Goals: Hazard 25’ ; Sturridge 89’


The Reds responded to League Cup elimination by ensuring the Premier League unbeaten run was maintained with a fully deserved draw at Stamford Bridge.

Eden Hazard proved Liverpool’s nemesis yet again as he opened the scoring on 25 minutes, firing across Alisson and into the far corner of the net.

In the final minute of the 90 late substitute Daniel Sturridge made a stunning impact, sending a sensational 25-yard curler into the top corner to grab a point and his 50th league goal for the Reds.

It was a strong response to a first loss of the season from Klopp’s side, who could have taken all three points with more ruthlessness in attack.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the result across social media and on our forums.
