Liverpool fullback Robertson: Salah silenced abusers

Chelsea host Slavia Prague on Thursday night in the second leg of a Europa League quarter-final and manager Maurizio Sarri would be foolish to leave out star man Eden Hazard.

In the 53rd minute, moments after Sadio Mane had opened the scoring, the Egyptian scored one of his best goals in a Liverpool shirt from 25 yards out. Week in, week out, Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah are the two stars donning red and white that the papers and pundits just can not get enough of.

Jurgen Klopp claimed that Liverpool laid the ghost of Steven Gerrard's fateful slip against Chelsea to rest by beating the Blues 2-0 at Anfield to move back to the top of the Premier League.

"I remember, when he came to Liverpool, saying that a lot of the other teams in the league would be thinking they wished they'd got him".

With four games left to play, here are 3 things we learned from the Reds' clean sheet win at Anfield.

Liverpool fullback Virgil van Dijk spotted Salah on the right flank at the start of the play.

"You have to believe, otherwise you can stay home next time".


The former Manchester City goalkeeper would understandably have preferred to see some points taken from Liverpool in the two-horse race for the Premier League title and he has given a hilarious explanation for his nonplussed reaction to one of the goals of the season.

Expect them to be first choice for the final games of the season as the team chases titles at home and in Europe.

'We had a good result against them, but it's not over and we know we are going to face an even harder game over here, ' the No.4 warned.

The Reds are now top of the table by two points ahead of the reigning champions, having played one game more, with just over a month of the 2018-19 campaign remaining.

"If, for example, City lose and we know it five minutes before our game, somebody tells us, 'City lost, ' that's not a help".

Burnley's 2-0 win over Cardiff City virtually assured survival for Sean Dyche's side, meaning the Clarets will enjoy a fourth straight season in the top flight for the first time in 48 years.
