Match Highlights


60: CHANCE! Eden Hazard again! The defence goes to sleep and the Belgian is found at the front post from a clipped ball into the box. He should score but his effort is not clean and Alisson saves.

This is turning into a thriller.


56: Whatever Jurgen Klopp said at half-time has worked and Mo Salah’s name is being loudly sung by all four sides of Anfield.

Chelsea are rocking and have to clear another corner. Liverpool smell blood and feel they could score more.

Hudson-Odoi is taken off and on comes Higuain. A quiet game for the English youngster.




46: No changes and Chelsea getting the second half underway. They’re shooting towards their travelling fans.


HT: The final stages of the half are fairly uneventful and Liverpool and Chelsea head into the break all-square.

Mo Salah and Sadio Mane had Liverpool’s best chances, while Eden Hazard’s soft effort was Chelsea’s only one on target.

All to play for in the second half.


45: The first booking of the day goes to Cesar Azpilicueta as Sadio Mane rushes away from him and he’s hauled him down. Maurizio Sarri is not happy about it, but I’m not sure why he’s moaning. It was a clear yellow card.


43: A couple of early nerves from Christensen after coming off the bench. Firstly he is rushed into a back pass with Firmino bearing down on him. He then panics slightly and puts his boot through the ball as Liverpool press him again.


35: Chelsea’s lack of a striker is effecting the way they play. Hazard, playing as a false-nine remember, is out on the left, looking for an option in the box and there is nobody there. Hudson-Odoi has clearly been told to stay wide on the left, so even he isn’t looking to make a run into the box.


30: WIDE! David Luiz intercepts a pass and plays a fantastic pass to Willian on the halfway line. He runs at the Liverpool defence, shifts the ball onto his right foot on the edge of the box and lets fly. His effort doesn’t trouble Alisson and Anfield breathes a collective sigh of relief.


26: CHANCE! From his advanced midfield role, Henderson has his first chance of the game. Salah turns into a No.9, holding the ball up with his chest and setting up Henderson on the edge of the area. His shot is going wide but hits Luiz and deflects over. Back-to-back corners are cleared by Chelsea.


25: Chelsea have come into this game nicely after a fast start from Liverpool and are beginning to see more of the ball. They’re quite comfortable in possession and Willian and Hazard have got behind the defence on a couple of occasions. Hudson-Odoi’s been quieter.


20: Alexander-Arnold with a superb ball across the park finds Naby Keita, He drives at Azpilicueta and tries to caress a ball in with the outside of his right boot. It’s easy for Kepa though.

Chelsea go up the other end and have their first effort on target. Willian slips Hazard in behind Matip in the left of the box. He switches the ball into his right foot, only to scuff a rather weak attempt at Alisson. Warning signs for the Liverpool backline.


18: The positives and negatives of Hazard playing as a false-nine are shown there. A lovely one-two with Willian, possible because he was central, sets the Brazilian free down the left, but Hazard follows him and as Willian lifts his head up, there are no options in the middle of the park.


16: Chelsea are carrying a threat going forward and Loftus-Cheek was at the heart of their latest attack, which breaks down as Henderson tackles Willian. Liverpool then break and Mane is in acres of space on the right. Rather than play him in, Firmino runs into trouble and wins a free-kick. Mane is not happy.


Sky Sports’ Jack Wilkinson at Anfield: “Did David Luiz get any of the ball there? I’m not so sure. Perhaps the pace at which Salah knocked the ball into touch spared the Chelsea defender from a more severe punishment.”


14: Salah goes down in the box after taking on Luiz and there are muted shouts for a penalty. Rudiger isn’t happy with him, but it doesn’t seem like Luiz takes any of the ball. The ball drifted out for a goal-kick and complaints are minimal.


Sky Sports’ Jack Wilkinson at Anfield: “Hazard on the end of a crunching challenge by Fabinho, the Liverpool midfielder got plenty of the ball as well as the man. I don’t know about you but that’s the kind of tackle you’d want your team to made early on in such a crucial game.”


12: Hazard does return to the action and Alisson is called into action for the first time today. Hudson-Odoi manages to escape Robertson and cross from the right. It’s too close to the keeper and Alisson is able to punch it away. Not that Chelsea, playing with Hazard as a false-nine, had anyone in the box to get on the end of it.


10: Worrying signs for Chelsea. Fabinho slides in to dispossess Hazard near the halfway line and wins the ball. Chelsea aren’t happy with the tackle and Hazard stays down to receive treatment. He looks in some pain.


6: CHANCE! Liverpool have started well and their first effort comes through Mo Salah. Naby Keita spreads the ball wide to Sadio Mane, who delivers the ball in from the left.

It’s just over the onrushing Jordan Henderson’s head, but Salah connects with his left foot and warms Kepa’s gloves with a volley.
