Chelsea and Liverpool condemn racist Salah chants

After racking up 91 goals in 2017-18, the front three of Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah have totalled 56 so far this season. Like it is this time.

Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has spoken to Turkish newspaper Fanatik about the Premier League title race with Liverpool.

Simon Mignolet insists Liverpool's multi-faceted threat this season mean comparisons with the 2014 title stumble at home to Chelsea are pointless.

Paul Merson is predicting that Liverpool FC will edge to a narrow 2-1 victory over Chelsea FC at Anfield in the Premier League on Sunday.

But Mignolet, in goal for that game and one of only three Reds' survivors along with Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge, stressed the circumstances are entirely different.

But, at Anfield, Chelsea remain the only side he has faced a couple of times and not yet beaten. Records are nice but we have to hold them.

Im not sure if Eden Hazards going to play as the Europa League is a massive competition for Chelsea.

"This is a fantastic team but it's a big month or so for us as a team and hopefully we can keep performing and keep winning to get the results that we need to get over the line". Now third in the table, Chelsea might find themselves starting the game in fourth position, as Tottenham would have played their game on Saturday.

So, Sunday's game could be set for another dramatic ending. Chelsea are one of them.

For all Klopp's optimism, Liverpool have not beaten Chelsea at Anfield in their past eight encounters, a barren run that includes a 2-1 League Cup defeat this season inspired by Eden Hazard's superb late victor.

Concerns over racist behaviour among Chelsea supporters have reached a peak with numerous such instances pointing towards troubled ideological allegiances among a section of the Chelsea faithful. However, no side since Arsenal in 2006-07 have won twice at Anfield in the same season.

"It was a few years ago, but we went there and they had the party ready because they were smashing every team at Anfield", Azpilicueta said.

The Liverpool skipper has hit form at the right moment and perhaps for the right opponents.

The three fans were refused entry to Thursday's game in Prague. Chelsea have scored 19 goals in the closing stages of games this term. It's an important game.

But they were put under pressure for large spells of the game and head coach Sarri expects the return leg at Stamford Bridge next week to also be tough.

The video appears to show them singing a racist song about the Liverpool forward.
