Liverpool manage a draw against Chelsea: Key discussion pointsLast updated on Sep 30, 2018, 12:09 pm
The match between Chelsea and Liverpool was a thrilling encounter and lived up to all the excitement surrounding it.
The Reds managed a draw against Chelsea, courtesy Sturridge's stunner.
As Sarri and Klopp's men battled it out at Stamford Bridge, we understood that the Premier League will be unpredictable this term, especially if these two teams continue to perform like they did last night.
Daniel Sturridge was the ultimate super-sub
After Hazard put Chelsea forward in the 25th minute, the onus was upon Liverpool to fight back in order to avoid losing to the same side twice in a span of four days.
They managed the draw thanks to Daniel Sturridge, the former Chelsea man.
Sturridge's 89th-minute stunner proved to be the decisive factor and what a magnificent goal it was!
Liverpool missed many sitters
Finishing has been the main problem for Klopp and Co., this season
The problem resurfaced, last night, as Liverpool got many chances to equalize and take the lead, but they squandered away all of them.
Shaqiri missed a tap-in sitter that he would have scored 9 out of 10 times.
It is high time Klopp finds a solution to this problem.
Chelsea are playing brilliant football
Chelsea, under Sarri, have found a new life as their display last night was nothing short of artistic.
Fine and fast-paced passing creates chances for them even before the opponents realize they are in danger.
Such a pass is what got Chelsea their goal, when Hazard made a run for it and put it just beyond Alisson's reach with a masterful finesse.
Sarri expects Hazard to score 40 goals this season
Chelsea gaffer Maurizio Sarri expects players from his team like Willian, Pedro, and Alvaro to score more than 10 goals this season.
However, his expectations from Eden Hazard are at a different level.
He thinks Hazard can net in 40 goals this season.
"I'm really very happy with the defensive performance of Hazard today, especially in the second half", Sarri added.
