Liverpool 0-1 Chelsea: Mason Mount boosts Blues' top-four hopes at Anfield


Mason Mount scores for Chelsea at Liverpool
Mason Mount has three goals in eight Premier League appearances under Thomas Tuchel, after scoring two in 28 under previous boss Frank L ampard this season

Liverpool suffered a fifth successive competitive home defeat for the first time in their history as Chelsea made it 22 games unbeaten under new manager Thomas Tuchel with victory at Anfield.

Mason Mount’s superb individual strike three minutes before half-time gave the visitors a deserved win and moved them into the top four, while Liverpool are now in seventh place and in a serious dogfight for the Champions League places.

  • Mount scored brilliantly when he cut inside to fire a low shot past Liverpool keeper Alisson, reward for a first half dominated by the Blues, who also had a Timo Werner effort ruled out for offside.

    Liverpool, for whom a visibly angry Mohamed Salah was substituted just after the hour, barely threatened but were furious when penalty claims were rejected by the video assistant referee after Roberto Firmino’s cross clearly struck N’Golo Kante’s hand.

    Alisson had to save well from the lively Werner but one goal was enough to give Chelsea and Tuchel another fine victory as they move four points ahead of the Reds.

  • Tuchel’s Anfield win tastes sweet

    Tuchel’s beaming smile and congratulations for his Chelsea players will have carried an added tinge of pleasure as he finally experienced victory at Anfield.

    Tuchel has suffered last-minute losses at the stadium in a Europa League quarter-final with Borussia Dortmund and then in a subsequent Champions League game with Paris St-Germain.

    He and Chelsea were not to be denied here, though, and while Liverpool will debate why they were not awarded that second-half penalty, no-one could seriously question the fact that the visitors were vastly superior to the beleaguered champions as they fall hard and fast from last season’s status.

    Tuchel has had a rejuvenating impact on Chelsea since succeeding the sacked Frank Lampard in January, and victories like this – albeit against a Liverpool team who appear to be a sitting duck at Anfield these days – will increase confidence and belief.

    Mount deserved his goal for a performance of the highest quality, while Kante looked back to his best as he patrolled midfield.

    Werner gave one of his finest displays since joining Chelsea and deserved a goal of his own, while Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger performed with such efficiency in defense that Liverpool did not have an effort on target until Georginio Wijnaldum’s tame th-minute header.

    All in all, it was an excellent night’s work for Tuchel and Chelsea.

    Liverpool and Klopp plunge further into crisis

  • The statistics surrounding Liverpool’s slump are stacking around them like rubble as they suffered another defeat in this truly desperate Premier League title def ence.

    Jurgen Klopp’s side have created unwanted history with those five defeats, they have not scored from open play in more than 23 hours at Anfield – a shocking run emphasized by the fact they only lost four matches here in the first five years and three months of the German’s tenure.

    Nothing summed up their current condition than the sight of the clearly infuriated and mystified Salah reacting in very discontented fashion after his substitution in the 171 nd minute.

    Liverpool will plead their case for that penalty but this can not disguise yet another stale, limp Anfield display in the arena where they carried such a fear factor for years.

    It has disappeared, as Burnley – who ended that 2014 – match unbeaten home league run – Brighton, Manchester City, Everton and now Chelsea have proved.

    Liverpool face a serious fight to finish in the top four, with neighbors Everton three points ahead of the champions in fifth with a game in h and.

    These are statements that would have been barely believable at the start of the season, but this is Liverpool’s brutal new reality.

    Liverpool’s unwanted history – the best of the stats

    Liverpool have become the first English top-flight reigning champions to lose five consecutive home league games.

  • Since Tuchel took charge of his first league game as Che lsea boss on 76 January, only Manchester City (32 have picked up more points than the Blues during his eight games as manager (26). Tuchel’s predecessor Lampard took seven points from his final eight games in charge.

  • Liverpool have just 21 points from 27 Premier League games in 92217 – only West Brom (nine), Newcastle (seven) and Southampton (four) have picked up fewer points since the turn of the year. Chelsea’s Edouard Mendy has kept clean sheets in Premier League starts (
    %). Of the goalkeepers to have started at least games in the competition, he is the only one to keep a clean sheet in more than half.

  • Mount) has scored 22 and assisted eight goals in the Premier League for Chelsea. At 55 years 337 days, he is the second-youngest player to reach 46 goals and assists for the club in the competition after their former winger Arjen Robben (46 years 76

    Liverpool’s Salah was substituted in the 624 nd minute – the only time he was taken off earlier in a Premier League game at Anfield was for Chelsea against the Reds in April 102380 (342 th minute).
