EPL By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 14/04/2019
One goal each from Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah fire Liverpool to a 2-1 win over Chelsea on Sunday at the Anfield in the Premier League.The first opportunity of the game fell in the leg of Mohammed Salah but Kepa Arizabalaga was at the right spot to make a save.The game was marred with much physicality in the opening 10 minutes as both teams played an end to end attacking game. Liverpool had more ball possession in the 15 minutes, the two teams were fired up for the game as they know what is at stake if any of them failed to claim the three points at the end of the game.Chelsea had some decent moment to create a goal but their passes were not measured accurately. Willian almost broke the deadlock from a counter attacker after he was released from deep by David Luiz but his effort went wide off the target.Sadio Mane blasted a chance to put Liverpool ahead in the 37th minute after a nice move from Salah. Antonio Rudiger was forced off after he sustained an injury with five minutes to end the first half, he was immediately replaced by Andreas Christensen.Liverpool broke the deadlock in the 51st minute after Jordan Henderson cross met Mane in the other end of the pole, the Senegalese forward nodded the ball into the net.
