Sturridge keeps Liverpool unbeaten, recovers draw at Chelsea

Adjust Comment Print

Liverpool cancelled out Hazard's effort through Daniel Sturridge's 89th-minute stunner, extending their unbeaten start to the league season to seven matches.

Chelsea will play a high line as they look to smother the Reds which will be music to the ears of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané who are perhaps the best counter-attacking duo in the entire league. "But I think Pedro, Willian, Morata will be able to score more than 10 goals in the season".

Chelsea, who were victorious in a midweek League Cup encounter between the sides, took the lead through Eden Hazard before a late wonder goal from Daniel Sturridge earned Liverpool a share of the spoils.

Liverpool stay at the top of the table with Man City while Chelsea are now third, two points behind them. Having impressed for a number of seasons, the Belgian worldwide has raised his game even further this season and now looks set to take his place among those considered to be in the latter bracket.

Liverpool's 2-1 loss to Chelsea at Anfield on Wednesday night is one of those weird results where, as much as it annoys me that we've lost, I actually don't really care that much.

Sturridge's ability has never been in doubt at Liverpool, but his body has all too often let him down, with a series of injuries interrupting his progress over the last four seasons.

"He's such a threat still and it's really good".

When these two clubs met in this fixture last season, Olivier Giroud's solitary strike secured a 1-0 win for the Blues.

"As long as we play like we did tonight we will win football games".

"I have the feeling we are improving match by match". "It was not Mo's best game of his career, 100 percent". But coming into a game like this, constantly in [potentially scoring] situations, that makes him a world-class player. You fail, you miss, whatever, that happens.

"I like to think I have [scored better] but probably not".

"It is like riding a bike".

Chelsea now sits third in the Premier League, sporting a 5-0-1 record following a scoreless tie against West Ham on September 23 that ended its flawless run.
