  1. Farewell for now...

    Chelsea 1-3 Liverpool

    Jose Mourinho

    And so, where do they go from here? More poignantly, where does he - Jose Mourinho - go from here?

    He's looked a nightmare square in the face and it's not even dark. Halloween night to come Jose. Try not to jump when the phone rings, it could be Roman...

    Thanks for your company today. We will have all the reaction as the day progresses. Lock into some of our other live texts now though, there's one up on every Premier League game.

  2. Where did they win it?

    Chelsea 1-3 Liverpool

    Firmino

    Just how bad was it? Liverpool played 568 passes to 421 by the home side.

    Granted, that can mean little, but the Reds were more accurate, finding a teammate 83% of the time to the Blues' 79%.

    It created eight more shots for Liverpool - with 16.

    As for stand-out players, Lucas Leiva and Mamdou Sakho touched the ball over 90 times, that's more than anyone else on the field.

  3. Is this goodbye?

    Chelsea 1-3 Liverpool

    Mourinho

    Just what was this all about after the game? 

    Jose Mourinho and his staff on the pitch in a huddle having what looked like quite an intense conversation. Was it some sort of 'see you round' chat, or just game specific. It just looked odd.

  5. Sakho leads the party

    Not sure what to make of this. It is after all just a league win on the road. It's not a trophy just yet.

  6. Mourinho in on-pitch huddle

    Chelsea 1-3 Liverpool

    Some would all it a mothers' meeting, but I can tell you that Jose Mourinho and his coaching staff are stood in the centre circle at Stamford Bridge having a full discussion. Rui Faria is having his say, as is Steve Holland but Mourinho is the most vocal. There are lots of hand gestures as they chat. What are they debating.

    Is this a man plotting what must change? Or a man chatting to his comrades about what happens with his - and their own - future.

  7. Manager reaction

    Chelsea 1-3 Liverpool

    Jurgen Klopp is asked if Liverpool are ready to fight for the league: "Oh, please are you crazy. I don't want to be not friendly with you but of course we don't think about this. We can do much better than today but today, a deserved win, let's go home."

  8. Manager reaction

    Chelsea 1-3 Liverpool

    Jurgen Klopp on Jose Mourinho's future: "I feel for him. He's a great coach. I don't think anyone in this room doubts hes one of the best in the world. Things like this happen. I had a similar situation at Dortmund last year. The good thing was no one in the club wa sin doubt of my situation. I feel for him of course but it's work."

  9. Manager reaction

    Chelsea 1-3 Liverpool

    Jurgen Klopp

    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp speaks at his news conference: "We had not the best start, that's the truth. We had our moments, our build up with short passes was very good. They tried to make pressure but we could play in the spaces in between.

    "We had control of these situations. We made a goal and deserved the draw at half time. The second half was open and we made our goals at perfect moments for us. I feel it's deserved. We have worked hard but it's normal if you want to win in Chelsea."

  10. Mourinho fury

    Phil McNulty

    BBC Sport chief football writer

    Mourinho was asked whether he thought he would have been allowed to berate fourth official Lee Mason in the same manner as Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

    He said: "I can't say because I'm punished."

    Asked what Mason said when he raised the subject he added: "He told me to shut up or I will go out."

    More from Jose Mourinho when asked 'What happens now?'

    He says: "I will go home to find a sad family then I will try to watch some of the rugby and disconnect a little bit from this then I will start preparing the training session for tomorrow morning for Wednesday's game."

  13. 'Some fights are impossible to win'

    Chelsea 1-3 Liverpool

    Jose Mourinho

    Jose Mourinho has just given us a little more and is about to conduct his news conference.

    He tells BBC Sport: "What I see from my players was good until a moment where they felt it was impossible to do better.

    "The fight goes on but sometimes there are fights that are very impossible to win. I can play against any team, against any manager, win, lose but more than this..."

    It would appear from the questioning, though we are not at liberty to say for sure, he is referencing the foul Lucas committed in the second half when already on a yellow card.  His news conference is coming up...

    Chelsea v Liverpool

    These are the average positions players took up. You can see the away side were positive, committing their full-backs high. They also played more openly across midfield than Jose Mourinho's side. James Milner - number seven - was noticeably advanced.

    Chelsea 1-3 Liverpool

    And with a brief handshake, Jose Mourinho disappears down the tunnel. Jurgen Klopp is beaming, his first league win as Liverpool boss.

    What a place and what a time to get it. John Terry claps supporters but he looks lost, almost clueless as to this situation. Chelsea have not looked this low in many, many years.

    A late change sees Adam Lallana taken off for Dejan Lovren. Liverpool don't really need another defender and instead it's Philippe Coutinho seeking his hat-trick. He jinks in the box but sees a shot deflected behind. We've played one of four added minutes.

    Do Liverpool deserve it? The balance of play paints a picture which implies so.

    It's cruise control now, they soak up attacks which scream of disbelief.

    What is Jose Mourinho going to say? He will go bonkers at the fact Lucas Leiva wasn't sent off in the second period one would think.

    "Ole", rings from the Liverpool end with every pass.

    Christian Benteke

    Remarkable, absolutely remarkable. The Jose Mourinho saga throws up another twist. Liverpool virtually walk this into the net - an Adam Lallana step over leaves Christian Benteke with work to do but 18 yards out, no challenge comes in on the substitute who eventually fires low into the corner.

    "Sacked in the morning," the Liverpool fans sing... AGAIN.

    Christian Benteke
  34. Mourinho in deep trouble?

    Phil McNulty

    BBC Sport chief football writer at Stamford Bridge

    Liverpool have been the better, more positive side throughout and there was almost an air of desperation in the way Mourinho clapped his hands and pleaded with his players to up the tempo after Coutinho's goal.

    Chelsea's fans rally to the cause and Mourinho's name rings around Stamford Bridge.

  35. Post update

    Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool

    Diego Costa in the Liverpool box, he twists and turns... fires... blocked by Martin Skrtel.

    It sparks a counter-attack and a three against three setup. Jordon Ibe has the ball out wide. He attacks his man and shoots... wide via a deflection. Jurgen Klopp is hopping on the spot. He can't contain himself.

  36. A Chelsea-free dream team...

    Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool

    Fantasy football

    Anyone go big on Chelsea players in their fantasy football team this year?

    Eden Hazard was a must pick. Branislav Ivanovic a super choice given his love of netting from set pieces. My oh my, how wrong so many of us were.

    Not a single Chelsea player is currently among the best XI players during the campaign - the dream team.

    Eden Hazard - a star last season - has 35 points, half of that of Riyad Mahrez. Yikes.

    Philippe Coutinho may have got some of you off to a great start today. Well done if so.

    Philippe Coutinho

    Scenes of joy on the Liverpool bench as Jurgen Klopp and soon to be introduced Jordon Ibe go nuts. Jose Mourinho claps, he tries to motivate his side as Philippe Coutinho slides to the corner flag in celebration - he has two, Liverpool have two and this result could have massive repercussions.

    A long ball is knocked down by Christian Benteke and Coutinho shaped to make space, eventually gets some, before firing in via a small deflection. What a moment.

    What else was going on in the UK the last time a team of champions started the season as badly as Chelsea?

    Well, in October 1995 - as champions Blackburn floundered early in their defence - Julie Goodyear left Coronation Street.

    Her character Bet Lynch ran the bar at the Rovers Return, so she was a big deal. Plus she'd been on the show nearly 30 years. Like Mourinho, she came back to her spiritual home for another stint later in her career.

    Now we have some drama. Jose Mourinho is off the bench waving his arms around in protest. Why? Because Lucas Leiva has just fouled Ramires and is already on the yellow. The Chelsea players are all over Mark Clattenburg to ask for the dismissal. 

    What will Clattenburg do? He gives the benefit of the doubt. No doubt Mourinho will remind us of this moment later.

