Chelsea’s Twitter account has gone one step further and has actually posted the video of Steven Gerrard’s slip ahead of their Premier League game against Liverpool.
Chelsea will take on Liverpool in a vital Premier League clash later tonight.
While only a win for Liverpool would keep them strong in the title race, Chelsea could face a huge setback in their top-4 race if they drop points.
The sides will meet each other at Anfield. The situation for Liverpool is similar to the one in 2014, when they were in the title race. However, Mourinho’s Chelsea broke their hearts with a 2-0 win, as Steven Gerrard’s unfortunate slip was key to cost them the game, and their first ever Premier League title.
As both the sides meet again, Maurizio Sarri’s men will aim to inflict a similar setback to Liverpool.
Meanwhile, Chelsea’s Twitter account went one step further in their build-up for the game and actually posted the video of Steven Gerrard’s slip.
Chelsea Twitter account posts Gerrard’s slip video:
Last night, the admin of Chelsea’s Twitter account decided to rile up the entire Liverpool fanbase, and we can ensure you that he succeeded tremendously.
Chelsea posted the video of Gerrard’s slip, which led to Demba Ba’s opener in the 2013/14 game. The incident happened in the final minutes of the first half.
Jose Mourinho employed ‘park-the-bus’ tactics – defending efficiently and exploiting the Liverpool defence on counter-attacks. Chelsea succeeded twice, as Willian scored with another counter-attack – this time, in the final seconds of the game, to put the game to rest.
Manchester City went on to win the league title as Liverpool faced another setback shortly after the game against Crystal Palace.
Here’s the tweet:
