BBC Match from the Day pundit Alan Shearer has to social media site Twitter as a way to praise Liverpool following their excellent 3-1 victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Jurgen Klopp headed into your game still searching for his first Premier League win, having drawn his previous two matches 0-0 and 1-1 against Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton respectively.
Chelsea, despite vastly underperforming this holiday season, remained as tough opponents and took the lead after just four minutes as Ramires took benefit of a lapse in Liverpool concentration within the.
However, the Reds were undoubtedly better side after that and two goals from Philippe Coutinho as well as a late effort from substitute Christian Benteke gave them a deserved win.
Writing on Twitter with the full-time whistle, Shearer was packed with praise to the visitors but wasn’t so kind when commenting on Chelsea, stating what sort of Blues lacked energy and spark.
While the 3-1 victory was only reward to get a dominant Liverpool performance, there have been key moments within the match that may have altered proceedings somewhat.
Coutinho’s equaliser came inside the third minute of first-half stoppage time, yet it turned out his Brazilian teammate Lucas Leiva who has been the centre on the game’s biggest talking point.
Already using a yellow card, he somehow escaped a red carrying out a late tackle midway over the second period using the scores at 1-1 – a second to cause Jose Mourinho yet more frustration.
It does, however, mask over that which was yet another poor display from your hosts whereas the Merseysiders, alternatively, are starting to look some force under their new manager.
