player is always very happy playing with each other. We always try to help each other and we work as a team.
“I think that is the team’s power and the team’s purpose. Every single player would love to play in this team.
“We are lucky boys and we are going to keep trying to work hard and give our best when we take our places on the pitch to continue to try and win the games.
“I can sense that the club is moving in the right direction. There were a couple of difficult years at Liverpool a while back but those things happen to every single club in the world.
“At the moment we are in a good way so everything is possible. I think we have improved a lot in the past few months.
“We know that on our day we can beat any team in the world.”
