  • Chelsea vs Liverpool Detailed match preview

Daniel Sturridge's absolute peach of a strike against Chelsea allowed Liverpool to secure a point in their hotly anticipated clash.

Chelsea and Liverpool meet for the second time in four days as the Premier League's early pace-setters face off at Stamford Bridge this evening.

Not only has he been picking up results, but his side have looked good on the eye with Eden Hazard shining above anything in the Premier League so far this season.

'We had big chances.

But, as the clock ticked down, Sturridge had the final say - bending a attractive strike into the top corner from 30 yards.

That has to feel good for Sturridge.

"It's a team game".

Chelsea star Eden Hazard claims he has "retired" his famed knee slide celebration, citing adverse after effects as the reason behind the move.

The problems facing Maurizio Sarri, however, is that he simply doesn't have a striker who can ease the burden on Hazard.

"The first two places, as you know, for me, is going to be very hard because Manchester City and Liverpool are a step forward on us".




@ReecesPiece_ suggested that "he's been the best defender in the league this season without a doubt".

"We thought West Brom was a good idea for him to get minutes under his belt again, and when he came back, he was an option for us. Pedro is at three goals [already]".

So it's all on Hazard then!

How important do you think Sturridge will be to Liverpool this season?

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has played down his decision to substitute Mohamed Salah against Chelsea, though admits the Egyptian did not have his best game.

There is no doubt that Salah will continue to score goals by the bucketload for Liverpool.

While Salah's form in front of goal has been cause for concern for some fans, his overall performance showed shades of the player who took the league by storm last season.

It was a really great game to watch, high intensity and high quality, and even though City are rightly the bookies title favourites, they have a couple of serious challengers to watch out for.

He looks off the pace and short on confidence, but it would be foolish to expect his dip to last too long.
