Right, with that we shall bid you good night.

All of the weekend's football is live here of course. We shall see you there. 

'We must pay attention'

Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte speaking to BBC Sport: "My reflections about the game are very clear. We must pay attention every moment of the game and about details. In big games, the details change the result. 

"Today we conceded the goals in a strange way. They took the free-kick quickly [for the first] and after a throw-in it was a great shot from a long distance but if we are in the right position he must not receive the ball unmarked.

"When you want to think like a great team you must pay attention in every moment what happens on the pitch.

"We played with good intensity and anger in the second half. We scored a goal and could have scored another with Diego Costa. We played a good second half.

"I must work more to improve my players. Defeats are never good. We know this, we must work and keep our concentration."

Tom Chance: Chelsea showed echoes of Moyes-era United towards the end. No fight. Never really looked like scoring

Arowolo: But why why why would Conte be benching Fabregas?

'Happy with our possibilities'

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp speaking to BBC Sport: "It was really good, the start to the game was brilliant. We created moments and were quick in mind. We needed a lifetime goal from Jordan Henderson and it was deserved.

"We were well organised in second half. After we conceded the first goal, I can't remember a Chelsea chance. 

"We defended well and I was really happy with our possibilities today after leaving Roberto Firmino out."

'I'm happy to be here again'

Chelsea defender David Luiz to Sky Sports: "We controlled the second half but we couldn’t get the second goal.

"I’m very happy to be here again. It’s very important to play these games, the best kind of games in the world. I’m a bit sad because we didn’t start how I wished. We need to improve."

'We didn't feel the danger'

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte speaking to Sky Sports: "To find a reason sometimes is easy, sometimes hard. The goals we concede are strange. We must feel the danger and today we didn't.

"We have to reflect a lot on this game because it is important to understand the situation if we don't want to repeat another bad season like last season. 

"We don't feel the danger, Never. 

"In the second half the pressure was good. We tried and played with intensity but you must play attention to details if you want to think about a good team."

Campt74: Pathetic @ChelseaFC what was Conte waiting for until the 83rd minute? Clearly he wasn't playing to win. Start using Fabregas

John Southworth: I can understand not making changes simply because you are loosing but we were awful from start to finish. Very strange. 

'We played like hell'

Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp to Sky Sports: "It was satisfying of course. From the first second we had unbelievably good movement.  We were quick in mind. We did really well. We deserved the lead at half-time.

"We have to learn how to manage the game plan. So often this season Chelsea scored in the last few seconds with a direct style. But I can’t remember too many chances from them. We had a few moments where we weren’t so good but that’s normal against a good team.

"We played football like hell. It was really nice to watch. In the second half it was a bit more difficult. After their goal, we managed it well."

On Jordan Henderson's goal: "It was nice, really nice. He’s such a hard worker, it was well deserved. He’s such a nice lad. There’s a lot of pressure on his shoulders."

Dejan Lovren speaking to Sky Sports: "It is always a tough game here but I thought we did brilliantly. In the first half, I thought it was our best football of the season. 

"It's always good to score but the most important thing is the three points. The spirit is perfect so we just need to keep working."

Jurgen Klopp is the first manager to win his opening two visits to Stamford Bridge in the Premier League since Arsene Wenger and only the fourth manager overall to do so along with Mike Walker and Harry Redknapp.

Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool

Jordan Henderson speaking to Sky Sports: "It keeps our momentum going. We have been training well and I had a good feeling going into the game. We knew it would be difficult as Chelsea are a good side but I thought we defended well and deserved the three points. 

"It was about time I got a goal but I always say the most important thing is the three points."

Can't keep them out

Chelsea haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last seven home Premier League games against Liverpool, last doing so in October 2009.

Keep it predictable

Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool

Jordan Henderson at least manages to avoid 'luckily it went in' when describing his wonder strike. But he instead goes for 'thankfully it went in.'

Cannot understand why Conte didn't change things at 65/70 mins. Game there for the taking with Fabregas on the pitch.

