Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness has seemingly claimed that he has never heard a noise like it as he was referring to the Anfield crowd that roared Liverpool to a 2-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday. 

It was a crucial match in the race for the Premier League title and the biggest game in the Reds season as they faced a potential banana skin against their London oppoennts. 

But they held firm and proved their worth in front of a raucous Anfield crowd with Sadio Mane opening the scoring in the second half and Mo Salah scoring a stunning goal from outside the area.  

 

Speaking to Sky Sports Premier League after the match (14/04/2019 at 6:25 pm), Souness spoke about the Anfield crowd and the part they played in Liverpool's win. 

"Yes [ I can't remember hearing a noise like it]," Souness told Sky Sports Premier League. "When the second goal goes in, okay they are celebrating that second goal, but the feeling within the stadium, I can't remember when I was playing here [anything like it]. Maybe I'm doing a disservice to those supporters all those years ago... but the stadium is absolutely rocking."

Earlier on in the day, Manchester City recorded a deserved 3-1 win over Crystal Palace, with Raheem Sterling being the star of the show at Selhurst Park.

At that time, Pep Guardiola's side moved ahead of Liverpool at the top of the table and put the pressure on their title rivals, but they answered back in emphatic fashion. 

For their next encounter, Klopp's side will travel to Portugal for the second leg of their Champions League encounter against Porto before taking on Cardiff away from home.
