Liverpool Flatten Chelsea 4-1

Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp intends to leave the current English Premier League (EPL) season on a high note, and last night, Wednesday 31 January, his team emphasised that by thumping Chelsea 4-1.

Klopp announced last Friday, 26 January, that he would be stepping down as manager of the Reds at the end of the 2023/24 season. The news shocked many, with the rumours of his successor already tipped to be Bayer Leverkusen head coach, Xabi Alonso.

However, that did not stop Klopp’s men from putting on an incredible footballing performance that left the Blues outclassed at Anfield in Liverpool, England.

The first half of the game saw goals from Diogo Jota and Conor Bradley in the 23rd and 39th minute, respectively.

Come the second half, Liverpool kept firing on all cylinders, as Dominik Szoboszlai added to the scoreboard as 65 minutes elapsed on the clock.

Chelsea’s Christopher Nkunku pulled back a consolation goal for the visitors in the 71st minute, but the winners were all but confirmed when Luis Diaz sealed the deal just eight minutes later with Liverpool’s fourth and final goal.

Liverpool sit at the top of the EPL table with 51 points – followed closely by Manchester City with 46 points – and unbeaten in their last 11 games across all competitions. If they keep up this energy, Klopp will be making a truly magical exit.