    Kenedy nearly makes an instant impact, shooting wide from 18 yards after a good run but Ramires has a real sight of goal... wonderful block.

    A few roars go up in the away end as Gary Cahill botches a header. The central defender tried to guide one back to his keeper but caught Asmir Begovic out and the ball goes for a corner.

    Cahill hacks the ball away in his own area again - a second corner - James Milner from range... over.

    Liverpool look good here, well in the match, in charge if anything. Could we see Christian Benteke to press the momentum home?

    We've heard Jose Mourinho talk of Kurt Zouma's pace and he shows why there. A great turn of foot to hound down James Milner in a wide area before executing a great tackle.

    It was like Red Rum meets Lawrence Dallaglio.

  58. CLOSE!

    Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool

    An early sight of goal for Oscar - who looks like he will play centrally behind the striker now. He bursts through the defence but Martin Skrtel just, and I mean just, has the legs to clear as play entered the area.

    It would appear Eden Hazard has switched wide so Oscar can move into the thick of things.

    Well that goal changes the dynamic somewhat. It's perhaps fitting Roberto Firmino was involved in a small way, he's impressed, but Philippe Coutinho's strike was all about him.

    What does Jose Mourinho say now? His side were good for 10 minutes - very good in fact - but the pattern changed and few would argue that Liverpool deserve to be at least level.

    Philippe Coutinho

    Majestic stuff by Philippe Coutinho and in the third added minute - two were on the board - he curls a sumptuous equaliser. 

    It's neat link up with Roberto Firmino and Coutinho shapes to shoot from 25 yards but throws a dummy, clearing more space to pick his spot left footed from 18 yards. Asmir Begovic dived but the ball ripples into the corner beautifully.

    Jose Mourinho storms down the tunnel and won't even wait for the half-time whistle.

  69. Mason getting the treatment

    BBC Sport chief football writer at Stamford Bridge

    Fourth official Lee Mason is building up quite a relationship with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp in the technical area.

    Klopp, on at least two occasions, has been in lengthy and animated discussion with Mason - once over a handball appeal against John Terry and another over a foul.

    They seem to have parted as friends so far.

    Good ball from the right by Nathaniel Clyne - towering header by Gary Cahill. James Milner chips a cross over, no one there to turn it towards goal. A key example of where Christian Benteke may be better off on the pitch than on the bench. We will have two added minutes.

    Chelsea 1-0 Liverpool

    Willian resembles a dodgem as he evades three shoulder charges in midfield. Adam Lallana knocks him off balance but Emre Can gets the job done and after three shoulders, finally Willian hits the deck. Free-kick. Possibly the clearest free-kick you'll see today but yet Can puts his arms in the air in shock.

    Costa and Kurt Zouma - with 17 touches apiece - have seen less ball than any outfield player so far.

  73. Attacks with no bang...

    Chelsea 1-0 Liverpool

    Chelsea v Liverpool

    We can see Liverpool are bossing the territory here but one wonders how much Jose Mourinho will care. His side don't really look like conceding in any way. It's probably fair to say Mourinho's heart is yet to reach his mouth today.

    It's half chances at best for the away side.

  80. Remember when...

    Chelsea 1-0 Liverpool

    Cesc Fabregas

    Remember when Cesc Fabregas was good?

    You don't have to go back too far, 12 months maybe. The Spaniard crisply passed his way to nine assists in his opening 10 games last season.

    This season, how many do you think he has in the same number of games?

    One.

    He has of course been left out today. John Obi Mikel and Ramires are deputising well enough. Ramires has only had four touches but all of his passes have found their target. Mikel has played 11 passes - 82% complete. Not bad.

  81. CLOSE!

    Chelsea 1-0 Liverpool

    Roberto Firmino looks composed for Liverpool, flicking a ball wide and through James Milner and Nathaniel Clyne an attack is built, in comes Milner's cross... LALLANA.. saved. 

