Antonio Conte got the better of Jurgen Klopp in the small hours of the morning as Chelsea ran out 1-0 winners in this International Champions Cup encounter. The game will be more remembered though for Cesc Fabregas’ red card.
The Spanish international took a wild lunge at Liverpool’s new Estonian defender Ragnar Klaven and was unsurprisingly sent off. For what was a pre-season friendly it was somewhat of a reckless challenge.
Up to that point the game was pretty pedestrian and although the referee was somewhat card happy there was very little incident until Fabregas was shown his marching orders.
Gary Cahill scored the winner as once again he was on hand to head home from a corner
