Premier League holders Liverpool made light work of 10-man Chelsea on Sunday at Stamford Bridge, easing to a 2-0 victory courtesy of a second-half double from Sadio Mane.
Mane’s four-minute brace shortly after the interval was capped by a familiar gaffe from Kepa Arrizabalaga, who made the latest error in a vast catalog of ineptitude to gift the visitors a two-goal advantage.
Chelsea went down a man in the final moments of the opening half when Andreas Christensen hauled down Mane on the break. VAR consultation overturned the initial yellow card ruling against Christensen, claiming the Dane impeded a clear goalscoring opportunity.
More to come.
