Henderson’s spectacular goal hands Liverpool a win over Chelsea

Liverpool continued their good run in the season with a dominant performance over their arch rivals chelsea. Two breathtaking goals from Jordan Henderson and Dejan Lovren gave liverpool an early lead in the first half. Chelsea could manage only a consolation as their disastrous run continued.

Sturridge fired off the first shot of the match, a decent curler from 20 yards. It was easy pickings for Courtois but he made a meal of it and it squirmed under his body. Ivanovic conceded a free kick for a needless foul on Lallana near the Chelsea corner flag on the left. But Liverpool failed to exact retribution from the free kick, which was cleared by the first defender.After Ivanovic’s foul, Liverpool took a quick short free kick. Coutinho then flighted a ball to the far side of the box, where several Liverpool players were waiting, unperturbed by any defenders. Lovren guided a volley into the net from six yards.It was a lovely finish by the Croatian, and  woeful defending by Chelsea. First half went from bad to worst phase as Chelsea conceded another goal just before the half time mark.


It was from the skipper who produced something special to extend the domination over a dejected chelsea side. Cahill poked the ball off Lallana’s foot, but Henderson was well positioned to collect it. Then he sized up the distance to goal and curled a sumptuous dipping shot right into the top corner. The liverpool fans erupted to a thunderous applause as they witnessed something astonishing. Conte made a few changes in the second half to make a comeback into the game. Matic did brilliantly, showing hitherto unseen nimbleness to jink his way past Lallana to the byline and cut the ball back to Costa, who stabbed the ball into the net at the near post. That was the last action as chelsea couldn’t breach liverpool’s defence from there on.

My passion towards sports is a huge blessing as it highlights my own style and uniqueness. Things which I like to do during my free time includes reading books, newspapers and surfing the internet which I think is the main hobby for today's generation. Even though I didn't taste success in my cricketing career, I found myself another way to bond with my favorite sport. My liking towards the sport can be seen through my technical and statistical knowledgeof the game.
