Chelsea vs Liverpool highlights: Daniel Sturridge earned Liverpool a last-gasp point at Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday, his 89th minute strike cancelling out Eden Hazard’s fine first-half finish. Chelsea went ahead in the 25th minute when Mateo Kovacic sent a perfectly weighted ball from Chelsea’s half into the path of Hazard and the Belgian shot neatly past the left hand of diving goalkeeper Alisson into the bottom corner.

HALF TIME! Chelsea 1-0 Liverpool

Liverpool will wonder how it is that they have a '0' written against them on the scorecard. They had more possession and a number of chances to score but Chelsea have remained alert and dealt with the threats effectively. Then, they always have Eden Hazard in case they want to score a goal.
