    • KICK OFF
    • 90'
      Stamford Bridge is half-empty now as we near the end of the game. The Chelsea fans, many of whom look disgusted at what they've seen this afternoon, are flocking out of the stadium as their side limp to another disappointing defeat.

    • 45'
      GOAL! Liverpool have equalised with one of the last kicks of the first half! The visitors push forward on a late attacking move before Coutinho receives the ball in plenty of space just outside the penalty area. He fakes a shot and cuts past Ramires before unleashing a wonderful curled effort that f
    • 90'
      Chelsea push forward on what will surely be one of the final attacking moves of the game, but it's brought to a disappointing end by Zouma, who fires a poor cross way over the head of Falcao and out for a throw-in on the opposite flank.
    • 45'
      The ball pinballs around the Chelsea penalty area as Can and Milner both try to unleash volleyed shots, but neither are able to do so as the hosts are just about able to deal with the danger thanks to plenty of blue shirts swarming back into their own box.

      The win is Liverpool's first under Jurgen Klopp and is fully deserved after they put in such a wonderful performance against the out-of-form Blues. After today's poor showing, the question now is how much time does Jose Mourinho have left at the helm of a club that are rapidly sinking into obscurity
    • 0'
      The crisis continues for Chelsea, who have suffered yet another disappointing defeat after struggling almost all game long. Jose Mourinho's side looked distinctly average for large portions of the afternoon and were particularly poor in defence, where Liverpool's impressive front line constantly too

      After dominating possession for the vast majority of the opening 45 minutes, Liverpool finally received their reward right at the end thanks to a wonderful strike from Coutinho.

      In stark contrast to their opponents, Liverpool are on the up. A feeling of hope and positivity has been emanating around Anfield since Jurgen Klopp took over at the start of the month, and the German’s new team will be looking to take advantage of that as they aim to inflict more misery on a side f

      The stage is perfectly set for a clash between two sides that never fail to entertain whenever they meet. Their first Premier League meeting of the season also comes at a pivotal moment for both, but for very different reasons. After suffering a truly torrid start to the season, Chelsea are moment a

      And we're off! Liverpool get us underway, attacking from left to right.
    • 3'
      Liverpool work the ball around well before Ramires is clattered into by Lucas midway inside the Chelsea half of the pitch, resulting in a free kick for the hosts. They take it short but are immediately put under good pressure from Coutinho, who wins possession back before teeing up Firmino. The latt

