Liverpool and Chelsea slipped further in the race for the English Premier League (EPL) title after both sides played out an entertaining 1-1 draw at Anfield in what was a Matchday 13 clash.
Chelsea created the better chances in the first half but failed to convert any and they paid dearly for it twenty minutes after the interval in the form of their former player Mohammed Salah who scored for the hosts.
In reaction to Liverpool’s goal, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte sent on Cesc Fabegras, Pedro and Willian and it was the Brazilian forward who rewarded his manager’s decision with a cross-shot to earn a valuable point for the champions.
The draw takes Chelsea to 26 points (they remain in 3rd position) and within eight points of Manchester City while Liverpool also stay in 5th spot with 23 points. A win would have taken the Reds above Tottenham Hotspur into the top 4.
