I can play EVERYDAY!

Sadio Mane, the Premier League striker, believes in his team's ability to get past the busy schedule in December without exhaustion

The Reds are playing 9 games in 4 championships next month, as they play against Aston Villa in the English Carabao Cup on December 17, one day before the first game in the Club World Cup in Qatar.

The UEFA Champions League holder tied with Napoli (1-1) in the group stage last Wednesday, but Mane indicated that players "will not struggle to cope with mental fatigue."

"Fatigue is mental, so if the body recovers well, it won't be difficult to play in every game," the 27-year-old told British media.

"If the team and coach need us, I think we will play and help the team. I am here to work every day and I am ready to play every day."

The Senegal striker has participated in all of Liverpool's league matches this season, scored 8 goals and has played five Champions League matches.

His teammates in the attack, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, played 18 and 16 games, respectively, in all competitions so far, regardless of the Community Shield match and the European Super Cup.

"Winning the Champions League last season led Liverpool to new heights, and success in the Club World Cup, will be a driving force," said Mane.

"I always say winning games and titles motivates players all the time. If we win the Club World Cup we will gain more momentum," he added.

Liverpool, who tops the Premier League, are 8 points ahead of their closest pursuers, and will play Brighton & Hove Albion, tomorrow, Saturday the12th, .

And On facing Brighton, Jürgen Klopp said:

We play Brighton with a very, very exciting development, when you see them playing now – how they play, the way they play, the possession they have; I think they are seventh or so for possession in the league. Against City they had 48 [per cent] or so, they play proper football. They really have their own plan and I respect that a lot. Graham is doing a really good job there. It’s just a tough one. After that game pretty much everybody has three games a week coming up now with different cup competitions. But Brighton had a full week to prepare and they are innovative, they think a lot about football obviously, and so they will come here and try to get the points. I’m 100 per cent sure, no doubt about that. And we have to be ready, three days after a very intense game against Napoli.
