Merseyside giants Liverpool have maintained their perfect start to the new Premier League season following their win over Chelsea earlier on Saturday.

Liverpool made six wins out of six games after the 2-1 victory over hosts Chelsea.

The Reds took the lead through an indirect freekick from defender Trent Alexandre-Arnold before Roberto Firmino added a second goal for the visitors off an assist from Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson.

Chelsea had a goal ruled out for offside via VAR Technology shortly after the first goal from Liverpool.

The Merseysiders led two-nil at the halftime interval courtesy the goals from Trent Alexandre-Arnold and Roberto Firmino.

Chelsea pulled one back through the impressive N’Golo Kante in the second half to setup a grandstand finish but Liverpool held on to take the points thus making it their sixth straight win this season and 15 victories on the trot dating back to last season.

The win ensured that Liverpool extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table to five points.

Liverpool have 18 points after six matches ahead of nearest challengers and Premier League champions Manchester City (13 points).

Chelsea have dropped to 11th spot on the Premier League table as a result of the slim win over Chelsea.
