Daniel Sturridge stunner snatches late point for Liverpool at Chelsea

Just as in midweek when Hazard came off the bench to win the game with a stunning individual run and finish, Liverpool were undone by a moment of magic from Chelsea's number 10.

Liverpool had looked set to lose for the first time in the league this season after falling behind to Eden Hazard's 25th-minute opener at Stamford Bridge.

Salah was denied again after shrugging off Alonso and rounding Kepa when Rudiger cleared off the line.

Victory for fellow unbeaten side Chelsea would have taken them level on points with Manchester City at the summit, but instead it is Liverpool who sit alongside the reigning champions in what is shaping up to be a tight title race.

Since joining Chelsea in 2012, Eden Hazard has teetered on the boundary line between very good and great.

The disappointing Salah was replaced by Xherdan Shaqiri as Liverpool chased their equaliser, and the Switzerland worldwide promptly side-footed wide with the goal gaping after Andy Robertson had capitalised on Alonso's slip.

But with 88 minutes on the clock, former Chelsea forward Sturridge equalised in dramatic fashion with a 25-yard strike that flew into the top corner, beyond the reach of goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Klopp felt a draw was the least his team merited after a good performance, which came just three days on from their 2-1 EFL Cup defeat to Maurizio Sarri's side.

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger denied what looked like a certain goal from last season's Premier League top scorer and it was not the best evening for Salah in a Liverpool shirt.

There is a perfectly good chance for revenge on the immediate horizon for Klopp's men and if our Redmen go to Stamford Bridge and make it seven from seven in the league, I'll be more than happy with the way the last week has panned out.

Ross Barkley (NA): Very little time to make any kind of impact after he replaced Mateo Kovacic in the 81st minute.

Hazard's goal was his sixth in the Premier League and Sarri still thinks he can hit 40 this season.

"Daniel has always been in my thoughts, but he was never able to prove it".

That miss looked like proving costly for Liverpool, but Sturridge had other ideas. Chelsea have secured the win on 20 occasions, compared to Liverpool's 19. The promoted side are only the third team in Premier League history to name the same starting XI for their opening seven games of a season, after Leeds United in 1992-93 and Aston Villa in 2008-09.
