As expected, Chelsea’s players have stayed away from social media following defeat after Liverpool thrashed them 4-1 on Wednesday night at Anfield.

It was a night to forget on Merseyside. There were very few positives for Mauricio Pochettino to take from the sidelines other than Djordje Petrovic making several excellent saves, and Christopher Nkunku – who scored Chelsea’s consolation goal – Malo Gusto and Carney Chukwuemeka making appearances off the bench in the second half.

Pochettino acknowledged in honest fashion the below-par performance against the Premier League leaders, telling reporters: “It’s so clear, they were much better than us. We lost every single duel.

“Well deserved (win) for them. Nothing to complain about the decisions, they were better than us.”

Nkunku, 26, returned to Chelsea’s bench at Anfield after absence through a hip injury. The 26-year-old ensured the Blues got on the scoresheet as he found the bottom corner in the 71st minute.

A defeat for the Chelsea squad to reflect on, particularly ahead of facing Liverpool again later this month in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley.

Nkunku took to social media to share a message and his verdict on Wednesday night’s result, writing: “Not a good evening for us. Back to work before the next ones.”

Nkunku also spoke to Chelsea’s media team after the defeat on the road on Wednesday night.

He said: “We feel sad because we lost a game which we wanted to win. To concede three goals and to come back is very difficult. I think we need to work more and come back stronger for our game on Sunday.

“I think we need to work on everything. We need to put more in every moment of the game. We need to push hard with our intensity.

“I think even in our character, we need to do more on the pitch to win the game. We know the stadium is difficult to play in, but we can do a lot more.”
