Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool: 3 things we learned

Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool: 3 things we learned

Liverpool have now surrendered their lead at the top of the Premier League table, but with Manchester City winning Chelsea have some catching up to do if they're to challenge for the title.

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.

No club does yo-yoing quite like Chelsea - it has been boom one year, bust the next, far too often for the club's liking in recent seasons - but the bounce is back at Stamford Bridge and that makes them a risky outsider in this year's race for the title.

"It's always tactical", Klopp said of his decision to remove the player. "It was not Mo's best game of his career, 100 per cent", Klopp told a news conference. We thought West Brom [on loan last season] was a good idea for him to get minutes under his belt again, and when he came back, he was an option for us. You could see the first ball he missed a bit, it was not in the right position, and the next ball he passed! Why? It's not that you wake up in the morning and you can't finish, you can't ride a bike any more. That's how it is, you only need to work for these moments when it's clicking.

Jurgen Klopp's side looked to be heading for a second defeat to the Blues this week after Eden Hazard struck a brilliant opener, but Sturridge's emphatic effort from distance in the 89th minute rescued a point.

Maurizio Sarri will likely be the more disappointed given the time on the clock when Sturridge struck, but an EFL Cup win and Premier League draw with Liverpool in the space of three days is certainly no mean feat. But Chelsea is a super team and it is quite hard to play them, but I thought we did it in a really impressive way, to be honest.

It was on the left-hand side that we really saw a drop off though.

Hazard's form is the obvious one and Chelsea desperately need the Belgian worldwide to stay fit and firing, but this is also a squad packed with players who know how to win the title.

"Coming in these situations in the box is really not simple yet we still did it six or seven times, so I am completely fine".

While the Reds still created chances against Sarri's men - Daniel Sturridge, in particular, enjoying and enduring a busy evening - it was at the other end of the pitch that the notable difference between our starting XI and our "back-ups" lies.

Jorginho has been an exceptional addition but Kovacic, on loan from Real Madrid, has quietly improved the team and he is not short on big-game experience.
