Chelsea v Liverpool

It's official; it is the worst start to a Premier League title defence in history. Jose Mourinho and his side have been undone again at Stamford Bridge. Is there anyway back for him now?

FULL TIME: Chelsea 1-3 Liverpool

We are almost done here, Stamford Bridge is really starting to empty as You'll Never Walk Alone rings out.

Coutinho, on a hat-trick, dances into the box, teasing Cahill and Zouma before trying to jink inbetween them but Chelsea force a corner.

Four minutes of time added on. Imagine if Mark Clattenburg blew up early? Scenes.

Having said that, those still in attendance are still belting out their manager's name. Chelsea are looking to pull something back, but are looking as toothless as ever.

As that third goal hit the back of the net, it looked like a fire drill around Stamford Bridge as many headed for the exits.

It;s three! Benteke receives the ball from out on the right, shimmies inbetween Terry and Cahill and drills low for the bottom corner. This is stunning, how does Jose Mourinho recover from this?

Goal! Chelsea 1-3 Liverpool (Christian Benteke, 82)

Chelsea have thrown everyone forward but Liverpool pounce on the counter with Jordon Ibe looking to get on the score sheet immediately. His effort deflects of Terry, but this time it guides it away from goal.

12 minutes to play. This is all a bit bonkers.

Amid all that, Radamel Falcao has come on for Chelsea while Jordon Ibe has entered the fray for Liverpool.

Moreno almost makes it three! No one can keep up with the Spaniard as he tears down the left and has no choice to take the shot on himself, drilling one towards the near post. Begovic however stretches and gets his studs to it to save.

Coutinho has done it again! A cross field ball sprayed out to the right is nodded back down by Benteke into the path of the Brazilian who has pulled away from his marker just inside the box. He twists, turns and shoots, with his shot taking the slightest nick of John Terry on it;s way to finding the top corner.

During all that, Cesc Fabregas has come on for John Obi Mikel. Mourinho meanwhile...

Ooof! Oscar, winning the ball from Lucas just inside his half, whacks a wonderful Charlie Adam-like effort on goal, trying to catch out Mignolet but the Belgian scampers back to palm it out of play,

Mourinho is going mental here. Lucas, already booked, clips the trailing leg of Ramires, prompting calls for a red from everyone in blue. Mourinho joins in, applauding sarcastically from the dugout for the referee's decision not to produce a card. Won't lie, I can't wait for the post-match press conference now.

Liverpool;s first change isn't a surprising one, Christian Benteke has entered the fray, replacing Milner.

Eden Hazard has been subbed off here, replaced by 19-year-old Brazilian Kenedy. He looks to make an immediate impact, driving down the inside left flank before firing a low effort towards the near post but can't quite find the target.

Cahill nods a ball back to Begovic with the goalkeeper already rushing out to claim. That moment of miscommunication gives Liverpool a corner.

Liverpool win a free kick out on the left that Coutinho swings into the box, but Zouma is up well to nod it clear.

Chelsea throw the first jab of the half as Hazard tries to race through the middle. It's knocked wide to Willian who drops a stepover before swinging a cross in from the right, but Mignolet easily claims.

And we are back underway at Stamford Bridge.

Twitter's full of outrage over that Coutinho goal, which hit the back of the net after the referee's two minutes of added time had elapsed. That would have been a 'minimum' of two minutes of added time' signalled by referee Mark Clattenburg though, no?

HALF TIME: Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool

What a goal! Clyne finds Coutinho on the edge of the D who drops a shoulder to easily slip the ball past the challenge of Mikel, working the ball onto his left foot. He then curls an outstanding shot past Begovic into the back of the net, sending Jose Mourinho storming down the tunnel in disgust. That goal came 30 seconds after two minutes of added time signalled by referee Mark Clattenberg. What are the chances of Jose Mourinho having something to say about that should he side not win today?

Goal! Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool (Philippe Coutinho)

We are into two minutes of added time in this first half.

Coutinho now keeps the ball in play out on the left and plays it into Can but his first touch is atrocious, lifting the ball into the air, leaving him no choice but to hook a hopeful ball into the six yard area, allowing Begovic to come out and claim.

Can has the chance to thread a ball through for Firmino who is rushing down the inside left flank but his pass is easily intercepted.

Both Coutinho and Hazard have had very quiet games so far. Hazard, who is playing through the centre in this first half has looked particularly in effective.

Hazard gives the ball away and Liverpool work the ball wide to Clyne on the right. He shifts it back to Milner but the outswinger can only be met by Lucas, who does well to reach it, but it is never troubling Begovic.

Liverpool scream for a handball right on the edge of the box after Clyne ploughs the ball into Terry. Referee Martin Clattenburg says it hit the Chelsea defender in the chest. Replays suggest differently.

Urgh, that's rubbish. Willian's delivery fails to beat the first man and Liverpool clear.

Can concedes a really stupid free kick, sliding into the back of Willian who was running into the corner getting precisely nowhere with the ball. Free kick to Chelsea.

A neat interchange between Clyne and Milner down the right creates a nice opening for the captain to swing a fine ball into the box. It flies past Firmino but Lallana gets a boot to it, pinging it straight at Begovic.

Liverpool are growing into this a bit, keeping possession well around the edge of the box, but still lack a bit of a cutting edge. The ball breaks to Lallana who tries a shot from just inside the box but Begovic easily saves.

