Jurgen Klopp sets target for Liverpool as title pursuit hots up

Chelsea manager picks out positives from the Liverpool loss: Were there any?

Maurizio Sarri has insisted that Chelsea are still showing signs of improvement despite slipping to a 2-0 defeat against Liverpool on Sunday.

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

City won the league with 100 points last season but Klopp is targeting four more wins to push their rivals all the way over the closing few weeks.

"Probably at this moment they are better than us, but we are going the right way".

Liverpool star Mo Salah scored possibly the goal of the season yesterday in the crucial 2-0 win over Chelsea.

. And I don't want to minimise that but I loved the first goal exactly the same. That's 85 points now, so with four games to play that means (we can get) 97.

"Good, let's try. Let's try that".

A slip from Steven Gerrard and a goal from Demba Ba gave Chelsea the opening goal and became a part of footballing folklore - as the visiting Chelsea fans could not resist reminding their opponents of in song, on Sunday. If not, we can not change it.

"It immediately reminded me of the 4-3 against Borussia Dortmund, only Hendo [Jordan Henderson] instead of Millie [James Milner] and Sadio instead of Dejan [Lovren], but a similar situation with this wonderful cross in that area and really good team play".

"It was a brilliant day overall, two great goals, a clean sheet and a top performance really-so overall we are delighted".

"I didn't think, I just feel", he said of his 19th league goal of the season.

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.

Hazard beat Alisson Becker in a one-on-one only for his shot to rebound off the post before firing a first-time, close-range shot straight at the goalkeeper when he seemed certain to score, with Higuain also missing a chance soon after.
