Chelsea defeated Liverpool 2-1 at Anfield earlier today.

Chelsea defeated Liverpool earlier in an excellent performance at Anfield - in which they truly proved their title credentials.

The Blues were in top form against Liverpool, although had to come down from a goal down to secure victory.

Emre Can gave Liverpool the lead with a deflected shot beyond the helpless Thibaut Courtois. However woeful defending from Liverpool allowed Gary Cahill to equalise, with the help of goal-line technology.

Then it was the turn of their goalscoring supremo. Diego Costa once again showed why £32 million was spent on bringing him to Stamford Bridge this summer - scoring what proved to be the winner in an exciting game, ultimately, Chelsea deserved three points from.

It has not stretched their lead at the top of the table - as Southampton again claimed victory in their respective tie against Leicester City.

But the Chelsea players were out in force on Twitter and the like to celebrate the club's victory against a team quickly proving to no longer pose a title threat.

Here is some of the best reaction from the Chelsea players...