Coutinho drops a shoulder to edge ahead of Zouma as he chases a ball into the box and wins a corner. Didn't see who took it, but he may as well not have bothered, lifting it straight into Begovic's arms.

Moreno's first touch initially lets him down but he's quick enough to close down Zouma and win the ball back out on the left, prodding it across the edge of the box where Firmino is waiting. The Brazilian is nudged out of the way but Clyne is on the loose ball but can only smash a wayward shot off target.

Chelsea break menacingly through Hazard who cuts inside from the right. Oscar has popped up in plenty of space to his left but the Belgian's pass is just behind him, allowing Liverpool to get numbers back and deal with the danger.

Jugen Klopp will not be happy with his side's inability to hold onto the ball inside these opening 12 minutes, even less so with the amount of cheap free kicks they have given away in dangerous areas.

Liverpool have the ball but are quickly boxed into a corner. Lallana and Firmino try to intricately work it out but Zouma comes in to win the ball back.

Willian tries to cause more havoc with a free kick out on the left but Sakho can clear this one.

And Chelsea almost snatch a second! Lucas concedes a foul about 30 yards out and the ball is swung into the box. Zouma pulls out to the left to nod it across goal where Mikel is steaming in, but he can't quite reach the ball.

Chelsea have the lead three minutes in! Costa holds the ball up brilliantly out on the left flank, waiting for Azpilucueta's overlapping run down the flank. The Spaniard gets on his bike and receives the pass before swinging a lovely ball into the box. Ramires, who signed a new four-year deal this week, edges ahead of Skrtel to slam a bullet header past Mignolet.

Goal! Chelsea 1-0 Liverpool (Ramires)

First sort-of-chance falls to Liverpool. Chelsea concede possession in their own half with Firmino picking up the ball and trying to slide one into the path of Milner on the edge of the box. He can't bring it under control, but the ball bounces back to the Brazilian who drives a poor shot across goal.

And Chelsea get us underway.

Not long until kick off now; both teams are making their way out onto the pitch on a sunny afternoon in west London.

What happened last time Jose Mourinho and Jurgen Klopp met? The Special One's Real Madrid side sealed a 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund, but it was a result only good enough for them to lose 4-3 on aggregate to the Bundesliga side. Two weeks prior to that, Klopp, Marco Reus, Ilkay Gundogan and Robert Lewandowski produced a masterclass with the latter scoring all four of his side's first leg goals at the Westfalenstadion.

A few landmark appearances for the Chelsea lads today. Diego Costa will make his 50th appearance for the club since his arrival from Atletico Madrid last summer, Oscar, makes his 100th Premier League appearance while John Terry will captain the side for the 550th time.

While Klopp may have picked up his first win of the season on Wednesday night, this Liverpool side have not won away in the Premier League since the opening day of the season.

Liverpool have come to Stamford Bridge and caused problems in the past though, having taken three wins in their last eight visits t west London.

Divock Origi is the only change in that Liverpool side. He's not even on the bench today, having been told he will be better off training at Melwood, according to James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo.

A couple of huge calls for Jose Mourinho, then. Eden Hazard starts but the under-fire Nemanja Matic drops out with John Obi Mikel entrusted with the holding midfield role. Cesc Fabregas is also out with Oscar returning to the no. 10 role. Kurt Zouma meanwhile has again been preferred at right back, meaning Baba Rahman remains on the bench.

BREAKING: Diego Costa fit to start for Jose Mourinho's side but Nemanja Matic is dropped for John Obi Mikel with Cesc Fabregas also dropped to the bench.

TEAM NEWS – Liverpool: Christian Benteke is fit again after suffering that knock against Southampton but Daniel Sturridge remains sidelined, having not played under Klopp since the German's arrival on Merseyside. Kolo Toure is ruled out after suffering a hamstring injury midweek but James Milner should return after serving a one-match suspension. Jordan Henderson, Danny Ings and Joe Gomez remain long-term absentees

Christian trained quite normally, together with John – one of our fitness coaches – and it was good. He's prepared for tomorrow.

TEAM NEWS – Chelsea: Branislav Ivanovic and Thibaut Courtois remain absent while Diego Costa and Pedro face late fitness tests. Costa suffered a chest injury in the defeat to Stoke while Pedro has not played since the win over Aston Villa due to a muscle problem.

Not many injuries. Courtois and Ivanovic are out and Pedro and Diego we will wait. The others are fine. Pedro and Diego I am hopeful, if not I don't take them to the hotel. It is always difficult for me to find the percentage [how fit] it is more about the confidence of the players.

The latest instalment of a very modern football rivalry takes place this afternoon. Fresh off his first victory as Liverpool manager in the League Cup against Bournemouth, Jurgen Klopp is ready for his first Premier League showdown with Jose Mourinho. The two were as courteous as could be in their pre-match press conferences on Friday, with the German insisting his Blues counterpart is a very nice guy before being told he is one of the best managers in Europe by Mourinho in return.

On their last meeting, their exchanges were a tad spicier as Klopp's Borussia Dortmund went all Robin Hood (his comparison, not mine) on Mourinho's Real Madrid, in 2013 thrashing the Spanish giants in the Champions League semi-final on a night where Robert Lewandowski found himself as his imperious best.

Mourinho could do with extracting some revenge this afternoon. Chelsea remain in1 5<sup>th place after their fifth league defeat of the season to West Ham United last week. They have already been dealt a further blow this week in their Capital One Cup elimination to Stoke City; a win today would go some way in relieving the growing strain on Mourinho' shoulders.
