Sadio Mane’s substitution against Chelsea was the result of a knock and dead leg, Jürgen Klopp confirmed.
The No.10 was replaced by James Milner in the second half of Liverpool’s 2-1 victory at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
Asked post-match about Mane’s condition, Klopp said: “It was a knock on the bone, around the knee, and a dead leg – that’s an awful combination. “He tried everything but I think you saw, there was one counter situation when he really tried and I would say on a non-dead-leg day he will get that ball, but no chance and then we say ‘come on, now we have to do it’ and changed. That’s it.” What Are Your Thoughts On This Reds⁉️
Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool🔵🔴
A great first half and very dominant through out, but Chelsea put us under pressure in the 2nd half and did well to create chances against us. Overall, we managed to get the 3 points and continue our unbeaten run😍👏
How good was this man today?!💪
To think that Adrian signed for us on a free to sit on the bench for Alisson & earn good wages. Well, it certainly hasn’t gone that way.
You’ve gotta respect the way he has stepped up in the absence of Alisson, becoming a hero in winning the Super Cup & now doing a superb job since coming in. I thought he was brilliant today, making a big 1v1 save against Abraham, catching key crosses & calmly receiving & passing the ball out from the back. I’ve been so impressed with you @adr13nsanmiguel👏 What a backup to have 🤗
Another masterclass from Edwards to sign him on a free & to sell Mignolet for €7m 😉
Jurgen Klopp took charge of his 150th @premierleague game for @liverpoolfc🔴
We are proud and honoured to have this man in charge of our beautiful club and what a way to commemorate his 150th game with a hard fought win at Stamford Bridge👊👏
CONFERENCE (CHELSEA VS LIVERPOOL)
We have had many opportunities, we could have scored more. Then we defended ourselves pretty well at the end. Really a good match. (Abbiamo avuto molte occasioni, avremo potuto segnare di più. Poi ci siamo difesi abbastanza bene sul finale. Davvero una buona partita.) We are only on the sixth day it makes no sense to say that we fight for the title against M. City. (Siamo solo alla sesta giornata non ha senso dire che combattiamo per il titolo contro il M. City.) We must always be ready and today we deservedly won. (Dobbiamo essere sempre pronti e oggi abbiamo vinto meritatamente.) Arnold and Robertson's free kicks were fantastic and it's also thanks to analysts who work at Melwood. (I calci di punizione di Arnold e Robertson sono stati fantastici ed è merito anche degli analisti che lavorano a Melwood.)
🔴 What a great win for the reds, THIS TEAM IS INCREDIBLE!
- 15 league wins in a row
- 7 successive away league wins, a new club record - Klopps 150th league game in charge - Fabinho’s 50th appearance for the club 💪🔴
Klopp breaking more records at the club 🔥
- 15 league wins in a row
- 7 away league wins in a row
AND we are the team to win 6/6 in consecutive seasons in Premier League history.
All these records are being extended by this incredibly consistent side that was developed under this man 👏
Liverpool are now only 3 wins off equalling and 4 wins off beating Man City’s record of 18 straight Premier league wins. Here’s are next 4 games. If we win them all we’ll break the record, can we do it? #lfc#ynwa
FT: Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool. A very leggy performance and at times very sloppy, but what a massive result it was! We dug deep and came away with the 3 points! That’s 15 wins in a row and 6 from 6 this season🔥
Liverpool survived a late scare at Chelsea to secure a precious 2-1 win and retain their lead at the top of the Premier League.
Trent Alexander-Arnold gave the Reds the lead after 14 minutes, lashing home Mohamed Salah’s lay-off from a free-kick on the edge of the area. Cesar Azpilicueta then thought he had brought the Blues level, only for VAR to rule out the goal to the dismay of the Stamford Bridge crowd. And Jurgen Klopp’s side quickly heaped more misery on the hosts when Roberto Firmino quickly added the second after ghosting between markers to power a header home on the edge of the six-yard box. N’Golo Kante smashed home to halve the deficit but Liverpool held on to remain perfect and take back their five-point lead over Man City. •
• Great win for the Reds ❤, Now onto MK Dons in the Carabao cup on Wednesday. YNWA ❤
PARTIDAZO EN STANFORD BRIDGE
CHELSEA 1-2 LIVERPOOL
Victoria sufrida del Liverpool, que se adelantó con un golazo de falta de Alexander-Arnold, que mas tarde asistiría a Firmino para el 2-0,parecía que iba a ser una goleada pero el Chelsea, mediante un golazo de Kanté desperto y Mason Mount, tuvo una ocasión clarisima para empatar pero falló.
Gran partido del Chelsea, mucho mejor que en partidos anteriores, aun que sigue sin conseguir puntos, 2 victorias en 6 partidos hacen que el Chelsea esté 11o en la liga, aun que si sigue con este juego en todos los partidos podra luchar por entrar en europa. Gran partido de Kepa y Kanté.
Pleno de victorias para el Liverpool 18/18 puntos possibles, parece que este año no se le va a escapar la premier, partidazo de Alexander-Arnold y Fabinho.
