Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool as Costa scores after break after Lovren and Henderson strikes in first half, Chelsea took on Liverpool in the premier league game on Friday night and it turned out to be a classic English encounter. Liverpool started strong and they took the lead in 17th minute when Lovren slotted home from close range to make it 1-0 for Liverpool. Chelsea started to get back into the game with better possession but Henderson scored with a stunning strike from outside the box to make it 2-0 and left Chelsea all to do in next 45 minutes.
Henderson scored what proved to be the winner with his first goal in 20 matches for Liverpool. Antonio Conte suffered his first defeat as Chelsea manager as Liverpool won at Stamford Bridge to move alongside their hosts in the Premier League top four. Defender Dejan Lovren was left unmarked to volley in Philippe Coutinho’s left-wing cross for the Reds’ opener. Skipper Jordan Henderson doubled their lead with a 30-yard thunderbolt. Chelsea improved after half-time as Diego Costa tucked in Nemanja Matic’s cutback, but Liverpool held on to join the Blues – and Everton – on 10 points. Jurgen Klopp’s side have already also beaten Arsenal and Premier League champions Leicester, plus taken a point at Tottenham, with their only defeat coming at newly-promoted Burnley.
