Chelsea are really good at defending.
So well organised even with 10 men. They are a defensive unit . Built for the breakaway. That is Tuchel's only game plan. They're masters at it. But even Liverpool don't have the same guile like penetration like they had in 19/20 season. Theyre more direct. They can defend too.
Pep will figure out how to adapt to beat them both .

Liverpool remain a long ball team at their most effective they bypass midfield and cross from deep

As Pep has sussed deny the space behind and it nullifies them, it took four games but he deployed the team superbly against them in recent games. The Chelsea nut is a harder crack utter commitment from the the two midfielders and five very good defenders makes it difficult.

They looked average to me. It would have been 1-1 if he hadn't had handballed it. Chelsea had two shots before that incident and their header was just a lucky set piece header. Nothing spectacular
I thought they looked like they had a very good setup to stop Liverpool, scored a good goal and looked really dangerous on the counter attack. Once the red card happened they did what this Chelsea team do really well and that’s kill games and be horrible and frustrating.
