Mohamed Salah thinks Liverpool will be Premier League champions if they win their remaining four matches of the season.
Salah scored a stunning goal to help secure a 2-0 victory over Chelsea on Super Sunday and move Liverpool back to the top of the table.
Liverpool are two points clear of Manchester City, who won 3-1 against Crystal Palace on Sunday and have a game in hand.
City boss Pep Guardiola says he trusts his City players to win each remaining game, but Salah thinks Liverpool will finish top if they beat Cardiff (A), Huddersfield (H), Newcastle (A), and Wolves (H).
Easier opposition for Reds?
The average league position of Man City's remaining opponents is 9.2, while Liverpool's is 15.3
"In my opinion, yes," Salah told Sky Sports.
"We just need to focus on our game and hope Manchester City will lose points.
"I did follow Man City to see the result, it can help us but also it can push us to perform better. You need to score, you can't lose any points, I knew the result of Manchester City's game."
Salah's goal against Chelsea was his 21st of the season in the Premier League, moving him joint-top of the scoring charts with Sergio Aguero.
Salah's form has been questioned at times over the last few months, but he said: "It's different when other teams have two or three players on me. [Sadio] Mane is having a very good season, so is [Roberto] Firmino, they are scoring more goals than last season, because the attention on me is giving them more freedom, and I am very happy for them.
"It helps the team to score more goals, when they focus on my side the other side is free, we are a team and we focus on the team.

"I am not complaining, I am happy with the result, we are first now so that's the most important thing. The Premier League is the most important thing for me."
City face Spurs (H), Manchester United (A), Burnley (A), Leicester (H) and Brighton (A), knowing a win in all five mean they retain the title.
"We have done two seasons, 183 points, with five games left, two seasons, why should I doubt what these players have done? I never doubt my players," Guardiola said.
"We think Liverpool will win all the games. We have to win all the games. Tough games - but it's in our hands."
