Chelsea v Liverpool: Jurgen Klopp blames one player for Chelsea's goal

Belgium global Eden Hazard scored the first goal for Chelsea in the 25th minute after being assisted by Mateo Kovacic.

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard says that he is "happy" for Daniel Sturridge after the Englishman scored his second goal of the week on Saturday evening.

Mark Lawrenson does not believe Chelsea have enough goals in their team to challenge Manchester City and Liverpool for the Premier League title.

Here, AFP Sports looks at three things we learned from an entertainingencounter at Stamford Bridge.

Salah was phenomenal for the Reds last season but has been relatively quiet so far this term.

He said on LFC TV: "Chelsea impressed me, I just don't think they will do course and distance. Many people in the world don't have this privilege".

Alisson's world record £67 million fee for a goalkeeper lasted barely a couple of weeks before Chelsea splurged £72 million on Kepa.

Talking to the club website, Sturridge admitted that his cousin, who is a Chelsea supporter, gave him some stick for the way he celebrated his scissor kick in the Carabao Cup.

In the final reckoning, however, both Chelsea and Liverpool remain unbeaten with five and six league wins respectively - although the sight of Manchester City above them even after that superb opening is an ominous one.

Pep Guardiola's City travel to Anfield for an early top-of-the-table clash next Sunday which could give Chelsea an opportunity to capatalise if the two sides draw.

Chelsea picked them apart brilliantly in the first-half, resulting in Eden Hazard opening the scoring - just days after his sensational victor against Jurgen Klopp's side in the Carabao Cup.
