"We were a little bit unlucky for the second goal, for the timing", said Sarri, who was genuine in his congratulations for Salah after bumping into him after the game.
"If, for example, City lose and we know it five minutes before our game, somebody tells us, 'City lost, ' that's not a help".
At one point in the second half, Chelsea failed to convert a risky attack sparked by a similar slip from Andy Robertson, and Klopp claimed the incident should draw a line under Gerrard's error.
Jürgen Klopp said he was blown away by the majesty of Mohamed Salah's goal against Chelsea as he challenged Liverpool to end their title run-in with a faultless finish. "We can expect very unusual results in last month, because we are tiring like all the other teams". And I don't want to minimise that but I loved the first goal exactly the same.
"The performance was really good but to really make it happen you need the goals and we got them, all good".
And naturally, the Liverpool fans on Twitter were out in force to hail Salah's man of the match display and we've put together some of the best reaction... That's 85 points now, so with four games to play that means (we can get) 97. Liverpool returned to the top of the table by beating Chelsea and City are two points adrift with a game in hand.
"Good, let's try. Let's try that".
"We stayed in the match where three months ago we wouldn't have been able to do that. If that's enough, perfect, and if not, we can not change it".
Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri was forced into a change, introducing Gonzalo Higuain and moving Eden Hazard from a false nine role into his usual position on the left, which brought immediate results.
