Chelsea slumped to their first defeat of the Antonio Conte era on Friday night, with the Blues beaten 2-1 by Premier League rivals Liverpool at Stamford Bridge.

Although Diego Costa continued his purple patch in front of goal to get the Blues back in the game in the second-half, Jurgen Klopp’s men weathered the storm and held on to record an invaluable victory.

Despite a poor first-half performance, Conte opted not to make any changes at half-time and it was not until the 83rd minute that the Italian trainer decided to introduce new players.

The former Juventus man overlooked reserve striker Michy Batshuayi and instead opted to bring Cesc Fabregas, Pedro and Victor Moses on for the final push.

The ploy proved unsuccessful, with the newly introduced trio not having enough time to make an impression on the game before the end.

Chelsea’s fans, obviously disappointed with the defeat, have taken to Twitter to vent their frustrations and Conte’s decision not to change things until close to the end has not won him any fans.

Here are the best tweets:
