We witnessed a blockbuster fixture in the premier league today as Chelsea travelled to face Liverpool at the Anfield Stadium on Thursday night. Both managers were deeply in need of a win to steer their side back into the EPL top four as they hoped to play Champions League football next season.
Liverpool looked more vibrant in the early minutes of the match as they dominated play and also create few goalscoring chances in search of the opening goal.Chelsea took the game from Liverpool as they found the back of the net but Timo Werner's 26th-minute goal didn't count as it was ruled out for offside.Mason Mount came through for Chelsea in the 42nd minute as he found the back of the net with a lovely strike to put the Blues 1-0 ahead at halftime.
Both sides threw several attacks at each other in the second half but none of their attempts could find the back of the net as the match ended in a narrow 1-0 victory for the Blues at the full-time. Mason Mount's only goal was enough to condemn Liverpool to yet another home defeat.
After Liverpool Lost 1-0 To Chelsea, This Is How The EPL Table Looks Like
Chelsea moved to the 4th position on the EPL table with 47 points while Liverpool dropped to the 7th position with 43 points.
Can Chelsea maintain this position till the end of the premier league season? Kindly drop your comment below. Thanks for reading