'Lots to do for Chelsea'

Antonio Conte will have learnt there is still a lot of work to do within his squad. They didn't have anywhere near the amount of possession you'd expect them to have. 

Diego Costa had little supply and there will be areas of their attacking play they will be looking to improve. 

It was a scintillating Liverpool display and it's hard to pick holes in the Chelsea defensively.

Vieira151: I'm honestly quite surprised we were as comfortable as we were towards the end. Was always fearing something ridiculous... 

LFCWay: Get in! Bossed the game! Gave away a bad goal but managed really well since! Well played

'A complete display'

Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool

There's been some question marks over Liverpool's defending over last few years but Matip and Lovren have answered all questions tonight - they have been solid in that back four. 

Liverpool are looking very good. Based on tonight's performance, they will certainly be up there. As impressive as they passed the ball, it was the strength they showed at the end to hold on which stood out for me. 

It was a complete display but it's whether they can maintain that. It seems like they thrive on these big occasions but let's see if they can do it week-in week-out.

Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool

Is there anyone out there who dislikes Jurgen Klopp? So charismatic and his players clearly love playing for him. 

Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool

So far, so good for Liverpool. Apart from Burnley (a).

Jurgen Klopp is on the field hugging each and every member of his team before advancing to the loud and vocal away end. 

How far can he take this team?

Comfortable, comfortable win for Liverpool. Chelsea didn't have a shot in the final half an hour as Jordan Henderson's special goal gives the Reds the win.

THREE MINUTES added on. It's not happening for Chelsea. Is it? 

SUBSTITUTION

Cesc Fabregas to take the free-kick - into the wall. Rubbish. 

YELLOW CARD

Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool

Liverpool will go level on points with Chelsea and Everton on 10 if they see this out. But Lucas has just tripped Eden Hazard right on the edge of the box.

Lucas is booked. He's just come on...

Chelsea haven't mustered an effort since the 64th minute. They have five minutes to save this game. 

SUBSTITUTIONS

Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool

Not often you get a treble substitution in the Premier League. Antonio Conte fires all of his guns at once.

OFF: Willian, Nemanja Matic and Oscar

ON: Victor Moses, Cesc Fabregas and Pedro

It was a good stop but Origi has to score. There must have been about 30 passes and it was free header. He goes for the near post when he should go across goal.

Lucas comes on for Philippe Coutinho. Shop - Shut up. 

GREAT SAVE!

Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool

That should be game over! After a spell of maybe 30 passes from Liverpool James Milner whips in a great left-wing cross and Divock Origi is free at the far post. He climbs and heads down - and is denied by a superb save from Thibaut Courtois. Really special.

This has been an impressive spell of possession from Liverpool. Not going anywhere with it but ticking down the clock. Three subs are stripped and ready on the touchline.

If Liverpool have any aspirations to win the title these are the moments they have to get through.

Have they got what it takes to get through it? It's been a brilliant performance but have they got the other side that you need?

Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool

Liverpool have got that control back now. Seeing all of the ball as Chelsea are forced back. Into the last 15 minutes.

Yep, this is hardly revelatory stuff but it appears that Daniel Sturridge went straight down the tunnel for treatment when he came off.

The England man has completed 90 minutes in just four of his past 12 away league games.

'Sturridge fear factor'

Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool

Jermaine Jenas

I don't think it comes as any surprise Liverpool have gone off the boil since Daniel Sturridge has gone off. You cannot underestimate the impact he has - he creates a fear factor and drops into midfield to help the play. 

He came off with an injury but it still highlights his importance.

Matic may be a cross between a horse and a ladder, but he is without a doubt my favourite Chelsea player right now. Great assist.

Super work from first Adam Lallana - who hurdles his man in midfield - and then Divock Origi, who skips inside, but then Sadio Mane is offside when he looks to collect a pass 18 yards out.

Did I really see Matip attempt a slide tackle in the box with his hands behind his back 🤔 demonstration of how not to defend all over pitch
