Mourinho aims dig at Liverpool and Steven Gerrard

Jose Mourinho has hit out at Liverpool and Steven Gerrard on Instagram, reminding the Reds' fans of his Chelsea side’s 2-0 win at Anfield back in 2014.

The victory for the Londoners broke the Premier League title race wide open by breaking Liverpool's 11-game winning streak.

After a Steven Gerrard mistake, Demba Ba gave Chelsea the lead at the end of the first half, and Willian capped the victory with a breakaway goal in stoppage time.

Liverpool's 16-match unbeaten streak, which had propelled them to the top of the Premier League table, came to an end with this result.

The Liverpool fans were not pleased with Mourinho's approach to the game, with Brendan Rodgers saying after the game that Chelsea had parked "two buses, rather than one."

"They sat in really deep," the then Liverpool boss said after the game.

"They parked two buses, rather than one."

While Mourinho said when asked about his side’s tactics: "A defensive display? I am confused with what the media thinks about defensive displays.

“When a team defends well, you call it a defensive display. It was a beautiful victory.

Mourinho posted on Instagram seven years later, reminding Liverpool fans: “Anfield, April 27th, 2014. Ball possession.”
