On two occasions during the first half, Bakayoko managed to get into good positions in Liverpool’s box but was not able to take advantage.
However, signs were promising for the Chelsea faithful.
Could this mean that he is finally injury-free? Or is this purely a mental thing? It is more likely to be the former.
Another aspect that could have helped his game is the adoption of a midfield three with Kante and Fabregas supporting him. This could be the key to bringing the best out of Bakayoko.
It might be too late in the season for a resurgence. Such a performance would have definitely done his confidence a world of good and provided promise for the new season.
Conte will be hoping to see more of it for the remainder of the games as the Blues push to snatch a Champions League spot.
