Mount goal increases Anfield misery for Liverpool

Mason Mount scored a stunning winner to move Chelsea into the top four and inflict a fifth consecutive defeat at home for reigning champions Liverpool

The English midfielder scored the only goal of the game in the 42nd minute, cutting inside from the left and firing a low shot into the far corner.

It was his third goal in his last five league matches.

Liverpool barely threatened and their best chance was squandered by Sadio Mane, who missed his kick when played through by Mohamed Salah in the first half.

The league’s leading scorer, Salah was then taken off just after the hour mark in a surprising change made by Klopp.

The hosts did not have a shot on target until the 84th minute which was a simple save for Edouard Mendy from Georginio Wijnaldum’s weak header.


What it means

The win moved Chelsea into the top four while Liverpool are down in seventh, four points behind the West London club.


Stats

Liverpool had gone 68 home games unbeaten in the Premier League before their current demise – losing five on the trot to Burnley, Brighton, Manchester City Everton and Chelsea.

Liverpool have not scored in over 10 hours in open play at Anfield and have taken just two points from their last seven games at Anfield.

The Merseyside club have taken just 10 points from 11 Premier League games in 2021 – only West Brom (nine), Newcastle (seven) and Southampton (four) have picked up fewer points since the turn of the year.

Thomas Tuchel is unbeaten in first 10 games as Chelsea manager, and has 18 points from his first eight league games.
