Chelsea lack fight for a Premier League title race, says Ashley Cole

Chelsea lack fight for a Premier League title race, says Ashley Cole

Virgil van Dijk has admitted he is excited following Liverpool's 2-0 win over Chelsea, a result which has put the Reds back on top of the Premier League table.

Salah struck an astounding goal 142 seconds after Sadio Mané opened the scoring at Anfield as Liverpool retook a two-point lead over Manchester City with victory against Maurizio Sarri's side.

But Salah answered in the best possible way with his wonder goal on Sunday - which was not lost on social media users, who were full of praise for the man dubbed the Egyptian King as he netted his 19th league goal of the season. His touch has been off and his decision-making sometimes poor, despite his impressive goal tally this season.

Chelsea travel to Anfield to face league leaders Liverpool this weekend, looking to continue their push to finish in the Premier League's top four. The Blues are 20-6-7 with 66 points and a three-game winning streak. And I don't want to minimise that but I loved the first goal exactly the same.

Jordan Henderson dinked a ball over the top for the Senegal striker to nod home before Mohamed Salah stole the headlines with an absolute rocket.

He added: "We just focus on our games, we have a massive game next in the Champions League then to Cardiff which will be tough as well".

"It immediately reminded me of the 4-3 against Borussia Dortmund, only Hendo [Jordan Henderson] instead of Millie [James Milner] and Sadio instead of Dejan [Lovren], but a similar situation with this wonderful cross in that area and really good team play".

Chelsea fans have been crying out for years for Loftus-Cheek to be the "next Frank Lampard" and perhaps Sunday will mark the start of him becoming a mainstay in the team. We play our game. Let's try. And if that's enough, then flawless.

Chelsea went on to win the match and Man City subsequently won the title. You lose your focus at that moment. If not, we can not change it. This time banishing the ghost of 2015 as they defeated Chelsea by two goals to nil.
