On a 'blockbuster' night of Friday night football, Chelsea came up astonishingly short.
Dejan Lovren volleyed Liverpool in front within 20 minutes, before a stunning strike from Jordan Henderson doubled the Reds' lead.
Diego Costa pulled a goal back in the second half, but his efforts were in vain.
Here are five things we learnt from the match.
Same old story for David Luiz?
The £32million man made his return in Chelsea blue in place of John Terry.
Eyebrows were raised when Roman Abramovich dug deep into his pockets to reacquire the Brazilian.
And to be fair to him, filling in for the stalwart centre-back was always going to be an uphill battle, but the Blues were weak in defence.
The lack of leadership was worrying, and Klopp's men really could've made the score line more emphatic.
Chelsea fans will be hoping that their side's defensive display was the worst it will get this season.
They looked weak, lethargic and careless.
For the opener, there was hardly a blue shirt to be seen when Lovren slotted home. Likewise, Henderson cashed in off a thoughtless clearance.
Obviously, Conte will be eager to have Terry back and recovered, but there is much work to be done.
Lacked a natural left-sided player
Fans of the Stamford Bridge side will know this more than most, but the Blues' lack of left-sided players is a problem.
Hazard can be fantastic, but behind him is Cesar Azpilicueta - a converted left-sided player.
It means going forward the Blues were continually hesistant - coming back inside as they lacked an organic left footer to swing in a cross.
Over-reliance on John Terry
Yes, Chelsea's defence again.
Their captain, leader, legend is a fantastic player, and obviously an icon at the club.
But the 35-year-old is in the twilight of his career and the club have struggled to find his long-term replacement.
On this evidence, that struggle may continue for some time.
Triple substitution fails to pay dividends
The Italian manager made a desperate move with just over five minutes remaining.
Hauling off Willian, Oscar and Nemanja Matic, he brought on three players in Pedro, Victor Moses and Cesc Fabregas.
The only thing is, he left it too late. The Blues were struggling to create, with Liverpool happy to sit back and threaten on the break.
