Liverpool midfielder Fabinho insisted the Reds remain "in a good situation" despite dropping points in their last three league games.
The result followed two stalemates against lowly West Brom and Newcastle, plus a 1-0 defeat at St. Mary's to start the New Year.
The reigning champions' recent form has seen their title rivals close the gap at the top of the table, with this weekend's opponent, Manchester United, steaming ahead with three points against Burnley on Tuesday night.
But despite Liverpool seeing their lead diminish at the top of the table, Fabinho insists the squad's attention remains solely on themselves as they look to "play their football" and "win games."
"The main thing is to play our football and winning games. Unfortunately, it wasn't the case in the last three matches.
"Although we lost some important points, we are still in a good sitatuon. Right now we are on top of the table. If there is something to change it's not a bad siuation to do it, as we are on top of the league.
"We have a big opportunity on Sunday against Man United and hopefully we can be the winners."
Despite no concrete links, there have been murmurs suggesting the Egyptian is on the radar of some Europe's biggest clubs.
However, as Fabinho explains, it's "normal" to see players of Salah's ilk being linked with top teams.
"Big players will always have their names involved in rumours," Fabinho said. "Salah plays for Liverpool, one of the biggest teams in the world. So I think it's normal to see his name linked to other teams, especially from different leagues.
"Anyway, I see him very happy here and pleased with his performances this season. He's very demanding with himself, he wants to be the best, he wants to help the team and works hard for it.
"It's always been the case and it hasn't changed at all. He keeps scoring goals, which everyone is used to seeing.
"In the changing room, he's always talking to everyone and making jokes. I don't see anything affecting him.
"Overall, I am not following the news so I'm not sure about rumours. As I said, top quality players will always be linked to big clubs."
While Jota remains sidelined with a knee injury after a promising start to his Liverpool stint, Thiago has just returned back to the fold following an injury himself.
"Their arrival was very important to us. First of all, they fit very well in the team," Fabinho said of his new teammates.
"Jota came in and it seemed he was playing for us for a long time. He was scoring one after another.
"He's like that, he's always at the right place to finish the play. And we really needed someone with his charactersitics.
"Regarding Thiago, I've always admired his football. He's a different player, he's a rare midfielder, you won't find many like him. So it's a privilege to have him with us.
"We hope he can have a sequence of games to get confidence. I do believe he will be a key part of the team.
"On a personal note, they are two Portuguese speakers and it's great to have two more. Well, more Thiago, who is half-Brazilian, half-Spanish.
"Anyways, it's nice to speak our mother language every now and again at the club. And for their adaption it's also helpful, even though they speak English very well."
