Relief! And praise for Trent, Adrian and Matip – Liverpool fans react to win at Chelsea

Livepool made hard work of their 2-1 win at Chelsea, but fans were simply relieved to walk away with all three points.

Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool

Premier League, Stamford Bridge
22 September, 2019

Goals: Kante 71’; Alexander-Arnold 14′, Firmino 30′

The Reds returned to Premier League action off the back of a midweek defeat to Napoli in the Champions League and Jurgen Klopp‘s side eventually returned to winning ways.

A positive start from the Reds saw Trent Alexander-Arnold establish an early lead with a brilliantly worked free-kick, then Roberto Firmino doubled the lead after heading home Trent’s dead-ball delivery – with Chelsea having a goal overturned by VAR for offside in-between.

The second half saw the Reds invite Chelsea to pile on the pressure as Klopp’s men struggled to find the needed composure to take the sting out of the game, ultimately leading to N’Golo Kante to peg a goal back.

Liverpool would hold on for victory to take stretch their winning start to six and secure their 15th league win in succession.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the result on Facebook, Twitter and This Is Anfield’s forums.


The opening goal received mass adulation for the build-up, plan and execution…

“Brilliant free-kick that. Precise and with power!”

But a poor second half saw a host of Reds struggle to exert any level of pressure or show the composure needed…


Although Matip and Adrian were the clear standouts as Liverpool ultimately held firm…

“Is Adrian playing or Alisson? Has been massive” – indianscouser on the forums.

“GOSH… Adrian is turning out to be a reliable goalkeeper!” – Lynn Chang on Facebook.


After a poor & tense finish, fans were simply overjoyed to walk away with all three points…

“First half was very good, the second one was far from our best, but…we got the 3 points!!! And that’s the most important thing!”
