Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool: Blues suffer second defeat in five days [Tweets]

Chelsea were condemned to their second defeat of the week as they were handed a narrow 2-1 loss by Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening.

Chelsea were, by far, the second best side in the first half and their visitors were ahead just 14 minutes in when Trent Alexander-Arnold converted from a thunderbolt of a free-kick. The hosts were then denied the equaliser when VAR pulled them back for offside in the build-up to Cesar Azpilicueta’s strike.

Not long after, Liverpool doubled their advantage when Roberto Firmino nodded in from Andrew Robertson’s precise cross. However, after dominating much of the second half, Chelsea pulled a goal back through N’Golo Kante, but were unable to get back on level terms in the final 20 minutes.

Kante, though, was praised for a wondrous goal that gave Chelsea some late hope, while Fikayo Tomori also continues to grow in stature among the eyes of the Blues’ faithfuls.

But, the positives stopped there, as Willian was derided following a frustrating performance wherein he did not offer a lot to his team’s cause.

Finally, the decision by VAR to overrule Cesar Azpilicueta’s goal also came under the spotlight.
