A red mist engulfed part of the Chelsea support and it is understood that the young fan was treated after inhaling some of the smoke and feeling unwell.

Social media also showed Chelsea fans attempting to remove the flare from their section towards the pitch.

Mo Salah went on to add a second goal soon after as Liverpool moved back to the top of the table just a couple of hours after being knocked off the summit by Manchester City.

Jurgen Klopp's side have a two-point lead over City but the reigning champions have a game in hand heading into the final month of the season.

Liverpool next take on relegation-threatened Cardiff City but first face a trip to Portugal where they defend a 2-0 Champions League quarter-final lead over Porto.
