The winning streak has well and truly been shook today after Liverpool’s draw against Chelsea. The reds went home with mixed feelings today after a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge, still technically undefeated. The Anfield Talk’s Dale (@evocatio_) rounded up social media’s reactions…
The first half saw Chelsea take the lead through a goal from Hazard, which split opinion on Alisson amongst fans. Some argued he should’ve saved it whilst others were just relieved to see him save against Willian. Salah came in with some unfortunately predictable moves that failed to level the score.
Mané and Firmino pulled it out the bag in the second half but it wasn’t quite enough against Arrizabalaga. Salah, Shaqiri and Milner all had a shot at a goal in the second half but none of them came to fruition unfortunately for Liverpool fans. Daniel Sturridge came on in the 86th minute and banged one in the back of the net in under three minutes.
Through desperation Liverpool tried to hang on and Sturridge pulled it back to level playing. Aside from him van Dijk and Gomez appeared to be the only ones still fighting by the time the 90th minute came around. Chelsea played with new tactics having dropped deep whilst Liverpool continued to play with the same game plan as they have done all season.
Alisson is overrated for me, none of his saves this season have been anything special, made several distribution and sweeping mistakes too. Only good because he isn't Karius and is generally more confident.

What’s the point on spending nearly £100 million on 2 midfielders and playing fucking Henderson and wijnaldum? Klopp arrogance fucks us over consistently.
