Liverpool V Chelsea

Klopp sets unwanted record as Liverpool lose to Chelsea at Anfield [video] - RESULT: 0 - 1

Timo Werner thought he had scored the opening goal in the 24th minute, but the goal was ruled out for offside by the VAR. In the 42nd minute, N’Golo Kante sent a long ball to Mason Mount, and the Englishman curled the ball past Alisson Becker to score the only goal in the encounter.
