Chelsea manager picks out positives from the Liverpool loss: Were there any?

Liverpool's Henderson could only watch on as Chelsea ruined their title dreams

Liverpool's Henderson could only watch on as Chelsea ruined their title dreams

"But we can't think about [the result] too much because we've got a game in a few days so we've got to recover well and concentrate on that".

De Bruyne was seething after the Premier League's leading marksman failed to read his intentions, bellowing across the field at Aguero.

A swift counter-attack culminated in Gabriel Jesus adding a decisive third goal in stoppage time, returning to the top ahead of Liverpool's home encounter with Chelsea.

"If, for example, City lose and we know it five minutes before our game, somebody tells us, 'City lost, ' that's not a help".

Salah drew level with City striker Sergio Aguero in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot with his unstoppable strike.

Sadio Mane's header and a screamer from Mohamed Salah in the second half were enough for Liverpool to see off Chelsea, who were hoping to derail their rivals' title hopes in a similar manner to their 2-0 victory at Anfield in 2014, when Demba Ba capitalised on Steven Gerrard's notorious slip to score. Then you lose your focus in that moment. Liverpool returned to the top of the table by beating Chelsea and City are two points adrift with a game in hand.

The German said: "What we want to do is collect as many points as possible". Four games to play.

"And if that's enough, then ideal". If it's not we can not change it.

"Very smart people will come out and say "Yeah, if you would have won against Leicester you would be champions". Only weak people and idiots bring something like this up". We go to Porto now (holding a 2-0 lead in the Champions League), which will be a tough one.

"But they are such a hard side to play against".

"We were a little bit unlucky for the timing of the second goal, and then a little bit unlucky because in three minutes we had three goal opportunities - two with Hazard and one with (Gonzalo) Higuain".

"But I am really happy with the performance because we stayed in the match".
