What Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp did when Andy Robertson had a Steven Gerrard moment against Chelsea



Liverpool is back at the top of the Premier League.

The Reds safely negotiated what appeared to be their toughest match against other opponents by beating Chelsea 2-0 at Anfield.

The goals of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, in the space of three and a half minutes, allowed the Reds to score three points, condemning the Blues to their first loss in the Premier League in four games.

Liverpool can still win the Premier League title, but they will at least ban the memory of that missed opportunity in 2014 by beating Chelsea.

In 2014, there had been the infamous Steven Gerrard – the legend of Liverpool slipped into a center back position and allowed Demba Ba to score and score the first goal of what turned out to be a 2-0 win for Chelsea.

Manchester City then won the Premier League title by two points, many claiming Gerrard's moment was key.

And there was a similar incident during today 's match at Anfield.

At 2-0, left-back Andy Robertson had the ball on the left side before sliding to the ground. Substitute Gonzalo Higuain picked up the ball and headed for the goal, but he could not take advantage of the situation and the risk was lost.

There were five minor echoes five years ago, but the Reds boss, Jurgen Klopp, saw the fun side.

According to Sky Sports reporter Geoff Shreeves, who was sitting on the sidelines of both canoes, Klopp returned with a smile.

If Higuain had scored, he might not have had such a smile on his face.
