Stars As Gain Victory Over

Sadio Mane’s second-half double and ’s penalty save gave Liverpool a 2-0 victory over 10-man Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Andreas Christensen was dismissed at the end of a closely contested first half, with referee Paul Tierney reviewing the defender’s challenge on Mane on the pitchside monitor before changing his original decision to award a yellow card in favour of a red.

Mane scored his first goal of the season four minutes after Thiago Alcantara came on for his Liverpool debut at the start of the second half, heading Roberto Firmino’s cross into the bottom-left corner following a slick passing move.

The attacker then doubled Liverpool’s advantage four minutes later, closing down Kepa Arrizabalaga’s attempted clearance to slot home. Thiago’s foul on Timo Werner gave Chelsea the opportunity to halve the deficit, but Alisson saved Jorginho’s penalty.