    A second half chance for the attacking midfielder, this time it's a volley from 18 yards and Asmir Begovic grasps it. A yard either side of him and he may have had issues.

  82. Average positions

    Chelsea 1-0 Liverpool

    Liverpool are certainly committing men forward, as you can see from the average positions in the game so far. In the last five minutes, Liverpool have had over 80% of possession.

    Nathaniel Clyne gets down the right flank and is positive, running at Cesar Azpilicueta before whipping in a cross which Asmir Begovic takes at his near post. 

    It's a little better by the visitors who ping the ball around in midfield confidently.

    Chelsea 1-0 Liverpool

    This is a good start by the home side. Mamadou Sakho has to head away a well-delivered dead ball and Liverpool need to be careful here or this could be done and dusted inside half an hour.

    Willian presses Nathaniel Clyne well - sending a positive message to the players lined up behind him.

    The Liverpool game plan - with such a lack of strike options - was surely to soak up and be ultra patient here. It's been torn up.

    Quote Message: It's great play from Chelsea down the left, but Azpilicueta is given far too much time to get it onto his right side. Ramires is so good breaking from deep. That will give Chelsea a burst of confidence."
  96. GOAL - Chelsea 1-0 Liverpool

    Ramires

    Number seven - BINGO for Chelsea. Ramires arrives right on cue to bullet a header into the bottom corner. 

    It's good football down the Liverpool left, the champions are patient and pick the lock eventually. It allows Cesar Azpilicueta to reach the dead-ball line and he arrows a cross onto the head of Ramires.

    Ramires is congratulated by his team-mates

    Chelsea 0-0 Liverpool

    Roberto Firminio impressed during the Reds' win over Bournemouth in midweek and hs presses well to get his side in business as they hunt Chelsea down deep in their half. James Milner is almost played in - heavy touch - Firmino has a dig, well wide. 

  98. We're off...

    Chelsea 0-0 Liverpool

    And so here we go. Half of Stamford Bridge under sunlight, Liverpool will attack their own fans in the second half. The Reds get us moving and knock it about at the back. Ramires takes a whack from Brazilian compatriot Lucas, free-kick.

  99. Mourinho better for it?

    Quote Message: The pressure of Chelsea qualifying for the Champions League comes from the people above Jose Mourinho, rather than the fans, based on what has happened at the club over the last 10 years. There have been managers who have better starts who have lost their jobs. So what if he isn’t successful this season? I bet he will be a better manager for it, even if he doesn’t get what he wants.
  100. Under the cosh?

    Chelsea v Liverpool (12:45 GMT)

    Jose Mourinho

    One thing I'd really suggest you take a look at this lunchtime is this video on Jose Mourinho's body language. What is it giving away? 

    Professor Geoff Beattie - who you may know as the psychologist once used in the Big Brother house - has run the rule over Jose's body language.

    He covers everything from the speed of eye movement to what's known as a 'lip purse'. It's interesting. Watch our analysis.

  101. One last shout...

    Chelsea v Liverpool (12:45 GMT)

    We have players in the tunnel. James Milner stands hands on hips and does a wiggle to loosen off. "COME ON BOYS", go the shouts. 

    Jose Mourinho takes his seat on the bench as the home fans begin to make some noise. What a story we could have here. This feels edgy. 

  102. Klopp's big test

    Chelsea v Liverpool (12:45 GMT)

    Jurgen Klopp is still seeking his first Premier League win as Liverpool manager - and faces the biggest test so far here against champions Chelsea.

    Klopp has been pleased with what he has seen as a steady improvement but a win here today will certainly help his mission to "turn doubters into believers" at Anfield.

    Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet warms up

    I love this time on a Saturday, an exciting afternoon of Premier League action ahead and the lunchtime game just gets the juices flowing.

    The final jogs, the final stretches are underway. Martin Skrtel stretches out his groin and hamstring, he looks like a cheese string he's so bendy.

