WATCH: Dejan Lovren volleys Liverpool into lead vs. Chelsea

What a start!

Liverpool have gotten off to a dream start against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge! Dejan Lovren have given the Reds a 1-0 lead just 15 minutes into the two clubs’ Premier League match-up.

A quick free kick routine eventually led to Philippe Coutinho finding the defender at the far post unmarked. Lovren made no mistake with his finish past Thibaut Courtois to give Liverpool the lead.

It’s a great start for the Reds in a very high profile away match. It’ll be a hard fight to keep Chelsea off the score sheet and maintain this slim one-goal lead. Another goal would certainly help matters and at the rate the match is going, Liverpool look the more likely of the two to score again.
