Chelsea had Willian to thank tonight as the Brazilian’s second half wonder-goal saw the Blues walk away from Anfield with a point.
Liverpool opened the scoring in the 65th minute, after former Blues ace Salah placed the ball bast Thibaut Courtios after a mistake form Tiemoue Bakayoko.
Antonio Conte’s side then found an equaliser in the 85th minute, after a cross from Willian flew over Simon Mignolet and into the goal to draw the sides level.
Man of the Match
Chelsea’s Belgian ace Eden Hazard will take the plaudits today, as the player’s first half performance was one Lionel Messi would be proud.
The winger’s full skill-set was on show today, with the player even managing to bag the assist for Willian’s goal to wrap up his fantastic performance.
This tweet shows just how good the Belgian was today
That's Messi level from Hazard.

Flop of the Match
Summer signing Tiemoue Bakayoko had an absolute shocker today, with the player being at fault for Liverpool’s goal as well as other things.
The French midfielder failed to make an impact on the match before he was hauled off by Conte late in the second half.
This tweet pretty much sums up how bad the France international was today
Bakayoko is so poor. He does nothing good. Gives up clumsy fouls. Misplaces many passes. Not strong in the final third.

Stat of the Match
This from Opta show just how important Salah is to Jurgen Klopp’s side
10 – Mohamed Salah has scored 10 goals in his first 13 Premier League apps for Liverpool, the joint-most by any Liverpool player in their first 13 apps in the competition (level with Daniel Sturridge). Impact.

Whilst this Liverpool legend was all praise for the winger
Salah is a hell of a signing. Showed great respect for Chelsea by not celebrating after his 13 appearances for them

This tweet doesn’t make good reading for Chelsea fans
Chelsea's 'rejects' this season:
– Kevin De Bruyne: 4 goals & 9 assists.
– Monhamed Salah: 13 goals & 3 assists.
– Romelu Lukaku: 11 goals & 3 assists. pic.twitter.com/JkwgIcQyjK

Whereas this Liverpool fan was adamant that Willian’s goal wasn’t a shot
Why are people blaming Liverpool players for that goal. It's a complete fluke.
