VIDEO: Ramires puts Chelsea up within first minutes over Liverpool

In the big matchup between Chelsea and Liverpool, the game started with a bang as Ramires tore through the box and got in front of a still Alberto Moreno to thunder in a headed goal to put Chelsea up 1-0 after three minutes.

There is still plenty of time for both teams but Chelsea is really answering the critics who are doubting them. They know this is a must win game to get them up through the table. Now they just need to hold on.
