Chelsea suffered a nightmare first half against Liverpool as the Blues conceded two goals and lost two defenders, Emerson Palmieri and Andreas Christensen, to injury.

Emerson lasted only 15 minutes at Stamford Bridge, with the left-back suffering a muscle injury while Christensen also had to go off after he was caught by Fikayo Tomori, who was sliding to block a shot from Mohamed Salah.

Speaking about the injuries to both defenders, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard said: “Emerson is a similar injury to what he had, with a muscle.

“When you do that it means you’ve come back too soon.

“That’s not a slight on Emerson, everyone wants to play this game, fair play. Those things shouldn’t happen.

“Christensen is a bang on the knee which we will assess. The first thought is it’s not that bad.

“It was a shame to use up subs in the first half but the two who came on, Alonso and Zouma, both did very well. They added to us in a way.”
