Footage Shows Antonio Rudiger Taking Man-Marking To The Extreme Against Mo Salah

Antonio Rudiger took "tight marking" to a whole different level in regards to Mo Salah in Sunday's clash between Chelsea and Liverpool.

Salah scored a glorious solo goal in the first half to put Liverpool 2-0 up in the 2-2 draw, sending Marcos Alonso to the shops and beating Edouard Mendy at his near post.

It was the Egyptian star's 16th goal in the Premier League this season and further cemented his place as the best player in the country at the moment.

However, in one moment during the pulsating affair, Rudiger could not have got any tighter to Salah if he tried.

Footage filmed from the stands shows Liverpool taking a throw-in and Rudiger literally clinging on to his former Roma teammate.

Salah has a couple of looks at the linesman and Rudiger threw his arm out in disgust as he shouted at the official.

The ball then travelled past Salah and out of play.

Rudiger and Salah did then share an embrace at the end of the game following a superb back and forth battle.

Chelsea's No.2 has quickly developed into one of the biggest s***houses in the Premier League and his bizarre antics regularly catch the eye.

Earlier this season he celebrated winning a penalty with a frightening tongue-wagging celebration.

On Sunday, he cheekily undid the gloves of Liverpool goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher in an attempt to give his team a little advantage.

Marcos Alonso was about to deliver an inswinging corner when, Rudiger, a lover of the dark arts, trotted over to Kelleher.

In a clip that went viral, the Irishman complained to the referee and was seen strapping his gloves back up again.
