Google News Icon

Chelsea faced Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool for the first time since Antonio Conte took over the reins at Chelsea. After drawing their last game against Swansea, Chelsea had a the pressure to win their game against Liverpool to keep their place in top 4. Antonio Conte suffered his first defeat as the Chelsea manager on Saturday night as goals from Dejan Lovern and Jordan Henderson were enough for the Scousers to knick past the Blues and give them their first blow of the season.

David Luiz started his first game for Chelsea in his second stint at the club due to John Terry’s injury. Conte said ahead of the game that the Reds were “the worst team” to face at the moment and he was proved right as the visitors ran roughshod over the Blues defence during the opening 45 minutes at Stamford Bridge, eventually securing a well-deserved 2-1 win.

We look at how the Chelsea player performed in their 2-1 defeat to Liverpool.

Thibault Courtois – 6/10

Looked dodgy at times, fumbled the ball at times. Got exposed for the first goal and was nowhere near the second. Good save near the end.

Branislav Ivanovic – 5/10

His place in the team is already under scrutiny and with the kind of lethargic performance from the right-back who never looked comfortable on the night, he might have to make way for new boy Marco Alonso.

Gary Cahill – 5/10

Needed to take charge at the back I’m the absence of captain John Terry but he looked all over the place and left the spaces at the back.

David Luiz – 5/10

Not the kind of second debut he would’ve expected as he was given a torrid time from Liverpool forward who twisted him all over.

Cesar Azpilicueta – 5/10

He went missing for the first goal, gave away the space for Lovrn to score te goal. Also had a hard time dealing with Mane.

N’Golo Kante – 6/10

He looked to running all over the pitch but was unable to do his job of breaking up the play and that was the reason Liverpool were keeping enough of the ball.

Nemanja Matic – 6/10

Was sloppy in possession during the first half, but his intervention set up Costa’s goal.

Willian – 6/10

Again the workhorse, did his job well but wasn’t supported enough by Chelsea midfielders

Oscar – 5/10

He looked lost on the pitch and was too clumsy at times.

Eden Hazard – 6/10

The Belgian was given a hard time by Nathaniel Clyne and he could hardly do anything during the whole 90 minutes.

Diego Costa – 7/10

Hardly was fed enough but scored his fifth goal of the season.

Substitutes:

Victor Moses – 5/10

Too late to affect the game.

Cesc Fabregas – 5/10

Came very late in the game to do anything to change the game.

Pedro – 4.5/10

Had no effect.
