Here we have with us the Liverpool Player Ratings during a stunning head-to-head contest against Chelsea. A close end-to-end match concluded with both teams shaking hands over a 2-2 draw.

The result has now put Manchester City in a more comfortable position in the Premier League, with a 10 point gap between them and second placed Chelsea.

In Jurgen Klopp’s absence due to Covid-19, the Reds initially held off the Blues well. Their night started off rather energetically as Sadio Mane broke the deadlock in the 9th minute. A missed clearance from Chelsea’s Trevoh Chalobah saw Mane net the ball in a beautiful fashion. Just 20 minutes later, Mohamed Salah scored a stunning goal to take the score to an easy 2-0.

However, that joy was short lived as Thomas Tuchel’s side bounced back. Goals from Mateo Kovacic and Christian Pulisic soon followed, before the half-time mark. In the second half, both teams kept pushing for a winner but none got the best out of the other as the game ended 2-2.
