Liverpool vs Chelsea Match Report

Liverpool vs Chelsea Match Report

Liverpool produced an excellent performance last night, thrashing Chelsea 4 - 1 at Anfield, with youngster Conor Bradley and Diogo Jota stealing the show.

Conor Bradley produced another outstanding performance, as the young right back showed why he is so highly regarded by Klopp and the coaching staff at Liverpool, as Liverpool thrashed Chelsea 4 - 1 at Anfield, to maintain their five point lead at the top of the Premier League table.

Going into the game, many pundits thought that this game might be the one where Liverpool stumbled, with Chelsea on a good run of form.  Any suggestions soon seemed ludicrous however, with Liverpool starting the match on the front foot, and never letting up.

Indeed, such was the difference in energy and desire between the two teams, that it's surprising that it took Liverpool until the 23rd minute to open the scoring.  Once they did however, they never really looked like letting Chelsea back in.

Darwin Nunez had already hit the post twice by the time Diogo Jota's persistance created the first goal, and when Conor Bradley expertly finished from the edge of box, to cap a free flowing move by the Reds, the game looked beyond Chelsea.

Bradley would end the night with a goal and two assists to his name, as he stole the show on just his second Premier League start.

Chelsea briefly threatened late in the second half, after Nkunku pulled a goal back, but Luis Diaz wrapped up the victory in the 79th minute, to ensure Liverpool travel to Arsenal at the weekend, with their lead at the stop still intact.
