Liverpool Beat Chelsea 2-0 To Return To The Top Of The Premier League
Liverpool have returned to the top of the Premier League after beating Chelsea 2-0 at Anfield.
After a goalless first-half, the hosts opened the scoring thanks to Sadio Mane who headed home from a Jordan Henderson cross in the 51st minute.
