Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea player ratings, stats and reaction: Salah strikes again as Willian wonder-goal snatches draw for Blues

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

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
