Hazard warns Liverpool that 'Chelsea can beat anyone.'

The Reds' last big chance to win the Premier League came in 2014 but a 2-0 loss to Chelsea at Anfield - sparked by a famous slip from Steven Gerrard that let in Demba Ba to score the first goal - led to City claiming the title.

Salah struck an astounding goal 142 seconds after Sadio Mané opened the scoring at Anfield as Liverpool retook a two-point lead over Manchester City with victory against Maurizio Sarri's side.

Sadio Mane, meanwhile, sank to his knees and thanked Allah above for what was his 18th goal of the season. His touch has been off and his decision-making sometimes poor, despite his impressive goal tally this season.

And Liverpool FC legend Carragher was full of praise for Salah after he netted the Reds' second goal of the afternoon.

Taking a cursory glance at the top corner he unleashed a stunning strike which curled in the air and flew past the hapless Kepa. City's result would have punctured belief, Liverpool aware no matter how long they extend their winning streak they are running out of games.

If Rangers are to break Celtic's stranglehold on dominance in Scottish football then Kent is exactly the sort of player they should be attracting.

Chelsea have however won their past three Premier League games and will be fired up for this game as they look to ensure a top-four finish this term.

It got even better for Liverpool just two minutes later as Virgil van Dijk's lofted diagonal ball was controlled by Salah on the right wing.

With Liverpool in a near-identical situation to their Premier League 2013/14 title bid, there were a few apprehensions about playing Chelsea on home territory at a similar stage of the season. Four games to play, let's try to make 97 points and if that's enough then ideal.

'We don't care about who can win the title, we'll go there and try to win the game, ' Hazard told the BBC (via Metro). If not then we can not change it. This time banishing the ghost of 2015 as they defeated Chelsea by two goals to nil.
