Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp explains decision to substitute Mo Salah during Chelsea defeat

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has explained his decision to substitute Mo Salah an hour into Thursday’s defeat against Chelsea, and insists his side’s top four hopes are not over despite suffering a “massive blow”. Mason Mount’s strike gave Chelsea all three points and condemned Klopp’s side to a fifth straight home league defeat for the first time in their history. The visitors were much the better side in the first half and though Liverpool enjoyed more possession after the break they struggled to create chances. Their bluntness was summed up by Klopp’s decision to withdraw top scorer Salah with almost half-an-hour to play and afterwards the German explained his decision. “I just brought on fresh legs,” Klopp told Sky Sports. “Mo [Salah] looked like today he suffered a bit, he played a lot of games. “I could have taken off Sadio [Mane] or Bobby [Firmino], that is all clear but at that moment it looked like Mo. “[James] Milner we bought on to wake them up a bit and keep them in the game because we needed one situation.” The result saw Chelsea climb back into fourth as they continue their unbeaten start to life under Thomas Tuchel. Liverpool, meanwhile, are still only four points adrift but on a contrasting run of form and are down in seventh having played a game more than both Everton and West Ham, who are fifth and sixth respectively . “It is a massive blow,” Klopp added. “[But] it is not done yet. We have to win football games.” Read More Liverpool FC make history by losing five League games in a row at Anfield for first time in 129 years Mason Mount hails ‘brave’ Chelsea FC as ‘massive win’ over Liverpool sends Blues into top four Chelsea FC player ratings vs Liverpool: Mount, Christensen and Werner star for Tuchel at Anfield

Kamala Harris casts tie-breaking vote to allow debate on Biden’s Covid relief bill to begin in Senate

Kamala Harris cast a tie-breaking vote in the Senate to begin debate on Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion Covid-19 relief bill. The vice president broke the 50:50 tie along party lines in the upper chamber of Congress in her role as president of the Senate. Republicans claim the bill is not focused enough on relieving the economic burden of Covid-19 and is laden with liberal legislative projects such as the $15 per hour minimum wage Progressive Democrats believe the bill does not go far enough. A Morning Consult poll reveals broad bipartisan support amongst the American public, with 77 per cent backing the stimulus plan (71 per cent when it is labelled as a Democrat plan). Breaking the tie to begin debate on Thursday, Ms Harris announced: “On this vote, the yeas are 50, the nays are 50, the Senate being equally divided, the vice president votes in the affirmative, and the motion to proceed is agreed to.” Thursday’s vote was the second time Ms Harris has broken a tie — her first was in February when the Senate approved the preliminary guidance for committees in the drafting of the bill. Republicans are not going to make passage of the bill a simple task though. Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson has forced a reading of the entire 628-page bill in the chamber. After 40 minutes the clerks had read 24 pages and Mr Johnson was the only senator in the chamber other than Senator Raphael Warnock who is presiding. It could take more than 15 hours to read the entire bill. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer slammed Mr Johnson’s stalling tactics, saying: “We all know this will merely delay the inevitable. It will accomplish little more than a few sore throats for the Senate clerks, who work very hard, day-in, day-out, to help the Senate function. And I want to thank our clerks, profoundly, for the work they do every day, including the arduous task ahead of them.” There are still 20 hours of debate on the bill to be undertaken, followed by a “vote-a-rama” of almost unlimited amendments, expected to begin on Friday. Republicans are planning to make the process as difficult for Democrats as possible. There was an earlier delay to the bill while the Congressional Budget Office scored it to see if it meets arcane rules that would allow Democrats to pass it through budget reconciliation — requiring only a simple majority and not the additional votes of 10 Republicans. Mr Schumer has vowed that the Senate will stay in session this week until the bill is passed. Once it has been through the rigmarole of amendments in the Senate, the bill must return to the House of Representatives before being sent to the president.

Liverpool 0-1 Chelsea FC LIVE! Premier League match stream, score and result as Mount goal seals Anfield win

Liverpool vs Chelsea LIVE! Chelsea secured a crucial win in the race for Champions League qualification as they beat Liverpool to move into the Premier League top four. Mason Mount was the hero on the night, scoring the game’s only goal with a terrific finish from the edge of the box after a superb pass from N’Golo Kante. Prior to that, the Blues had been denied an opener by more VAR controversy, Timo Werner’s effort ruled out for offside by virtue of his arm being outstretched beyond the last defender. No matter, it was Thomas Tuchel’s side who were by far and away the better side in the first half, and then defended well when required against a blunt Liverpool attack. The defending champions have now lost five home league games in a row - the first such run in their illustrious history. Follow all the goals and latest action on our LIVE blog with James Robson at Anfield.

US Capitol police warn of possible militia plot to breach Congress

Police are on high alert around the US Capitol after intelligence uncovered a “possible” plot by a militia group tostorm the building. The threat comes two months after a mob of Donald Trump supporters smashed through windows and doors to try to stop Congressfrom certifying now-president Joe Biden’s victory. It appears to be connected to a far-right conspiracy theory, mainly promoted by supporters of QAnon, that the former president willrise again to power on March 4 and that thousands will come to Washington DC to try to remove Democrats from office. March 4 was the original presidential inauguration day until 1933, when it was moved to January 20. Online chatter identified by authorities included discussionsamong members of the Three Percenters, an anti-government militia group, concerning possible plots against the Capitol on Thursday, according totwo unnamed law enforcement officials. Members of the Three Percenters were among the extremists who stormed the Capitol on January 6. The threat came as the Capitol police and other law enforcementagencies were taking heat from Congress in contentious hearings thisweek about their poor handling of the January 6 riot. Police were ill-prepared for the mass of Trump supporters intactical gear, some armed, and it took hours for National Guardreinforcements to come. By then, rioters had broken and smashed their way into thebuilding and roamed the halls for hours, stalling Congress’scertification effort temporarily and sending politicians into hiding. “The United States Capitol Police Department is aware of andprepared for any potential threats towards members of Congress ortowards the Capitol complex,” Capitol Police said in a statement. Politicians, congressional staffers and law enforcement officialsare still on edge after the January 6 attack, even as security aroundthe Capitol remains at an unprecedented level. About 5,200 National Guard members remain in DC, the remainder ofthe roughly 26,000 that were brought in for President Biden’sinauguration that went off with no problems. There is also a large fence around the US Capitol perimeter thatwalls off all avenues of entry including on the streets around thebuilding, put in place after the riot. A former chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee whowas among those briefed about a possible new threat against the Capitolsaid politicians were braced for it. Republican Representative Michael McCaul said he thought “we’ll see some violence”. Mr McCaul warned there could be another diversionary tactic -much like the pipe bombs discovered at the political campaign offices onJanuary 6 appeared to be an attempt to lure law enforcement away fromthe Capitol ahead of the insurrection.
