Chelsea put up a commanding display to beat Liverpool 1-0 at the Anfield Stadium on Thursday night.

A first half goal from Mason Mount was enough for Chelsea to take all three points home, and it was indeed an assured performance.

Meanwhile, former Chelsea striker and BBC Sport pundit Chris Sutton has hailed the performance of Timo Werner in that game.

Werner caused Liverpool problems with his pace, and had a goal marginally ruled out for offside.

Sutton has claimed that the Chelsea striker “petrified” the Liverpool defenders.

He said: “Timo Werner has been a massive threat to that Liverpool back line – they’ve been petrified about his pace, movement and his runs in behind.

“Really unlucky to have that goal ruled out and then second half he’s caused a threat and worked hard for the team. No goals once again but a decent performance.”
