Sergio Mane’s brace secured a victory against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The second match of the season secured them third place with 6 points among the top ten on week 2 table.

Sergio Mane’s brilliant header put Liverpool ahead of Chelsea 5 minutes into the second half. Sergio got  second goal for Liverpool through  a poor decision from Chelsea’s goalkeeper. Stopping Kepa’s pass to find the ball into the net was very disappointing for struggling Chelsea seeking to equalise.

Christensen’s rough tackle at 44 minutes earned him a red card that made Chelsea playing one man down for the rest of the game.

Jorginho’s poor penalty stopped by Allison dashed Chelsea’s hope of getting a goal at 75 minutes.

Bringing in of Abraham and Barkley by Lampard did not change the score line, Chelsea 0 – 2 Liverpool
