Liverpool stumble again after a 1-0 loss to Chelsea
In a game bogged down to the middle of the park, it was Oliver Giroud who connected with Victor Moses’ cross to bag the first goal for the Blues at Stamford Bridge.
Sadio Mane had the most vital chances for Liverpool, yet Thibaut Courtois managed to stop the Senegalese wide man on two occasions. As for Salah, he was booked in the first half for simulation on the edge of the box.
In the second half Jurgen Klopp switched the 4-4-1-1 formation that he started with to a 4-3-3, however nothing was enough to penetrate the rigid stiff wall Chelsea have built, instead the two most crucial chances in the second half were fired by the fullbacks of the Blues, Moses and Marcos Alonso.
Antonio Rudiger doubled the score for the home team from another header, but it was ruled offside by the referee, ending the game 1-0 for Chelsea.
For the second week in a row Salah failed to score and is yet to break the record to become the very best goal scorer in a 38 game Premier League season.
The Reds need to win their final game of this campaign against Brighton, to avoid any chances of not securing a Champions League spot.
