Liverpool tames Chelsea and keeps the lead!

Big poster this afternoon in England, with the stake in the race for the title, especially after the victory of Manchester City on the lawn of Crystal Palace early this afternoon (3-1). Liverpool hosted Chelsea in his home in Anfield, one point behind Pep Guardiola's men at kickoff. And even if the Reds are in the quarterfinals of the Champions League, Jürgen Klopp was the big team. The Mané-Salah-Firmino trio was thus present at the front, in front of a Fabinho-Keita-Henderson midfielder. Blues side, who want to keep this fourth place and not be surprised by Tottenham, it was also the gala eleven, and offensive animation was provided by Callum Hudson-Odoi, Willian and Eden Hazard in this role false number nine. In the end, the residents of Anfield won by 2-0.

The beginning of the game was particularly intense, with two teams giving the impression of wanting to hurt the opponent fairly quickly in the game. Mohamed Salah was trying even acrobatic recovery after a caviar Naby Keita, but Kepa was well on the path (6th). Gradually, the Reds took the lead against the Blues who wanted to operate against the attack. The London goalkeeper was still in front of Naby Keïta (19th), and in the process, Eden Hazard signed the first blue warning, but Alisson responded present on the shot angle shot (20th). Klopp's men continued to attack, as did Jordan Henderson's attempt (26th), but left plenty of space. Willian was close to enjoy with this shot not framed shortly after a counterattack led quickly (30th).

Salah and Mané still decisive

The debates were balanced a little, while we were waiting for the opening of the score, close to fall on the strike in first intention of Sadio Mane (38th). Antonio Rüdiger, injured, had to leave his place to Christensen in the rear guard London. The Reds continued to attack but ran into a well-placed Chelsea team. This 0-0 at the break did not necessarily reflect the physiognomy of a match rather intense and with some interesting situations on both sides. Side liverpuldien, the side delivered a delivery more than correct, just like the axial mediums, creating danger. Advanced players, however, struggled to show off. In the Blues, Jorginho was particularly good in midfield. At the return of the locker room, the team of Mersey however quickly hit …

Sadio Mané was to open the scoring, pushing a good cross from Jordan Henderson into the net, head (1-0, 51st). It was not finished, since only two minutes later, Mohamed Salah was breaking. After a good shift of van Dijk, the Egyptian star stared at Emerson, transplanted, and sent the leather in the opposite corner (2-0, 53e)! Not slaughtered, the Londoners were reacting and, alone in front of Alisson, Eden Hazard found the post (59th). But little by little, the quality of the meeting fell, with more and more inaccuracies on both sides. What do the business of locals, rather serene. The score has not moved, and Liverpool remains good first, with two points more than the Citizens but also a game disputed more than the Mancunians.
