Liverpool defeated Chelsea 5-3 in Anfield on Wednesday, July 22, 2020.

Goals from Keita, Alexander-Arnold, Wijanulum, Firmino, and Chamberlain condemned the Blues to the defeat, which keeps their top-four finish in serious jeopardy.

A draw would have secured Champions League football next season for Chelsea, but they capitulated in the first half as Liverpool got the party started early through Naby Keita’s stunner (23), Trent Alexander-Arnold’s fine free-kick (38) and Gini Wijnaldum’s volley (43).

Giroud, Antonio Rudiga and Tammy Abraham converted Chelsea’s three chances to goals but was not enough to triumph over Liverpool.

Other players that contributed to Liverpool’s 5-3 win include Firmino and Chamberlain.

Liverpool now go to Newcastle on the final day of the season at 4 pm on Sunday, while Chelsea is at home to Wolves at Stamford Bridge at the same time.
