Liverpool were defeated 1-0 away to Chelsea in the English Premier League on Sunday, the third consecutive top-flight match they’ve failed to win.
Their battle to finish in the top four will now likely go to the last day, with Brighton & Hove Albion due to visit Anfield.
Olivier Giroud’s goal was enough to give the Blues the three points, with Liverpool’s attacking talent failing to have an impact on the game whatsoever.
Mohamed Salah was unusually quiet and after an phenomenal 42-goal season has now failed to net or assist in his last three matches.
It’s not something that Liverpool fans should be particularly worried about of course, but they are hoping he can show improvement against Real Madrid in the upcoming UEFA Champions League final.
The Reds are so close to a historic season and just need to produce one last impressive performance.
Fans took to Twitter to discuss Salah’s Sunday display…

Okay so Salah is having a few quiet games, I'm pretty sure he can be forgiven for that. Let's face it he's been on absolute fire all season & without him the season would probably be very different. All the best players are due a few quiet games now and again #LFC

We have a full week rest, Brighton don’t. We have something to play for, Brighton don’t. Salah to break the record with a comfortable win #LFC

Liverpool have ran out of steam especially Salah but surely we can beat Brighton at home and we got one more big game in us for the Champions league Final

Salah is either knackered these last few games or has lost all confidence. Just doesnt seem the same player as a few weeks ago. Hope he can turn it round

Salah was completely out of the game today…hope he doesn't perform like this against Real Madrid.
