However, it was Sadio Mane who opened the scoring for Liverpool with a powerful header in the 51st minute to set Liverpool on course for a huge three points.

142 seconds later, Salah secured the victory with an absolute thunderbolt from around 25-yards from goal that went past Kepa Arrizabalaga and into the top corner.

Chelsea had two chances to equalise through Eden Hazard, but the Belgian struck the post, before being denied by Liverpool keeper Alisson.

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.

Liverpool will now shift their focus to the UEFA Champions League as they will travel to Portugal to face Porto in the return-leg of the quarter-finals.
