Chelsea beat Liverpool 2-1 at Anfield on Saturday.

Chelsea came from behind to beat Liverpool 2-1 at Anfield on Saturday.

Emre Can scored his first goal for Liverpool in the ninth minute to put Brendan Rodgers' side in front.  But the runaway league leaders soon equalised when Gary Cahill found the net just five minutes later, the defender's shot creeping over the line despite the best efforts of Simon Mignolet to keep it out.

Diego Costa would later do what he does best, netting his 10th goal since his summer move from Atletico Madrid to ensure Jose Mourinho's side - temporarily at least -stretched their lead at the top of the table to six points.

Questions remain over Liverpool's campaign, with many of their players under-performing and some fans wondering why those who shone against Real Madrid were not given another chance this weekend,
