CHELSEA fell victim to individual errors as league champions Liverpool left Stamford Bridge with all three points.

Andreas Christensen dragged down Sadio Mane just on the stroke of half-time before being sent off.

Chelsea fell victim to individual errors as league champions Liverpool left Stamford Bridge with all three points

Mane would strike twice but again keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga was at fault as his pass was intercepted by the forward, who tapped into an empty net.

Here is how Simon Phillips rated Chelsea’s performers as they lost their opening home game of the season.

Kepa Arrizabalaga – 4

It was a usual unsteady performance in the sticks from Kepa, who also played a part in Christensen’s sending off by rushing. Very poor showing once again.

Reece James – 6

James was very quiet and was restricted by Liverpool’s high press and always struggled to deal with Mane.

Kurt Zouma – 7

Zouma was solid throughout the majority of the game and worked hard again.

Kepa hit an all time low with yet another blunder

Andreas Christensen – 4

The Dane was having a great game up until the 44th minute, when he made a ridiculously stupid challenge on Sadio Mane who was through on goal and subsequently got red carded, deservedly.

Marcos Alonso – 6

He was always going to struggle against the pace of Mo Salah and despite a few good moments, he was very average.

Jorginho – 5

Not a great game from Jorginho, who did the basics but not much else. He missed a poor penalty as well.

N’Golo Kante – 8

Kante was decent carrying the ball but always unsure when he got into attacking positions.

But it was another tireless showing from Kante who was everywhere on the pitch.

Mateo Kovacic – 8

Chelsea’s best press-resistant player and he was great at carrying the ball and threatened with a few through passes as well.

Kai Havertz – 5

The new boy started the game as a centre forward and again, he just didn’t look comfortable up there.

He was put out of his misery at half time when Fikayo Tomori replaced him to cover Christensen.

Mason Mount – 6

Chased around a lot and full of energy as usual, but didn’t really bring much to the table.

He had a better second half and almost scored with a long range shot.

Timo Werner – 9 (MOTM)

Chelsea’s brightest attack spark once again and his pace threatened Liverpool.

He got through a few times and won a second half penalty for Chelsea that was missed by Jorginho.

HT – Fikayo Tomori on for Havertz – 6

Tomori did the basics but as Chelsea were down to ten men he was constantly under the cosh.

78 mins – Ross Barkley for Kovacic – N/A
