Liverpool outclass 10-man Chelsea at Stamford Bridge

Liverpool picked their second successive win this season after beating Chelsea 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp handed new signing Thiago Alcantara no grace period after naming the Spaniard in his match-day squad for the game.

Chelsea were coming from an opening day victory over Brighton & Hove Albion with Frank Lampard maintaining his squad that won the game at Brighton.

Klopp on the other hand was forced to play Fabinho in central defense due to the absence of Andre Gomez and Joel Matip who had all picked up minor injuries at training prior to the game.

Despite Liverpool’s dominance in the first half, it was Chelsea who created more goal-scoring opportunities but failed to make use of the chances that came their way.

Timo Werner missed Chelsea’s biggest chance in the game on the stroke of half time after shooting wide from close range having received a pass from Kai Havertz.

The blues will be reduced to ten-men after Andreas Christensen fouled Sadio Mane who was heading towards goal after receiving a wonderful through ball from Jordan Henderson.

Lampard will then be forced to pullout Kai Havertz for defender Fikayo Tomori with Jurgen Klopp also introducing Alcantara for his captain Jordan Henderson.

Alcantara’s introduction looked to have changed the face of the game for Liverpool who took charge of the game right from recess and deservedly got the first goal from a Sadio Mane header.

Mane doubled Liverpool’s lead after capitalizing on a blunder from Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa.

Joginho missed a chance to get Chelsea back into the game after he found his penalty saved by Allison in post for Liverpool.

Liverpool however held on to their lead as they picked valuable points for the third successive season from Stamford Bridge.
