Chelsea’s awful 2015-16 season got even worse this Halloween afternoon as the Blues lost 3-1 at home to Liverpool.
A sixth defeat in 11 Premier League games leaves Chelsea with almost no hope of retaining their title as champions of England.
To make things worse for the Stamford Bridge side, they threw away a 1-0 lead, having broke the deadlock in the fourth minute courtesy of a fine header from Ramires, before being struck down by Philippe Coutinho’s fine double and a well-taken third from Christian Benteke.

Liverpool player ratings vs Chelsea
Chelsea were awful. But how awful? Find out as we rate Jose Mourinho and his players based on their individual performances against Jurgen Klopp’s resurgent Reds…
Asmir Begovic – 7/10
Made four good saves and was blameless for Liverpool’s three goals. Chelsea would have lost even if Thibaut Courtois were fit.
Kurt Zouma – 6/10
Better than Branislav Ivanovic has been this season, but the young Frenchman is not fully comfortable at right-back
John Terry – 4/10
The former England captain appears to have lost his mojo. Not only did he look off the pace, he failed to rouse his teammates when they needed strong words from their on-field leader.
Gary Cahill – 6/10
Defected a low Benteke shot into the net, but that was down to bad luck more than poor play. Overall, Cahill did ok.
