Before their highly anticipated match last weekend, Chelsea caused tension off the field by outmaneuvering Liverpool in signing Moises Caicedo, setting a new British record. Not only that, but they also convinced Romeo Lavia to choose Stamford Bridge over Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp’s team sought revenge as they took the lead with Luis Diaz scoring from a perfectly executed pass by Mohamed Salah. However, Liverpool struggled to handle a corner and suffered consequences when Axel Disasi scored after Ben Chilwell’s header back into the box.
Before the big match between Chelsea and Liverpool last weekend, there was tension and bad feelings between the teams. Chelsea disrupted Liverpool’s record-breaking deal for Moises Caicedo and convinced Romeo Lavia to choose them over Anfield.
Liverpool, led by Jurgen Klopp, were determined to get revenge. They scored a goal when Luis Diaz tapped in a pass from Mohamed Salah. However, later in the first half, Liverpool couldn’t defend a corner and paid the consequences as Axel Disasi scored from Ben Chilwell’s header.
Except for a close miss by Darwin Nunez, Chelsea, who had control of 65% of the ball, arguably deserved to win the important match and secure all three points. Pochettino, who has brought a refreshing change to West London, has yet to experience a loss since taking charge at Chelsea, including the friendly matches. His next objective is to overturn the concerning trend of Chelsea only winning one out of their last 13 matches in the top league, with none of their previous five.
Interestingly, the score line was also 1-1 when West Ham and Chelsea faced off at the London Stadium in February. Prior to that, Chelsea had won against West Ham twice at Stamford Bridge. Moreover, there is a talented 19-year-old midfield player in Chelsea’s team who is ready to make his mark in blue.
