Liverpool vs Chelsea.

Liverpool faced Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League and although this is usually a clash of giants, today's game was a battle between two sides struggling for form.


Chelsea sacked Graham Potter after just seven months in charge and sat in 11th place going into this tie, while Liverpool were coming of the back of a 4-1 thrashing to Manchester City.

The race for Champions League spots seem to be fading out of sight for both team, but today was an opportunity to try and springboard themselves back into contention and salvage this season.

Jurgen Klopp made six changes to his side, with usual starters Andy Robertson, Virgil Van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Mo Salah all losing their place.


A goalless first half saw Chelsea have a handful of decent chances, particularly from Joao Felix and Kai Havertz, but Liverpool came close as well from a well struck Fabinho shot.

Havertz did manage to find the net in the second half, but it was ruled out for handball by VAR and despite the home side having more of the ball, Liverpool took confidence from all of their opposition's misses.

James Milner entered the fray and in doing so took over Frank Lampard in the all-time Premier League appearances, meaning that only Ryan Giggs and Gareth Barry have made more.


In the end neither team could manage to make the breakthrough, and it finished 0-0.
