Liverpool can go eight points clear at the top of the table on Saturday having failed to win the league title since 1990.
Mendy said: “Liverpool is very strong team with good players, so it's nice to have this in this league and it's what we like.
“It will be a very good league this year again.
“The people like to watch this game, they know in this game the points are very important.
“So, the people wait for this game, but you have a lot of points in the year that we can take - so we need to be focused on each one."
