Chelsea beat Liverpool at Anfield and eye second place

March 5th, 2021Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel says he is happy with his team performance after the one nil win at Anfield.

 He says Chelsea, have rediscovered all that joy, confidence that was  missing .

Under their new and unbeaten coach Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea are back in the conversation for a Champions League place.

The win took them fourth, only four points behind static Manchester United in second.

Chelsea were in charge and a goal up after 62 minutes when Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, searching for answers and looking to avoid an unwanted place in history with a fifth straight Anfield loss, decided it was time for change.

To the general astonishment of most observers, and to the very obvious fury of the player involved, the man Klopp chose to remove was top goalscorer Mohamed Salah.

Salah departed in what might be politely termed a huff complete with full-on head-shaking, wrestling furiously with a large coat when he got to the bench, as Diogo Jota returned after being absent since early December because of injury.

Liverpool have now gone more than 10 hours without a goal in open play at Anfield .
