Liverpool too good for Chelsea

Premier League

Teams: Chelsea 1-3 Liverpool

Date: 31 October 2015

Venue: Stamford Bridge
A brace from Philippe Coutinho saw Liverpool registered their first league win under Jurgen Klopp and managed to beat Chelsea with a convincing 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.


Jose Mourinho's charges made the perfect start to the clash as they took the lead after only four minutes. Azpilicueta did great work down the left wing before crossing for Ramires to nod home the opening goal.
The equaliser was always on the cards and arrived in first-half stoppage time. Coutinho got the ball on the edge of the area and faked a shot before sending a curling strike into the top left corner of the net.
Jurgen Klopp's men took the lead for the first time two minutes later. Coutinho was the man of the moment again as he pounced on Christian Benteke's nod in the box to curl another shot past Begovic.
The result was well and truly secured with seven minutes of normal time left on the clock. Benteke was allowed acres of space on the edge of the Chelsea area and he took advantage, taking a touch before rifling home the visitors' third.
Here's how they lined up:

Chelsea: Begovic; Zouma, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Mikel, Ramires; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Costa.

Liverpool: Mignolet; Clyne, Skrtel, Sakho, Moreno; Lucas, Can; Milner, Lallana, Coutinho; Firmino.
