Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea had conceded only one goal – an own goal from Antonio Rudiger – until just now.
This was scored by an opposition player, but the defensive errors were almost as bad as those on the OG.
Kurt Zouma and Antonio Rudiger lost their spacing, and the former allowed Takumi Minamino to run in behind him to reach Nathan Redmond’s pass.
The Liverpool player didn’t mess around, dropping a couple of players on the ground before a cool finish. Chelsea desperately need some of that composure themselves now.
