Mount lavished a glorious opportunity to double Chelsea’s advantage before the game entered controversy in the closing moments of the first half.
Liverpool were awarded a penalty after VAR confirmed that James stopped Sadio Mane’s shot with his hand inside the six-yard box, and a red card followed.
Mohamed Salah sent Mendy in the wrong direction through the penalty to set up a second-half Liverpool siege but Chelsea were equal to the task.
