Martin Skrtel gave the visitors a third minute lead, but goals from Eden Hazard and Samuel Eto’o turned things around for the Blues before half-time.

Despite two consecutive defeats, manager Brendan Rodgers remained upbeat about his side’s title chances, telling BBC Sport, “There’s no reason why we can’t be challenging. The most important thing for us is that we’re in the conversation.”

Reds fans have taken to Twitter to discuss the side’s performance at Stamford Bridge yesterday, and some questionable decisions by referee Howard Webb.
