Chelsea fought from a goal down to beat Liverpool at Anfield and stake another step forward in their march to the Premier League title.

In a thrilling game, especially the first-half, Liverpool led when Emre Can's long-range effort deflected off Gary Cahill and in.

Cahill didn't take long to make amends, however, bundling over a loose ball that was given thanks to goal-line technology.

Both teams continued to push for the decisive goal but it was the Premier League leaders who made their chance count.

Cesar Azpilicueta burst into the box from the left and crossed for Eden Hazard, who couldn't connect. Diego Costa, who else, was on hand to fire in the Chelsea winner, his 10th goal of the season already.

Jose Mourinho's team are now seven points clear at the top of the stable, while Liverpool are languishing in seventh with just 14 points from 11 matches.
