Jurgen Klopp overjoyed as Liverpool make it six wins from six with victory at Chelsea, Frank Lampard endures tough afternoon

Liverpool had a fantastic day out in London on Sunday as Jurgen Klopp’s men beat Chelsea 2-1 to make it six wins from six at the start of the Premier League season.

For Frank Lampard however, it was a difficult afternoon with his side being beaten and encountering fresh injury problems.

The match started brightly for Chelsea as fans were overjoyed to see Mason Mount, N’Golo Kante and Emerson all starting despite injury issues.

Emerson picked up a thigh strain during the last international break with Italy and, while it appeared he was ready to reclaim his place in the Chelsea side on Sunday, it quickly became apparent that this was not the case.

The 25-year-old complained of issues early into the game and was swiftly replaced by Marcos Alonso after Liverpool took the lead on the quarter-hour mark

It was a fantastic free-kick routine that put Jurgen Klopp’s side ahead as Mo Salah teed up Trent Alexander-Arnold who rifled home into the top corner from just outside the Blues’ penalty area.
