Chelsea delivered a blow to Liverpool’s title hopes after a 2-0 win at Anfield on Sunday.

Demba Ba capitalised on Steven Gerrard’s mistake to put the visitors ahead before half-time, with Willian adding a second in injury time.

Second-place Chelsea have cut Liverpool’s lead at the top to two points, and here is the best of the Twitter reaction from those associated with the Reds.

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet (‏@SMignolet) urges the Reds to stay positive: “Heads up! #WeGoAgain still #2togo”

Wigan midfielder James Mcarthur ‏(@jamesmcarthur16) is gutted for Steven Gerrard: “Liverpool losing opens the league wide open but feel for gerrard as getting stick. He’s made one mistake all season #StevieG”

Former Liverpool manager Roy Evans (‏@Roy_Evo) still believes the Reds can do it: “Still got to stay positive guys even though we got turned over by Chelsea’s tactics. There are still more twists to come still got to believe.”

Ex-Reds defender Rob Jones (‏@RobjonesLFC2) wasn’t impressed with Chelsea’s time wasting: “Never seen a team waste time from the first 30 sec unbelievable .. Hope Chelsea win nothing … #notbitter”

Finally, Liverpool legend John Aldridge (‏@Realaldo474) remembers another uncomfortable loss that cost the Reds the title in 1989: “Well it feels like Arsenal 89!!but the team can still do something about it by getting 6 points!we couldn’t.Come on Everton!!!”
