I'm Excited - Liverpool Star Hails Win Over Chelsea As Title Push Continues

Jamie Carragher lavished praise on Mohamed Salah after his sublime long-range strike helped to fire Liverpool FC to a 2-0 win over Chelsea FC.

Salah nicked the ball off Emerson deep in his own penalty area and Jordan Henderson seized on the mistake to clip a cross to the far post where the unmarked Mane headed home his 18th Premier League goal of the season.

He added: "It's one of the goals of the season". His touch has been off and his decision-making sometimes poor, despite his impressive goal tally this season.

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah struck a stunning goal in his team's crunch Premier League clash against Chelsea, following a week in which fans of the London club were reportedly filmed racially abusing him. Klopp was thrilled by what he described as a complete team performance and the buildup to Mané's 13th goal in 16 games but it was the striker's emphatic finish past Kepa Arrizabalaga that left him momentarily speechless.

He said: "I like to play against the best players in the world and he's up there". And I don't want to minimise that but I loved the first goal exactly the same.

"We just focus on our games, we have a massive game next in the Champions League then to Cardiff which will be tough as well", the Liverpool defender said on Sky Sports after the match.

Former Liverpool captain Tommy Smith dies aged 74
Liverpool posted a video of former player and manager Kenny Dalglish, who credited Smith with helping him settle at the club. Smith was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in October 2014, and battled bravely with the illness until his death.

The victory kept Liverpool title hopes very much alive as they return back to the top of the Premier League table, two points ahead of Manchester City, however, the latter still have a game in hand.

Chelsea, who started the season in excellent form, are in a battle to hold off Arsenal and Man Utd in a battle for 4th place and the lucrative involvement in the Champions League. If not then we can not change it.

"We don't care about who can win the title, we'll go there and try to win the game", Hazard told the BBC.

A disappointing afternoon for Chelsea was made worse by a first-half injury suffered by centre-back Antonio Rudiger.

'Winning is about mentality if you think you can then you can win something'.
