Arsenal fight back against Villa

Elsewhere, Arsenal have come back impressively to win 3-2 against Aston Villa, despite trailing and going down to 10 men. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Calum Chambers and Nicolas Pepe got on the scoresheet for the Gunners, while John McGinn and Wesley Moraes got Villa's goals.

FT Chelsea 1 - 2 Liverpool

It was a valiant effort from Chelsea, but Liverpool were just too defensively solid in the second half. The encounter had everything you could have asked for, some great goals, a few hearty tackles and excellent football. Liverpool continue their perfect run in the Premier League, extending their lead at the top of the table.

90' Chelsea 1 - 2 Liverpool

Mason Mount should have scored that! Marcos Alonso plays in an excellent ball from the left plank, and the English midfielder blazes over from 10 yards out. It's just been that type of night for Chelsea.

87' Chelsea 1 - 2 Liverpool

This has been an excellent Chelsea response, but it has not yet yielded that elusive second goal. They've huffed and puffed, and have had chance after chance, but time is on Liverpool's side.

71' Chelsea 1 - 2 Liverpool

N'Golo Kante gets the break-through for Chelsea! The diminutive midfielder is not known for his offensive abilities, but he's come up with an absolute peach of a goal, picking up the ball in midfield and drifting towards the penalty area, before unleashing powerful shot from the outside of his boot, which sails into the top right corner. The next 20 minutes or so should be electric!

68' Chelsea 0 - 2 Liverpool

Chelsea have looked most likely to score in the last 10 minutes, but the goal refuses to materialise for the Blues. Liverpool, on the other hand, have taken their foot off the gas a bit, which is understandable, keeping in mind how physically draining their midweek fixture against Napoli was.

58' Chelsea 0 - 2 Liverpool

Chelsea are growing into the game steadily, over the course of the second half. Tammy Abraham wins his side a corner with some insistence, and the resulting ball ricochets off a number of Liverpool players before falling at the feet of N'Golo Kante, who drags just a couple of inches wide. Liverpool will want to quash this resurgence as soon as possible.

49' Chelsea 0 - 2 Liverpool

Chelsea, for once, get a stroke of good luck, as a refereeing error sees Alexander-Arnold incorrectly ruled offside. Trent's cross could have resulted in an Azpilicueta own goal, if not for an acrobatic save from Kepa, and when the whistle was blown to halt play, the ball was with still with Liverpool in Chelsea's penalty area.

Preview: Jurgen Klopp warned Liverpool on Friday to brace for a fierce fight with the Chelsea youngsters that remind him of the thrilling Borussia Dortmund sides that took Germany and Europe by storm.

Klopp, whose Premier League leaders take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, built a dynamic team in his seven years at Dortmund fuelled by gifted prodigies including Mario Goetze, Nuri Sahin, Shinji Kagawa and Robert Lewandowski.

He sees more than a few similarities between the Dortmund teams that won the Bundesliga in consecutive seasons and reached the Champions League final in 2013, and the way Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has put his faith in the Blues's kids.

"It's a really exciting team, it reminds me a little bit of my team at Dortmund years back when they were really young, even younger than this Chelsea team," Klopp said.

"People always talked about how young they are but they only played because they were that good, they didn't play because they were that young."

"They brought in Christian Pulisic in the summer and all the players around him have the same value — Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount, (Callum) Hudson-Odoi."

"A good team, all my respect. They are a proper contender for pretty much everything."

Academy graduates Abraham, Mount and Fikayo Tomori have all enjoyed strong starts to Lampard's first season in charge, with Chelsea's transfer ban forcing their new manager to give the youngsters an opportunity that was hard to come by in previous years of big spending by the Blues.

Abraham already has seven goals this season, while Mount is hopeful of featuring this weekend after recovering from an ankle injury suffered in Tuesday's Champions League defeat against Valencia.

Liverpool head to Chelsea having won all of their opening five league matches but with only one away win against top-six opponents in their previous 12 attempts.

Despite his praise for Chelsea's young tyros, Klopp must fancy his chances of ending that frustrating streak against a team still looking for their first home win under Lampard.

Liverpool had their own midweek blip in the Champions League, with a 2-0 loss at Napoli bringing the holders back down to earth after their superb start to the domestic season.

But Klopp's team sit five points clear of champions Manchester City thanks to their perfect start. The Reds have already beaten Chelsea on penalties to win the European Super Cup after a 2-2 draw in Istanbul in August.

"There are different ways to win away games and we have to find one that works for us," Klopp said. "We go there to get a result, you can't go to Chelsea and have a guarantee that you are going to win the game, they are just too strong for that."

"I think in 2016, we won against all of the top six and had all of the problems. Now we are much more successful in winning all the other games."

While Liverpool are sighting a first English title since 1990, Lampard knows Chelsea are likely to have to settle for a top-four challenge following the transfer ban and close-season departure of Eden Hazard to Real Madrid.

Continuing the development of Abraham, 21, Mount, 20, and company is essential to Chelsea's progress and Lampard is eager for Mount to face Liverpool to further his education.

"He has got a chance. We saw the image of the tackle which made it look really bad. Hopefully, it is not so bad," Lampard said.

"We are trying, the good thing about Mason is his attitude is so good that he will give everything to play for this club. We will have every opportunity to try to get him there."
