Sadio Mane opened the scoring for the Anfield club with a back post header shortly after halftime but it was Salah who provided the game’s outstanding moment and arguably one of the goals of this Premier League season.
The Egyptian picked the ball up on the right of the Chelsea box in the 53rd minute, around 25-yards from goal, and arrowed a rasping, unstoppable drive beyond Kepa Arrizabalaga to secure a 2-0 victory and three precious points.
Chelsea twice came close through Eden Hazard in the second period, the Belgian striking the post before being denied by Alisson in the Liverpool goal.
The result puts Liverpool back atop the Premier League table, two ahead of a Manchester City side that defeated Crystal Palace 3-1 earlier in the day.
City, however, has a game in hand on its title rival.
