Chelsea had goal line technology to thank as they came from behind at Anfield
Diego Costa fired home the winner in the second-half for Jose Mourinho’s side.

CHELSEA CAME FROM a goal behind to win 2-1 at Anfield and maintain their unbeaten start to the season.

Diego Costa’s tenth Premier League goal of the season came after Gary Cahill had cancelled out Emre Can’s early opener.

The Spanish striker showed all his potency as he fired home from close-range.

After inadvertently deflecting Can’s long-range effort into his own net, Cahill scored at the right end minutes later but the visitors had goal line technology to thank.

After Simon Mingolet managed to push John Terry’s close-range header away, Cahill was on hand to fire goal wards. It appeared the Belgian international goalkeeper had once again thwarted the visitors but referee Anthony Taylor awarded the goal after the hawk-eye technology adjudged the ball to have crossed the line.

Hooray for technology…

Can had given the hosts an early lead after his shot from range found the back of the net via the hip of Cahill. Brendan Rodgers made seven changes to the side that were beaten by Real Madrid on Wednesday with Mario Balotelli restored to lead the line.
