Social Media Reacts to: Liverpool 1 Chelsea 2

Klopp’s winning streak sadly came to an end tonight and as the honeymoon period drew to a close, fans began to look at why we need the first team so much. The Anfield Talk’s Dale (@_evocatio) rounded up social media’s reaction…

In the first half there was little action. Fans had plenty to worry about with the lack of the two giants on the back line, Van Dijk and Alisson sitting this one out. However all eyes were on Fabinho who made his Liverpool starting XI debut tonight. There appeared to be a real battle for dominance during the first half, which mainly involved Keita and Mane from the home side.

The second half saw more action including Sturridge missing an open goal, much to the horror of a lot of fans only to pull it back minutes later with a well timed overhead kick. After this Firmino made an appearance off the bench. 

This game showed the importance of a strong defence. Lacking our main man Van Dijk and his apprentice Joe Gomez was crucial in Chelsea getting both their goals. With a strong defence there would be less to rely upon Mignolet for, which quite frankly would be a relief.
