[ Liverpool 2-0 Chelsea Highlights ] 45′ 0 – 1 Demba Ba
Jose Mourinho Interview:
Steven Gerrard slips and Damba Ba take advantage run through on goal and score to put Liveprool’s title challenge in the balance again. Watch match highlights here.
Liveprool needed a win to get 8 points clear at the top of the table but things got a little interesting leading into the last two weeks of premier league action, now any of the top 3 teams can go on and win the title. Manchester City have two games in hand first of which they will be playing against Cystal Palace later on Sunday.
Chelsea setup with pretty decent looking starting lineup, though big surprise was at the heart of the defence where kalas was given his very first start and his reputation will go sky high after the clean sheet performance. Liveprool started the game with more possession and more purpose but they could never penetrate Chelsea defence (That famous Bus).
It took 45 minutes for the first real oppertunity for either side to come, Gerrard made a mistake on a pass at the back four and slipped leave Damba Ba clear on goal 1 on 1 with keeper who calmly slotted home.
