Mention the words ‘Liverpool’, ‘Chelsea’ and ‘slip’ to any football fan and they will know exactly what you are talking about. Steven Gerrard’s unfortunate loss of footing against the Blues has become the defining moment of the Reds’ inability to secure the Premier League title back in 2014 despite seemingly having one hand on the trophy. With the Anfield outfit once trying to secure their first top flight trophy since the inauguration of the new format, Sunday’s clash against Chelsea held a similar amount of importance and once again there was a slip – this time from Liverpool’s Andy Robertson. The left back was nearly left with the same egg as Gerrard on his face but he escaped suffering the same fate as the Blues were unable to capitalise. However, that has not stopped the Liverpool faithful from having flashbacks of Gerrard’s faux pas all those years ago, and they made their point quite clear on Twitter. Still, victory was sealed and the Premier League title race remains well and truly alive.
