Match Report: Chelsea 1 – 1 Liverpool

Another late equalizer from Luiz Suarez ensure that the defending European Champions once again dropped two points and began sending out signals of a famous winter slump. The draw means Chelsea are now 3 points off the top of the table.


First half – 

Oscar found himself through on goal after Eden Hazard put him through after a brilliant counter-attacking move but the Brazilian pounded it over.

Chelsea then got their first corner after Torres won it. Mata swung it in to the near post and found Terry who finished it with class in the 20th minute.

10 minutes before half time , Terry attempted to tackle on Luis Suarez who tripped on the captain’s leg. Images show a horrific scene as Terry’s knee looked like it almost snapped in half. Gary Cahill came on for him as the fans looked down-hearted too see Terry nod a “no” to Roberto Di Matteo.

Second half –

Chelsea were still stuttering in possession whereas Liverpool had some long spells but when it came to creating chances Chelsea dominated. Torres’s header was parried away by the keeper and on an another day that would have been a terrific goal.

Liverpool brought on Suso for Sahin. Mikel turned into an AMF as he nearly scored via a Mata cross. Suso’s substitution was key as his corner resulted in Suarez scoring from close range after being flicked by veteran Carragher.

Liverpool were then on defending fiercely and RDM brought on Moses for Oscar and Sturridge for Torres. Cech then saved Chelsea after keeping MOTM Enrique’s shot out.

Come on Chelsea !
