Chelsea vs Liverpool: Sadio Mane Strikes Twice as Defending Champions Continue Winning Start
Liverpool FC completed a dominating 2-0 win over Premier League rivals Chelsea at Stamford Bridge for their second straight victory of the new season. Sadio Mane struck twice after being felled by Andreas Christensen in the first half that resulted in a red-card reducing the hosts to 10 men.
Mane, who was picked by Jordan Henderson in the injury time of the first half, was tackled by Christensen with referee doling out a Yellow card but after consulting VAR, changed it to red.
After the resumption, Mane broke the deadlock with a header in the 50th minute and four minutes later pounced on a howler from Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga to slot the ball into the empty net.
The win comes after Liverpool started the season with a thrilling 4-3 win over the promoted Leeds United.
