Mason Mount wins it for Chelsea as Liverpool create a piece of unwanted club history

Mason Mount wins it for Chelsea as Liverpool create a piece of unwanted club history

Unwanted record

In losing 1-0 to Chelsea this evening, Liverpool have created a piece of unwanted history as they have lost their 5th home league game in a row for the first time in their 129 year history. They have now not won at Anfield since the 16th of December.

Liverpool did not have a single shot on target until the 84th minute and even subbed off Premier League leading-scorer, Mo Salah, after 62 minutes.

Whilst the injuries the Reds have suffered have had a huge impact on the team, their defence of their title has plunged to new depths and members of the media made their opinions known on social media.

The defeat saw Chelsea go four points clear of the defending champions in the race for the Champions League.

Chelsea took the lead in the 42nd minute as Mason Mount chased down N’Golo Kante’s long ball over the top, cut inside and placed a brilliant finish into the bottom corner.

Chelsea were fully deserving of their half-time lead and Timo Werner was a constant menace to the Liverpool backline and had a goal disallowed, and he probably should have added to Mason Mount’s fine strike.

The second half continued in much the same way, with Chelsea high pressing and hitting Liverpool on the break.

Jurgen Klopp said of the defeat:

Whilst it was a night to forget for Liverpool, Chelsea end the evening in fourth place and their resurgence under Thomas Tuchel continues.

Thomas Tuchel was very pleased with his team post and their climb up the Premier League table.

Chelsea take on Everton on Monday evening and will look to maintain their hold on a Champions League place in a clash between two sides in the race for the top 4.

Liverpool face another London side as they host Fulham and will be desperate to put an end to their poor form and get their season back on track.
