Chelsea manager picks out positives from the Liverpool loss: Were there any?

Kevin De Bruyne was furious with team-mate Sergio Aguero during Manchester City's Premier League victory over Crystal Palace.

"After the second goal - a shocking goal in a good way for them, but not for us - we reacted".

Liverpool are back at the summit of the English Premier League log after Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah inspired them to a 2-0 victory over Chelsea at Anfield.

"They [City] win [against Crystal Palace] and [did it] ask a question for us?"

"If, for example, City lose and we know it five minutes before our game, somebody tells us, 'City lost, ' that's not a help".

For a month in the Premier League, we've known it'd be nearly impossible ... no, possible but very hard, to win the title if we dropped points. That's 85 points now, so with four games to play that means (we can get) 97.

"Good, let's try. Let's try that. If that's enough, perfect, and if not, we can not change it". And we didn't lose it here or there or whatever.

"Very smart people say "if you'd won at Leicester you'd be champions" and stuff like this but it's all b*******".

"It's all bulls**t. People and idiots bring something like this up".

"We know that they get at least two players back, Pepe and (Hector) Herrera, so they will be an interesting and hard challenge".

Three days after video surfaced of a group of Chelsea supporters aiming a derogatory chant toward him on social media, Salah hurt his former club by smashing a left-footed shot into the top corner from 25 yards to double Liverpool's lead. They played very well for 90 minutes but I think we stayed in the match very well.

"But I am really happy with the performance because we stayed in the match".

"We were a little bit unlucky for the timing of the second goal, and then a little bit unlucky because in three minutes we had three goal opportunities - two with Hazard and one with (Gonzalo) Higuain". We hit the post for the 35th time in our season.
