Daniel Sturridge’s spectacular late equaliser earned Liverpool a deserved draw at Chelsea – but the end of their 100% start to the Premier League season leaves Manchester City top of the table.
Eden Hazard’s 25th-minute goal, struck low across Alisson, threatened to make him the Blues’ match-winner against Liverpool for the second time in a week after his decisive strike in the 2-1 victory in the Carabao Cup at Anfield.
But the visitors wasted a host of opportunities and were facing their first league defeat of the season until substitute Sturridge curved a magnificent 25-yard left-foot drive high past Chelsea keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga with a minute of normal time left.
Jurgen Klopp’s side fully merited their point, with the disappointing Mohamed Salah missing two chances and having a shot cleared off the line by Antonio Rudiger in the first half, before Xherdan Shaqiri missed an open goal and Roberto Firmino had a header swept off the line by David Luiz after the break.
Alisson also made crucial saves from Willian and Hazard as both teams remained unbeaten in the league but had to settle for a draw.
