The Reds overcame a late onslaught from Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League to get over the line and make it six wins from six at the start of the new season.
Goals from Trent Alexander-Arnold and Roberto Firmino in the first half should have made it much easier for the Reds, but Chelsea did well in the second half and got a goal back via N’Golo Kante.
With some dodgy defending and suspect moments, the Reds were made to keep sticking in there towards the end of the game, but got the three points in the end.
This is how a relived fanbase reacted when Michael Oliver blew the final whistle.
My nerves are foooked but thank you Liverpool. 3 points at the bridge and top of the table. #LFC

Full time thoughts:
– Great to bounce back from the mid-week result
– Firmino was class as always
– What a goal from Trent
– Second half not great but we got the job done
– Matip and Adrian were brilliant
– 6 wins out of 6, top of the league#LFC #CHELIV

After Manchester City had put eight past Watford yesterday, it was vital for the Reds to put down a marker of their own, and that is exactly what they did – just!
