Mohamed Salah

Goals from Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah sent Liverpool back to the top of the Premier League after a 2-0 victory over Chelsea on Sunday in manager Jurgen Klopp's 200th game in charge.

Salah's stupendous second goal ensured Liverpool's dreams of a first English league title in 29 years remained on course.

Liverpool lead defending champions Manchester City -- who briefly went top earlier on Sunday with a win over Crystal Palace -- by two points, although City have a game in hand.
