Chelsea 1 Liverpool 1: Sturridge stunner rescues point

Adjust Comment Print

On any other weekend, the showdown between Premier League leaders Liverpool and title rival Chelsea at Stamford Bridge would be the centre of attention.

Liverpool scored a last-gasp goal on Saturday to earn a point away at Chelsea in the Premier League.

Chelsea will play a high line as they look to smother the Reds which will be music to the ears of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané who are perhaps the best counter-attacking duo in the entire league.

Stay with us for all the updates.

Jack Hallows believes that while Liverpool were second best in the Carabao Cup fixture against Chelsea, it won't matter at Anfield this evening. And defending champions Manchester City went back to the top of the table on goal difference with victory over Brighton.

It took him a matter of moments to make his mark, receiving the ball on the left, 25 metres from goal before turning and nonchalantly curling a superb effort out of the keeper's reach into the top corner to secure a 1-1 draw and deflate his former club.

That's the view of Match of the Day pundit Danny Murphy, who says that the Belgium global has had his best start to the season since he moved to Stamford Bridge. "But as long as we create chances like we did tonight, we will win football games".

However, Daniel Sturridge's superb late goal salvaged a draw for Liverpool.

"It's really cool. I'm really happy for him".

You wouldn't be mad to put money on Hazard departing West London at the end of the current campaign, but there's no doubt he'll continue to perform for Chelsea until that time comes.

"I think at the end of the season we can have four or five players over 10 goals". I imagine he was really frustrated because training with him and watching him shows he has got so much ability but he couldn't get himself fit enough to play at the intensity he wants him to.

Hazard has been on top form, so far this season.

Chelsea's key players are likely to be given a rest on Thursday, when they host Vidi in the Europa League, given their league trip to Southampton takes place only three days later.

When asked about his recovery recently, he explained: "It is a very serious injury and it can happen to any of us at any time so that's obviously something that is never easy to deal with and get over".

"You can see how good Chelsea are but it's nice to see it again".
