    Liverpool kept alive their hopes of winning the English Premier League title for the first time in 29 years are very thanks a stirring second half performance.

    Sadio Mane opened scoring and Mohamed Salah's wonder-strike helped Liverpool maintain their two point lead over Manchester City at the top of the Premier League.

    Salah’s 22 goal of the season was a goal of the ages, a goal to cherish, one to remember, one to play again and again and shut up those bigots and racists and show what a player he is, someone they could never be.

    Liverpool returned to the summit after beating Chelsea 2-0 in the late kick-off at Anfield, leaving City, who have one game in hand, two points behind the Reds with five games remaining in this fascinating title race.

    Almost five years since Liverpool's title chances were ruined by a 2-0 defeat in the same fixture, the hosts kept themselves in the hunt for a first league title in 29 years with two goals in the space of two minutes that saw Anfield erupt. With four games to go Liverpool already have 85 points which is just one fewer than City gained to beat them to the title in 2014.

    After a nervy first half in which both sides had chances, Liverpool emerged from the break with added purpose and took the lead via Sadio Mane's header.

    There was a huge sense of relief inside the ground, but that became a deafening roar when Salah smashed a left-footed angled drive into the top right corner from 25 yards for his 19th Premier League goal of the season.

    The Reds had briefly dropped into second place following Manchester City's 3-1 win against Crystal Palace earlier on Sunday, but stormed back to the summit with a victory sealed by a goal of the season contender from Salah.

    Andy Robertson lost his footing inside his own half during Sunday's game similar to Steven Gerrard's costly slip against Chelsea in 2014 but they survived it as Liverpool beat the Blues on Sunday. Chelsea could not take advantage, however, and the Reds hung o to the lead to return to the top of the Premier League table.
