Two goals in three minutes shortly after the interval condemned Chelsea to a 2-0 loss at Liverpool on Sunday, our sixth loss away from home in the Premier League this season.

According to Chelsea defender David Luiz, Chelsea lost to Liverpool because the Blues failed to score from our chances while Liverpool scored from theirs.

“At the end they got their opportunities and they scored, and we didn’t,” Luiz said.

“It’s a bit frustrating when you do a great game at Anfield and you don’t get the three points. They have a great team, a great philosophy, a great coach, they are in the run to fight for the title, they are excited about that, but I think we had our chances.

“When you play in big games against big clubs you don’t get many opportunities to score, so when you have you have to try to score. Eden made great choices, one unlucky with the post, the other one the wind was not his friend, but okay, he was trying like always.

“We didn’t get the points here but we are still in the fight.”

Andreas Christensen, who came on after Antonio Rudiger picked up a first-half injury, insists Chelsea remain very much in contention for a Champions League spot next term despite the loss at Anfield.

“They started the second half a lot quicker and a lot better than we did,” Christensen said.

“We created some chances ourselves, but they took their opportunities.

“We’re still in the top four. We’re still fighting for that. We go into every game confident to win it. There’s no change there. We’re still feeling very confident and that it’s in our hands.”
