Ten-man Chelsea earn 1-1 draw at Liverpool

 

Liverpool and Chelsea are the top contenders for the Premier League title this season. 

The two heavy favourites locked horns with each other at Anfield, with both sides entering the contest with perfect records. 

Thomas Tuchel’s side scored the first goal but the Reds grabbed the equaliser in the closing moments of the first half. 

The match ended in a 1-1 draw after the two Premier League outfits failed to move the scoreline in the second half. 

Jurgen Klopp’s side started the encounter at a super-charged pace but the visitors’ defences stood firm and didn’t let them create many opportunities. 

And then in the 22nd minute, Kai Havertz headed the ball home from James’ corner to put his side in the driving seat. 

The Blues had a great opportunity to extend the scoreline but Mason Mount squandered the scoring chance. 

And that proved to be a costly mistake as Liverpool were awarded a penalty after James’ handball just before the interval. 

The English footballer got his marching orders and Mohamed Salah drilled home the spot-kick to level the scores. 

Tuchel made two changes in the second half, bringing Thiago Silva for Havertz and Mateo Kovacic for N’Golo Kante. 

The Merseysiders had the numerical advantage but they failed to score any goal against the Pensioners. 

Chelsea provided a brilliant defensive display and ultimately claimed a point from the Anfield encounter.
