EPL: Liverpool stuns Chelsea at home



EPL: Liverpool battle back to beat Burnley 2-1

Liverpool duo, Dejan Lovren and Jordan Henderson goals on Friday halt Chelsea’s 100 per cent performance in the 2016-2017 Premier League at Stamford Bridge with a 2 – 1 defeat.

The formidable midfield bossed the game from the start and in the 17th minute Philippe Coutinho launched the ball towards a clutch of unmarked Liverpool players at the far post.

Lovren ran in from deep to volley home with the Chelsea defence static.

Then a glorious piece of skill in the 36th minute underlined Liverpool’s superiority.

An attempted clearance from defender Gary Cahill fell to Henderson 30 metres out and the midfielder dipped a shot into the top corner of the net past the leaping Thibaut Courtois.

Chelsea looked brighter in the second half and got one back when the Premier League’s top scorer Diego Costa was on hand to prod the ball into the net from a goal-line Nemanja Matic pass in the 61st minute for his fifth of the season.