      GOAL! What a start by Chelsea! The hosts patiently work their way down the left wing before Azpilicueta flies towards the byline. The Spaniard does well to beat Milner before swinging a wonderful cross into the heart of the penalty area, where Ramires flies past Moreno before nodding the ball past M
    • 6'
      Chelsea are looking full of confidence since scoring that early goal, and they move the ball around wonderfully inside the Liverpool half of the pitch before Willian is fouled by Lucas in a dangerous position 30 yards away from goal.
    • 7'
      What a chance for Terry! Willian sends an excellent free-kick towards the back post, where it's nodded across goal and into the path of the Chelsea captain, but Moreno does well to get in front of the defender to clear the danger before the linesman's flag is raised for offside.
    • 9'
      Once again, Lucas is clumsy when trying to deal with a Chelsea attack, resulting in another free kick for the hosts after the Brazilian tripped Costa to the ground.
    • 10'
      Willian's cross from the resulting set-piece is a good one but this time Sakho is able to jump high to meet the ball in the heart of the penalty area.
    • 12'
      After being penned inside their own half of the pitch, Liverpool are finally able to break out and push forward on an attacking move of their own. Clyne does well to get down the right flank before swinging a cross into the Chelsea box but it's sent too near to Begovic, who is easily able to collect
    • 14'
      A half-hearted Liverpool attacking move breaks down, allowing Chelsea to fly forward on a quick counter-attack. Hazard charges through the middle of the pitch before teeing up Oscar, but the Belgian's pass is sent slightly behind the Brazilian, and it allows the visitors' defence to get back and re-
    • 15'
      Liverpool put the Chelsea defence under plenty of pressure, forcing Cahill into playing the ball straight into the feet of Clyne. The defender immediately unleashes a shot from just outside the penalty area but it's scuffed and ends up curling well wide of its intended target.
    • 17'
      The visitors patiently pass the ball around deep inside the Chelsea half of the pitch as they swarm the edge of the hosts' penalty area. Clyne eventually finds the feet of Can with a low cross from the right wing, but the German's first touch is heavy and denies him the opportunity to get a shot awa
    • 18'
      Firmino does well to get down the left flank before being dispossessed by a strong sliding tackle from Ramires. The resulting set-piece is curled towards the edge of the six-yard box but Begovic is easily able to dart out before collecting the ball comfortably.
    • 19'
      Chance for Lallana! Another decent break from Liverpool puts the Chelsea defence under plenty of pressure, but this time the aforementioned attacking midfielder is able to get a shot away. He spins just inside the penalty area before unleashing a low effort, but it ends up bouncing into the hands of
    • 21'
      Clyne and Milner link up well on the right wing before the latter curls a cross into the Chelsea penalty area. It's deflected into the path of Lallana, who then plays a quick one-two with Firmino, but the Brazilian is uanble to get a shot away before Terry clears the ball out for a corner with a wel
    • 22'
      Once again, the resulting set-piece fails to trouble Begovic, who is easily able to cut out the danger with a strong save in the heart of the box.
    • 24'
      Willian darts down the right flank before being clattered into from behind by Coutinho, who becomes the first player to receive a yellow card as a result.
    • 26'
      Great opportunity for Lallana! Milner finds space down the right wing and immediately curls a wonderful cross into the middle of the penalty area, where it finds the aforementioned attacking midfielder, but his first-time shot is sent straight into the hands of Begovic.
    • 28'
      Sakho is caught in possession deep inside the Liverpool half of the pitch, and Chelsea immediately win the ball before flying forward. Willian heads towards the corner flag on the right flank before being brought down by a crunching challenge from Can, who is lucky not to receive a yellow card.
    • 29'
      Willian unleashes a low cross from the resulting free kick, but it's poorly struck and fails to beat the first man.
    • 31'
      Chelsea patiently move the ball around inside the Liverpool half of the pitch as they look to find a way through the sea of red shirts camped in front of them. It eventually finds Mikel, who tries to power forward before being muscled away by Lucas.
    • 33'
      Willian finds plenty of joy down the right flank and cuts inside before teeing up Costa. The striker, with his back to goal, spins before trying to tee up Hazard, but his attempted pass fails to find the Belgian and is cut out by Sakho on the edge of the box.
    • 35'
      Liverpool scream for a penalty, but nothing is given! Clyne gets forward down the right wing before curling a cross towards the penalty area, but it's stopped by the right arm of Terry. The visitors immediately appeal for spot kick but the referee shakes his head and waves play on.
    • 37'
      Again, Clyne and Milner link up well on the right flank before the latter curls a dangerous cross towards the back post. Lucas gets up well and meets it with his head, but the Brazilian's effort is well stopped by Begovic.
    • 39'
      As was the case 10 minutes ago, Liverpool are back on the front foot and bossing possession. However, they're finding it difficult to beat the Chelsea back line, who have looked increasingly solid as the game progresses.
    • 41'
      A lofted pass over the top of the Liverpool defence finds Costa, who charges towards the byline before trying to cut the ball back. He ends up running it out play before he can do so before claiming that he received an arm in the face from Skrtel. The referee doesn't agree, however, and points for a
    • 43'
      Firmino twists and turns deep inside the Chelsea half of the pitch before being dispossessed by Mikel just outside of the penalty area. Willian then picks up the ball and flies forward, but his run is brought to an end by Can, who fouls the Brazilian to concede a free kick.
    • 44'
      Liverpool work the ball around well again before Can finds himself in acres of space 30 yards away from the Chelsea goal. He quickly tries to find Lallana with a fiercely-struck through-ball, but it's cut out by Zouma at the vital moment.
    • 45'
      The fourth official has indicated that there will be two minutes of added time.
    • 46'
      And we're underway once again!
    • 47'
      Early chance for Chelsea! The Liverpool fail to clear the danger, allowing Oscar to break into the penalty area. He looks to shoot after nutmegging Sakho but Skrtel does well to dart across the box before pulling off a vital interception.
    • 49'
      Firmino does well to pick up the ball in the middle of the pitch before sending a deft through-ball into the path of Milner. The Englishman flies forward in an attempt to latch onto the pass but is beaten to the ball by Zouma, who does well to knock the ball off the Liverpool midfielder and out of p
    • 51'
      Almost a costly mistake at the back! A lofted pass over the top finds Cahill, who tries to head the ball back towards Begovic. He completely mistimes it, however, and nods it past the Chelsea goalkeeper and bouncing just wide of the near post.
    • 52'
      Nervy defending again from Cahill! The resulting corner is flung into the penalty area, where the aforementioned centre-back makes a strange decision to chest the ball towards goal. He almost has it stolen from under his nose by Skrtel but is just about able to clear it out for another corner.
    • 53'
      Liverpool's second corner pinballs around the penalty area before falling to Milner, but the midfielder ends up thumping a first-time shot well over the top of the crossbar and out for a goal kick.
    • 55'
      Liverpool have started the second half incredibly well and are firmly on the front foot. This time, they work the ball around well before Firmino unleashes a speculative effort from 35 yards out that Begovic is easily able to save.
    • 57'
      Firmino brings the ball down well before trying to beat Azpilicueta on the left flank, but the Spaniard stands tall and guides the Brazilian towards the touchline before dispossessing him with an excellent sliding tackle.
    • 58'
      Lucas flies into Mikel and brings the Nigerian crashing to the groung with a thumping challenge, resulting in a free kick for Chelsea and a yellow card for the Brazilian.
    • 59'
      SI Kenedy SO Roberto Firmino
    • 59'
      Hazard, who has had a difficult and quiet afternoon, makes his way off the pitch to be replaced by Kenedy.
    • 60'
      Kenedy is immediately involved in the action as he flies past Clyne and into the left-hand side of the penalty area, but the youngster ends up firing his low shot well wide of the near post.
    • 62'
      Chance for Ramires! Willian bombs down the right wing before cutting a great pass back to the aforementioned goalscorer, who immediately unleashes a thumping low shot that Lucas does incredibly well to throw his body in front of.
    • 63'
      Mikel loses possession in a dangerous position in the middle of the pitch, allowing Liverpool to break away on a quick counter-attack. The ball eventually finds Lallana, who unleashes an audacious effort from 30 yards out that ends up flying several yards wide of the goal.
    • 64'
      SI C. Benteke SO Roberto Firmino
    • 64'
      Benteke makes his way onto the pitch to replace Milner in what is a very attacking-minded substitution by Jurgen Klopp.
    • 65'
      Can cynically brings Willian crashing to the ground with a clumsy outstretched arm, resulting in a yellow card for the German.
    • 66'
      And now Mikel has received a yellow card for a poor challenge on Lallana.
    • 68'
      Big decision for the referee! Lucas, who has already been booked, trips Ramires to the ground near the halfway line, and the Chelsea players immediately scream for a red card. Mark Clattenburg doesn't agree, however, and just gives the Brazilian a stern talking to.
    • 70'
      SI Fàbregas SO Roberto Firmino
    • 70'
      Mikel makes his way off to be replaced by Fabregas for the final 20 minutes.
    • 71'
      A Liverpool attack breaks down, allowing Chelsea to fly forward on a blisteringly quick run. He then cuts inside before looking to tee up Costa, but, under pressure from Moreno, his final touch is poor and results in him losing possession.
    • 72'
      What a strike by Oscar! Lucas loses the ball near the halfway line, and the aforementioned attacking midfielder immediately unleashes a spectacular effort that Mignolet is only just about able to push away with a strong, one-handed save.
    • 74'
      G Philippe Coutinho Assist Roberto Firmino
    • 74'
      The assist came from C. Benteke.
    • 74'
      GOAL! Liverpool have taken the lead! Sakho fires a long pass right onto the head of Benteke, who nods the ball straight into the feet of Coutinho. He fakes to shoot before curling another wonderful shot that flies past both Terry and Begovic before nestling into the top right-hand corner of the net.
    • 76'
      SI R. Falcao SO Roberto Firmino
    • 76'
      SI J. Ibe SO Roberto Firmino

