Liverpool's win over Chelsea closed the 'slipping book' - Klopp

Liverpool's win over Chelsea closed the 'slipping book' - Klopp”

The Brazilian goalkeeper equalled the record - also held by former Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart - after preventing Chelsea from scoring during Liverpool's 2-0 win over the Blues on Sunday at Anfield.

"We know that they get at least two players back, Pepe and (Hector) Herrera, so they will be an interesting and hard challenge".

Manager Klopp said: "We controlled and dominated the game for 80 minutes, which is the best you can say about a game against Chelsea".

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

Shay Given has become an internet session after he was seen scoffing down a mid match meal whilst on television duty as Mo Salah smashed in Liverpool's second goal against Chelsea on Sunday. And I don't want to minimise that but I loved the first goal exactly the same. Four games to play.

"Let's try that and if that's enough, perfect".

There are four other players within two goals of Salah and Aguero at the top of the goalscoring charts.

So much of the pre-match build-up revolved around the Reds' defeat to Chelsea in 2014, in which Steven Gerrard's slip proved so costly in the title race. "If that's enough, perfect, and if not, we can not change it".

"I can remember, I think, someone was tackled and I was thinking of counter-pressing in the box to win it back quickly and managed to get there first".

"But I am really happy with the performance because we stayed in the match very well".

Salah stunned his old club by cushioning the ball with a velvet touch out on the right before cutting inside and rattling a thunderous strike into the far corner of the net to send Anfield insane.

"Two or three months ago we would not have done".

"But we took our time and we closed them out and never gave them too many chances, and in the second half we came out all guns blazing and finished them off".
