Mohamed Salah was abused by Chelsea fans (rightly banned since) in a video in the past few weeks. He gave it all back in kind at Anfield today. Liverpool downed Chelsea 2-0 at Anfield.
Sadio Mane and Salah scored within a couple of minutes early in the second half. The first half had been event-less except for a yellow card to Cesar Azpilicueta for a foul on Mane.
It was Salah however who stole the show with his artsy goal. A work of absolute delight, Salah curled in a shot from far right. It was something Kepa will dream about in the next few days. Fans, absolutely lapped it up. The man himself is humble still and admits a bit of luck favoured the brave today.
“I’m a yoga man!”
“I don’t know, I just had in my mind immediately to do this. I do yoga”
“I go inside, normally I’d shoot with my feet but the inside.
“This one I just decided, because it’s far, to swing it with power.
“I was a bit lucky the ball hit the net like that!
“I think the right back or number eight has to move so they make it so the other left back doesn’t know where they can go exactly.
“Hendo does a great job to make it easier for me, so he was part of the goal, of course.
“This is part also of our job in the training. I think it’s working well.”
