Fabregas enjoys a brilliant return; Victor Moses grabbed his chances — two talking points from Chelsea’s victory against Liverpool




Cesc Fabregas

Liverpool tasted their first defeat of the season as they were thrashed 2-1 by the Blues, who came from a goal down to win the encounter, thanks to goals from Emerson Palmieri and Eden Hazard.

Here are some talking points we gathered from the mouthwatering clash between the two Premier League giants:

Cesc Fabregas mark his return with a remarkable display.

The Spaniard has seen his place in Sarri’s starting lineup taken by summer signing Jorginho and he is being left on the bench in most of the matches played so far this season.

However, yesterday’s game saw the player returned to the Blues starting XI and he didn’t disappoint.

He showed class and strength at the middle of the park which will definitely make Sarri change his perspective about the player’s commitment to the team

Victor Moses grabbed his chance with both hands

The retired Nigerian international has frozen out of the club’s first eleven since Maurizio Sarri replaced Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge.

The only match played by the 27-year-old so far this season was against Huddersfield and he was a second-half substitute.

Against Liverpool last night, Moses was given a rare start by the Italian gaffer and the player played as if his career depends on it. He was everywhere on the pitch forcing the Reds defenders to commit fouls.

Though he lacked some cutting-edge in his crosses, Moses made life difficult for Moreno throughout the encounter.

His performance against the Reds will surely give Sarri food for thought, whether to start him when they face the same opponent in the Premier League on Saturday.