      Ibe comes on to take the place of Firmino.
    • 76'
      Meanwhile, Azpilicueta makes way for Falcao.
    • 78'
      What a run by Moreno! The full-back flies down the left flank and leaves the Chelsea defenders for dead before cutting into the penalty area and unleashing an excellent low strike, but Begovic does well to push it away with a great save with his feet.
    • 80'
      Once again, Chelsea lose the ball at the end of a poor attacking move, allowing Ibe to fly forward before unleashing a low strike that deflects just past the far post and out of play for a corner.
    • 81'
      The resulting set-piece bounces around before falling into the feet of Moreno, who swings a deep cross straight into the hands of Begovic in the middle of the Chelsea goal.
    • 83'
      G C. Benteke Assist Roberto Firmino
    • 83'
      Assist by J. Ibe.
    • 83'
      GOAL! It's 3-1 and Liverpool have surely wrapped up the victory! The Chelsea defence are at sixes and sevens at the back, with nobody wanting to close down Benteke. The Belgian is left in acres of space on the edge of the penalty area, allowing him to take a touch before firing a low shot past Begov
    • 85'
      Chelsea push forward on a half-hearted attacking move down the left flank, but it's poorly executed and a sloppy pass ends up rolling past Oscar and out of play for a goal kick. They look totally bereft of confidence.
    • 86'
      C. Benteke is cautioned by the referee.
    • 87'
      It's all Chelsea at the moment as they desperately look for a way back into the game, but, as has been the case for the vast majority of the game, it just isn't working for them and Liverpool are finding it incredibly easy.
    • 88'
      Liverpool win back possession and patiently pass the ball around deep inside their own half of the pitch, resulting in cheers from the visiting fans, who are twisting the knife into the side of the Chelsea supporters.
    • 90'
