Liverpool beats Chelsea 2-1 in English Premier League

first_imgLONDON (AP) — Liverpool ended Chelsea’s unbeaten start in the English Premier League with a rousing 2-1 win on Friday.Keen to establish a high level of consistency, Liverpool backed up a 4-1 win over titleholder Leicester by outclassing Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, where the visitors posted consecutive wins for only the second time in 40 years.Liverpool, more energetic and inventive, was 2-0 up in about half an hour and controlled proceedings for an hour. Not until a leaping Diego Costa volleyed in a pop-up pass from Nemanja Matic to put Chelsea on the scoreboard did the match begin to feel competitive.But not for long, as Liverpool weathered Chelsea briefly coming out of its slumber, and returned to smothering the Blues.Only Manchester City and Everton remain unbeaten in the league. Chelsea dropped to third and Liverpool rose to provisional fourth to start the fifth round.“It’s a big victory, it keeps our momentum going,” captain Jordan Henderson said. “We defended excellently, and deserved the three points. It gives good confidence.”Having already beaten last season’s league champion and runner-up, Liverpool’s third win in five games makes the second-round loss to promoted Burnley even more confounding. On Juergen Klopp’s watch, Liverpool has been strong against Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham, and the Manchester clubs, remaining unbeaten in six away games against them, and losing only once in 11 matches.London has been especially welcoming for Liverpool in the first month, with wins at Chelsea and Arsenal, and a draw at Tottenham.Reds defenders Dejan Lovren, Joel Matip, James Milner, and Nathaniel Clyne ensured Costa and Eden Hazard were virtually non-entities in Chelsea’s first Friday night game in 14 years.Lovren was so comfortable that he even scored the opener. Given a free kick conceded by Chelsea stand-in captain Branislav Ivanovic on the left sideline, Liverpool eventually gave the ball to Philippe Coutinho, who spotted Lovren and two more teammates unmarked at the far post.Coutinho’s expertly weighted cross fell perfectly in front of Lovren to practically roll in past Thibaut Courtois.It became 2-0 with a cracking goal from Henderson. He accepted a clearance from Chelsea on the left side of the box, had time to sight the posts, and unleashed a dipping shot into the top right corner of the goal.Chelsea, sure to have been blasted at halftime by manager Antonio Conte, started the second spell better, with Matic getting in behind the defense, tiptoeing along the byline, and dinking the ball inside for a leaping Costa to volley in his league-leading fifth goal in five games.But Chelsea never threatened again, as shots clattered off the legs of Liverpool defenders.Only the relentless N’Golo Kante, in midfield, gave Liverpool trouble. And the second Chelsea debut for expensive defender David Luiz finished like his first in 2011, a home loss to Liverpool. But on a night when he got his nose bloodied in a clash of heads, he couldn’t be faulted for Chelsea’s failings at the back.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

FortisTCI says exploration for cheaper electricity bills still underway as fuel factor

This reflects a 47% decrease in the past eight months according to Fortis. Recommended for you Rave Reviews for National Science Fair ideaslast_img read more

Derrick Kellier, says the Government is committed to ensuring the survival of the sugar industry.Speaking recently in Falmouth, Trelawny, Minister Kellier noted that sector is facing challenges, which include fall in prices, and factory closure, which have resulted in the displacement of workers.He said the Government will continue to work with industry stakeholders to address the difficulties and ensure that stability is returned to the sector in the shortest possible time.“It is a difficult time for sugar and we must face it, but all is not lost. We have to strategise now that our back is against the wall,” he noted.The Minister said the plans going forward include “transforming the industry from a sugar industry to a sugarcane industry” with a focus on multiple products such as raw sugar, molasses, refined sugar, and ethanol.“We need to look at the by-products that we can garner from the sugar cane; the bagasse that we will use to generate energy as a renewable resource, the production of ethanol…so that we can earn from other sources,” he pointed.Minister Kellier said the packaging of sugar for the retail trade represents a step in the right direction and the sector must now focus on marketing to the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).“Our call as a Government is that the entire sugar industry in Jamaica must now turn its marketing focus to CARICOM, which consumes some 300,000 tonnes of refined sugar annually, but which has no refining capacity,” Minister Kellier said. He noted that the Government will continue to provide critical infrastructure such as roads.“Right now we are committed to rehabilitating the road from Drumally to Maroon Town right through Elderslie to Maggotty to facilitate the transport of sugar cane to the Appleton Factory,” he said.He noted further that a team from the Ministry has been working with Everglades Farms “to explore and finalise other income streams for the operation of Long Pond/Hampden with a view of setting the stage for reopening the factory as soon as possible.”last_img read more
