(Reuters) - Liverpool must replicate their Champions League finishing to revive their Premier League campaign, winger Mohamed Salah has said.

Salah and striker Roberto Firmino grabbed a brace each as Liverpool pounded Maribor 7-0 on Tuesday night to record their biggest away European win.

The victory has given Liverpool, who managed one win in their last five league games, the confidence to be more clinical in front of goal, said Salah.

"I think it's an important result for us so we have to keep looking forward and we have to win the next games," the Egypt international told BT Sport.

"In the last three or four games we missed many chances... and we had bad luck.

"I think that everyone has confidence that the good result is coming, so now we are in a good position and I'm sure in the next games it will be the same."

The 25-year-old has now scored eight goals in 13 appearances for Liverpool but was more occupied with team performance than personal record.

"The team did good and we had a good result so that's the most important thing," Salah added.

"I'm very happy for that - seven goals or eight goals (scored since he joined Liverpool) doesn't change anything, but the most important thing for us is to concentrate on improving the results in the Premier League.

"We didn't win for two, three games, so we need to carry on and keep looking forward and win the next games."

Eighth placed Liverpool travel to third placed Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