    There's a Belgian embrace between Christian Benteke and Eden Hazard, while Simon Mignolet - another Belgian of course - just watches on with a James Bond-esque stare. 

    Back down the tunnel they go.

  105. Chelsea in pieces...

    Chelsea v Liverpool (12:45 GMT)

    Nemanja Matic and Diego Costa

    A Jose Mourinho side is normally tough, durable, hard to beat.

    This year, Chelsea seem brittle, weak and there to be swept aside.

    Can the Portuguese boss piece this jigsaw together again? If he is to, he may be wise to start at the back.

    Chelsea have shipped 19 league goals this season, nearly two a game. The only teams worse at the back? Norwich (21), Newcastle (22) and Bournemouth (22).

  106. The 1995 paradise

    Coolio

    Ah great times referenced in our last post - 1995. 

    Blackburn clocked 11 points from 10 games as defending champions but perhaps more importantly, on the weekend of their 10th game - a 4-1 defeat to Manchester United - Coolio topped the UK charts with 'Gangsta's Paradise'.

    "Me be treated like a punk you know that's unheard of..."  

    You know the rest.

    Think you know your football? According to our league table, 15-24 year-olds are out in front when it comes to predicting the results of Premier League matches this season, just ahead of 45-54 year-olds, while the youngest (13-15) and oldest players (over 65) occupy the bottom two positions.

    Jurgen Klopp squints in the sun

    "I like Klopp and I think ultimately he will be successful. But he'll need to make changes: there are four or five players in the Liverpool squad who just aren't built for his fast-paced pressing game."

  110. Klopp with no one up top...

    Jurgen Klopp is watching on as his side go through drills on the pitch. The German has his arms folded, his face is that of a man focused. While his start at Anfield has been unspectacular, his side are undefeated on his watch.

    A huge test awaits today though. Will Roberto Firmino play as the false nine or maybe Adam Lallana? This is a new approach for the Reds.

    Quote Message: I think the players are playing for him, we saw that at Stoke, and he still seems humorous in his interviews and is putting up a fight. I think he will learn from this season, but it looks to me like Chelsea have had a poor pre-season and they have been complacent over the summer. Maybe if he can take anything from this season, he should be more magnanimous in defeat.
  113. Carra and Terry back Jose...

    Chelsea v Liverpool (12:45 GMT)

    John Terry has just told the media the Chelsea players back their manager.

    Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher spoke highly of Mourinho in his Daily Mail column earlier, stating the ex-Real Madrid and Inter Milan boss had proven himself enough to deserve more time at Stamford Bridge.

    Interestingly, Carragher thinks the upheaval and controversy of doctor Eva Carneiro leaving Chelsea would have shaken players.

    "Doctors and fitness staff are like agony aunts, sounding boards who listen to the issues and problems you might have," writes Carragher.

    "But doctors don’t just look after players — more often than not, they will also help out when there is an illness in your family, so you develop a high level of trust with them."

  114. Striker-free Reds

    Chelsea v Liverpool (12:45 GMT)

    So what have these two managerial heavyweights cooked up for us in terms of team news?

    Well first of all, hear the 'false nine' klaxon loud and clear. Liverpool boast no striker in their starting XI - Divock Origi has reportedly picked up an injury, Christian Benteke makes the bench.

    Good news for Chelsea fans - Diego Costa is fit after leaving the field injured in their latest defeat.

    The Blues look strong. Who fills the striker role for Liverpool? Your guess is as good as mine.

  115. Special One v Normal One

    Chelsea v Liverpool (12:45 GMT)

    Jurgen Klopp

    There's often a bit of needle in this one, these sides you may recall built up a decent rivalry a few years back when both were experiencing happier times.

    It is probably fair to say Liverpool fans respect Mourinho without loving him. But to claim the title of being the side who ended his reign at his beloved Blues would probably create many a smile.

    And it could be a double whammy. In Jurgen Klopp, the Reds probably grabbed one of only a handful of men viewed as being in the same managerial universe as the self proclaimed 'special one'.
