Mo Salah Rocket Gives Liverpool Upperhand Against Chelsea

Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United battling for a Champions League place and 60 million euros

Liverpool clinched maximum reward at Anfield to leapfrog Manchester City to the top of the Premier League table, courtesy of Sadio Mane's opener and a scintillating Mohamed Salah strike.

Liverpool took the lead in the 51st minute thanks to a goal from Sadio Mane, but it was the goal in the 53rd minute, from Mohamed Salah, that will be one we are watching for a long, long time. His touch has been off and his decision-making sometimes poor, despite his impressive goal tally this season.

Three days after video surfaced of a group of Chelsea supporters aiming a derogatory chant toward him on social media, Salah hurt his former club by smashing a left-footed shot into the top corner from 25 yards to double Liverpool's lead.

Yet again, it was another "must win" game-and, yet again, the Reds won. I don't see why he would want to leave, the club loves him and he loves the club, but whether it is to Real Madrid, another club he loves and with Zinedine Zidane, it could be hard to keep him.

Liverpool are under pressure as they bid to end a 29-year wait for an English league trophy but can help themselves by embracing the challenge in the home stretch of the campaign, Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has said.

With City beating Crystal Palace 3-1 earlier, Liverpool stayed two points clear of the defending champions having played one game more.

The incident rose to prominence after Gerrard was filmed screaming "we do not let this slip" after Liverpool beat Man City earlier in the season. "That was Salah absolutely at his very, very best, what a hit!" We play our game.

"We just need to focus on our game and hope Manchester City will lose points", Salah said. What we want to do is collect as many points as possible, really - 85 points, four games to play, that means [we can get] 97. You lose your focus then. "If that's enough, perfect, and if not, we can not change it".

When they reappeared at the start of the second half, the ache for a breakthrough would have paralysed those entrusted to mine their way through Chelsea's defence.
