Supporters of Liverpool have this evening taken to Twitter to express worry over the recent performances of Mohamed Salah, after the Egyptian winger looked anonymous for the vast majority of the Reds’ clash with Chelsea.

Matchup

The two sides went head to head at Stamford Bridge, in a crucial fixture in the race for a spot in next season’s Champions League.

Tottenham’s shock loss to West Brom yesterday afternoon meant that Chelsea could close the gap on their London rivals to just 2 points with a win this evening, while such a result would also leave Liverpool just a solitary point clear of Spurs.

Teams

1-0

The early exchanges this evening saw Liverpool well on top, with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino both going close for the Reds over the course of the opening half-hour.

However, it was Chelsea who opened the scoring, through January signing Olivier Giroud, after the Frenchman did brilliantly to nod home a dinked cross from Victor Moses with 32 minutes on the clock.

Result

And that was all she wrote in terms of goals this evening, with an uncharacteristically quiet second 45 from Liverpool’s attacking stars having eventually seen Chelsea emerge with a deserved, and potentially crucial 1-0 win.

Concerning

Of the Reds’ attacking trio, Sadio Mane looked the most lively throughout proceedings at Stamford Bridge, with Mohamed Salah having looked some way short of his best once again.

The African wide-man, who has of course enjoyed a historic season to this point, has struggled to make any real impact in Liverpool’s last 3 fixtures, with large sections of the club’s fans having since expressed their concern regarding their star man following the full-time whistle this evening:
