What you must remember
Sadio Mané (51st), Mohammed Salah (53)
Liverpool takes control of the championship
Liverpool had the pressure after Manchester's victory
City on the grounds of Crystal Palace (3-1). But the Reds have not flinched and
offered Chelsea Blues overall disappointing. From the start, the
Jürgen Klopp's men set the tone. Drying, high recovery, projection
forward: all the ingredients were present except the precision
in the last gesture. The Reds corrected at the break this little flaw and have
folded the match in 3 minutes at the return of the locker room thanks to Mané then Salah. A
success that allowsScousers "
to take the lead in the Premier League, two points ahead of City.
If Liverpool does not have its destiny in hand yet, their calendar is a lot
more favorable than that of City, which has yet to face Tottenham and
especially Manchester United in late match. The suspense of the Premier League has perhaps reached its climax this afternoon.
Salah makes everyone agree
So yes, he misses many things, but what player! What generosity! And what talent! Mo Salah made a great match this afternoon as
he has been so used to Liverpool fans since his arrival from Roma. During the first act, he constantly provoked on his side, driving the defender crazy
Palmieri. With his hooks and his speed, the attacker was a poison
for Chelsea's defense. In the second half, he is at the origin of
the opening of the Mané score by recovering a ball in the feet of a player
Blues before perfectly combining with his captain Henderson, passer
decisive. Then, Salah offered a moment of magic to the 53,279 spectators present at Anfield. A hit
overpowered left 25 meters, leaving no chance for Kepa. Liverpool
needed a Salah at his best to stay in the title race. It is clear that this was the case today to the delight of all fans of the Reds.
Sarri's choices ask questions
8th defeat of the season in the Premier League for
the Blues of Chelsea. At the end of the match, the choices of Maurizio Sarri pose
question. Why start Eden Hazard in fake number 9 while Higuain or
even Olivier Giroud were on the bench? The Belgian met all the
difficulties in the first half to get rid of Liverpool's central defense. It was only after the second goal of the Reds that Sarri decided to bring in Higuain, resulting in the repositioning of Eden Hazard on the right side. The difference was glaring! More free, the number 10 has found his stroke of kidney and his twirling breakthroughs. He could even narrow the gap if he had not spoiled two big chances. Clearly the turning point of the match.
