Chelsea were in a somber mood after losing to Liverpool on Friday. It was their first loss of the season. If there is anything that can get the Blues down, it’s this.
Lovren gave Liverpool the lead when he netted a goal in the 17th minute. If that was thought to be too hard to digest, what must have been even harder for the Blues was Henderson’s goal in the 36th. How can one return from such early setbacks?
Well, that’s the question Chelsea are still asking now! Diego Costa managed to score a consolation goal in the 61st minute, but, this wasn’t enough to steal even a single point away from their red opponents. Their shirts were blue, the stadium was blue and the players were blue too.
David Luiz, Chelsea’s ex-player who just recently returned to the club, played for the first time since his return. However, not even he could save his team from downfall. Well, he is still re-adjusting.
Chelsea remain with 10 points and Liverpool are now tailing behind them with 10 points also. More clubs will play this weekend, and then we can see the true cost of this defeat.
