Ten-man Chelsea battled to a 1-1 draw against Liverpool in a thrilling Premier League clash at Anfield on Saturday.
Chelsea took the lead through Kai Havertz brilliant header in the 22nd minute.
Liverpool were awarded a penalty late in the first half after Reece James handled the ball inside the box.
Joel Matip hit the bar as Chelsea struggled to clear a corner and when Sadio Mane rifled in a follow-up shot the ball cannoned into James’ arm off his knee on the goal-line, before the defender appeared to try to flick the ball away with his hand.
Referee Anthony Taylor consulted the pitchside monitor on VAR’s advice and infuriated the Chelsea players by not only awarding a spot-kick – which Mohamed Salah hammered home – but also showing James a red card for denying a clear goalscoring opportunity.
Liverpool dominated the game after the break but failed to score the much needed winning goal.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
