Liverpool beats Chelsea 2-1
A stunning strike from Jordan Henderson helped Liverpool secure a comfortable 2-1 win at Chelsea on Friday, ending the London club's unbeaten start to the season and underlining the growing potential of Jurgen Klopp's side.
Liverpool largely dominated the encounter and took a 2-0 lead after Dejan Lovren was left unmarked to steer home the opener and Henderson bent the ball into the top corner from 30 metres to put the visitors in command at half-time.
Chelsea fought back after the break when Diego Costa sidefooted home from close range after 61 minutes but there was little further goalmouth action as Liverpool comfortably held on.
The win moved Liverpool level with Chelsea on 10 points after five games and prevented the Londoners from going top of the table, reports abc.com - IH
