Chelsea suffered a second defeat in the Premier League this season as the Blues were beaten by Liverpool 2-1 at Stamford Bridge.

Frank Lampard’s side conceded two first-half goals from setpiece, before a second-half goal from N’Golo Kante sparked what could have been a comeback, but at the end, it ended in a 2-1 defeat for the Blues.

The defeat marked our second consecutive defeat at the Bridge after the Champions League loss to Valencia on Tuesday. However, Lampard has praised the performance of Kante, and it was the Frenchman who scored a wonder solo goal to put Chelsea back in the game, and the Blues boss also praised Fikayo Tomori for doing well in defence against Liverpool star Mohamed Salah.

“We end up not being surprised by Kante,” Lampard said.

“I have to single out Tomori as well, to go up against Salah. Everything he did today was class.”

Meanwhile, Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham was named by The Sun as Chelsea’s worst player against Liverpool.

On Tammy Abraham being Chelsea’s worst player, The Sun wrote: “Had a golden opportunity to level after beating the offside trap but Adrian saved in the one-on-one battle.

“Abraham looked isolated on his own and was given no breathing space by Van Dijk or Matip.”

The Sun also acknowledged that Kante and Tomori had good games.

On Tomori, The Sun wrote: “Made some vital blocks, tackles and interceptions in the first-half and looked comfortable on the ball.

“Showed aggressiveness to attack the ball winning 50/50 challenges.”

On Kante, The Sun wrote: “Energetic from the off the Frenchman pushed forward on and off the ball to get into the box.

“Scored a sublime solo goal picking up the ball in midfield, driving at Liverpool before stabbing the ball into the back of the net.”

  1. Lampard shouldn’t fail to notice the work rate of Willian simply because he never scored. He was a guy everywhere too. Assisting in defense, Mid and attack.
