Chelsea inflict Liverpool fifth straight home defeat

Chelsea gained the upper hand in a tight battle for a place in next season's Champions League by inflicting Liverpool's fifth consecutive home defeat as Mason Mount's winner earned a 1-0 win on Thursday, reports AFP. The Blues move into fourth in the Premier League, four points clear of Liverpool, who slip to seventh. After a 68-game unbeaten league run at Anfield over nearly four years was ended in January, the English champions are now on their worst ever league run at home. By contrast, Chelsea's unbeaten run since Thomas Tuchel replaced the sacked Frank Lampard in January stretches to 10 games.
