Sakho Aims To Get Reds Back On Track

2 May 2014

Mamadou Sakho believes Liverpool need to stay calm as the Reds make the trip to Selhurst Park on Monday night.

The Eagles are still full of confidence having only lost one of their last six games which came in last weekend's match against Manchester City, and Monday night’s visitors can’t afford to drop any more points in their quest for a first Premeir League title.

After defeat to Chelsea in their last game put the championship out of their hands, Sakho believes his side need to remain calm and concentrate on their last two games.

The French international said: "We have to remain calm and relaxed. Like I said, everything is going well, even though we lost that game. But that defeat, it's in the past now, it's behind us.

"We now have to focus on what's ahead of us, meaning the next two games, and we mustn't change anything. We should remain true to ourselves and play our own game and then try and win those two matches so we can grab those six points.

"I think we have shown great strength of character this season. It's all happened in a quite natural way because the team gets on really well together, we have a fantastic manager, exceptional backroom staff and magnificent supporters.”

On the last day of the Palace face Fulham at Craven Cottage whilst Liverpool are home to Newcastle United. With a sell-out crowd expected at Selhurst Park for Palace’s last home game of the season Sakho believes the Liverpool supporters will play a big part once again.

"The support is fantastic. This is the Liverpool family. The supporters are very, very important for the team and the club.

"When people tell me Liverpool are a good team, I say it's not just the players and the staff - it is the players, staff and the city. For me, Liverpool is a country because the supporters are fantastic."
