Chelsea succumbed to a 2-0 defeat away at Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.
The Blues headed into the fixture on the back of four consecutive wins in all competitions.
However, they were no match for Jurgen Klopp’s men, who jumped back up to the top of the Premier League table after Manchester City defeated Crystal Palace in the earlier kick-off.
Sadio Mane opened the scoring for Liverpool after some good work down the right-hand side from Jordan Henderson, who operated in a more advanced role.
Mohamed Salah subsequently extended the hosts’ lead. The former Chelsea man cut in from the right to drive a thunderous effort beyond the reach of Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Eden Hazard had two clear chances to get the Blues back in the game but was unable to convert.
Take a look at our player ratings from Chelsea’s loss at Anfield.
Kepa Arrizabalaga - 7
Solid when called upon. Had no chance with either of Liverpool’s goals as Chelsea paid the price for lackadaisical defending.
Cesar Azpilicueta - 5
Azpilicueta had a tough time down the right-hand side and struggled to contain Mane.
Antonio Rudiger - 7
Rudiger was having an impressive match until a knee injury saw him replaced by Andreas Christensen.
David Luiz - 6
Occasionally lacked composure and had a rather indifferent game for Chelsea at Anfield.
Emerson Palmieri - 6
Worked hard but was unable to truly stifle Salah, who stole the show.
Jorginho - 6
Struggled to break the lines with his passes but kept Chelsea’s play ticking over in the middle.
N'Golo Kante - 7
Looked more at ease in a deeper midfield role and was tenacious in the challenge throughout.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek - 7
His final ball was lacking but Loftus-Cheek used his physical presence to impose himself on the Liverpool defence.
Callum Hudson-Odoi - 5
The youngster made some nice touches but appeared restricted, as he failed to get himself involved in the match.
Willian - 5
Seldom gave the Liverpool defence problems, and drifted in and out of the game.
Eden Hazard - 6
Found space expertly and was a constant threat. However, he spurned two gilt-edged chances, and the game could have been far different if Hazard had been more clinical.
Andreas Christensen – 6: Came on for Rudiger and was reasonably solid in a rare Premier League appearance.
Gonzalo Higuain – 4: Painfully slow. Failed to make any sort of impact.
Ross Barkley – 5: Couldn’t involve himself in the match as the game drew to a close.
