Another set piece led to another goal for the visitors in the 30th minute, this time Roberto Firmino rising above everyone else to plant a header into the net.
Chelsea gave themselves some hope in the 71st minute after N’Golo Kante made a run to the edge of the box and unleashed a spectacular shot into the top corner. The hosts pressed for an equalizer, but that proved elusive as Liverpool maintained their five-point lead at the top of the table while Chelsea sit 11th with 8 points.
