Mohamed Salah blasted in a stunning long-range goal to seal Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Chelsea that kept the team top of the Premier League on Sunday.
With City beating Crystal Palace 3-1 earlier Sunday, Liverpool stayed two points clear of the defending champions having played one game more. Liverpool has four games remaining as it looks to win its first league title since 1990, and 19th in total.
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. In a twist of fate, City played Palace that day, too.
Chelsea stayed in fourth place in a tight race for a top-four finish and Champions League qualification, but could get overtaken if Arsenal beats Watford on Monday.
Liverpool has a much easier run-in than City, with its remaining fixtures against Cardiff, Huddersfield, Newcastle and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
