Dominik Szoboszlai outlined his ambitions for Liverpool this season after the Reds’ 3-0 win over Nottingham Forest at Anfield.
Goals from Diogo Jota, Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah gave Jürgen Klopp’s men victory on Sunday afternoon, bringing up their eighth consecutive home success in all competitions in 2023-24.
Afterwards, Szoboszlai, whose two assists helped earn him the Carlsberg Player of the Match award, reflected on a hard-fought three points – and suggested there is more to come from the team going forward.
“Everybody tries to beat us, but we are ready for this,” the No.8 told Liverpoolfc.com. “We are ready for [the challenge of] every team. As a group, we can do a lot this season.
“How we started, we just have to continue like this. We just have to work, work, work, as much as we can, and at the end it will pay off.”
On the defeat of Forest, the midfielder added: “I think we deserved to win, we did a great game. Everybody did their job and we took the three points.”
Salah played a key role in all three Liverpool goals on the day, including finishing off the third himself after Szoboszlai’s long pass landed his way.
Szoboszlai said of the Egyptian: “He’s always dangerous, even if it’s a penalty, a counter-attack, if he is assisting or he is scoring. He’s really important for us.”
And of the pleasure he takes from linking up with the prolific forwards within the squad, he noted: “I can only say that they are all great players, fantastic guys. Sometimes they do really good, sometimes ‘just’ good, but never bad! It’s an easy job for us.”
The Reds were without Luis Diaz for the match amid an ongoing family situation for the Colombian in his home country.
Following Jota’s opening goal of the encounter, the scorer headed to the touchline to raise a home shirt bearing Diaz’s name as a gesture of support.
