Daniel Sturridge rescues Liverpool a point while Eden Hazard outshines Mohamed Salah

Liverpool had been the better side for great swathes of the Premier League encounter at Stamford Bridge, but a combination of poor finishing and resilient Chelsea defending meant they entered the dying minutes trailing 1-0 to Eden Hazard's superb finish. It's just been about keeping a positive outlook.

The former Manchester City striker scored the equalising for goal for Liverpool just three minutes later, as the match ended in a 1-1 draw.

While Hazard's slide was on display on Wednesday, after the Belgium worldwide scored a superb solo goal against Liverpool in the EFL Cup, the 27-year old is ready to give up the move.

But Daniel Sturridge's sublime long-range strike in the 89th minute rescued a point to keep Liverpool's unbeaten run going.

Salah, victor of the PFA Players' Player of the Year, Fans' Player of the Year and Football Writers' Player of the Year awards last season, has struggled to replicate the performances which meritted those awards.

"Three days ago he had a similar situation and hit the crossbar", Klopp said at his postmatch news conference. I try to do what I can do when I am on the pitch.

"He's such a threat still and it's really good". "We deserved to win!" "It was not Mo's best game of his career, 100 percent". It's good to get the result. You fail, you miss, whatever, that happens.

"I was just telling him I watched his videos", he said. Both teams deserve a point, we only had more chances, like we did on Wednesday.

"It is like riding a bike".

"Our defence have been really good also and they have had a lot of clean sheets so far this season, and they will be upset they haven't got one today but I think all in all it's probably a fair result".

"What a game, a spectacular football game", he told BBC Sport. It is not like you wake up in the morning and you can not finish any more, or you can not ride a bike anymore. But I saw a really good performance from my side in a hard game after we'd lost on Wednesday against them.
