4) Chelsea show up Liverpool’s poor summer
The difference between Chelsea’s and Liverpool’s recruitment was laid bare on Saturday. Despite Emre Can scoring, the Blues showed the Merseyside club what a good summer can do. Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas have turned the Londoners in to an unstoppable machine, while Liverpool’s plethora of signings have done little to replace Luis Suarez. This was evident in how Jose Mourinho’s side were on the front foot for most of the game, unlike the same fixture last season.
