Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says hard work and a "little bit" of luck helped his side to take all three points from Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.
The Reds were chasing their first Premier League win under the German and produced a brilliant display in the second half to battle past Jose Mourinho's men.
The win lifted Liverpool to seventh in the table ahead of next week's home game against Crystal Palace.
"We didn't have the best start in the game," Klopp explained.
"We needed a few minutes to come into it and Chelsea made their goal – one of those strange situations where there were four against two in the corner and they made the cross.
"They made their goal but we stood in the game. We had our moments, we played football and our build-up with short passes – what we want to do – was very good.
"They tried to make high pressure but we could play in the spaces between. So we could change the situation a little bit and I think in the first half we deserved it.
"Of course, it's dangerous because of the quality of Chelsea with the counter.
"But we controlled these situations; not perfectly, we showed the guys a few situations at half-time where we had to protect our situations better. We made a goal and deserved the draw at half-time.
"In the second half it was an open game, we got a little bit more of the game and made our goals in two perfect moments for us. Shoot at the right moment, don't shoot at the wrong moment, take the ball to a better situation and then shoot.
"A little bit of luck, of course, but I feel it was deserved.
"At the end, we had to work hard but that's normal if you want to win at Chelsea. We had to work hard and that's what we did."
