Antonio Conte pumped his fists in celebration as the final whistle blew. As he made his way over to the away supporters, his grimace relaxed in to a smile.

Liverpool and Chelsea shared the spoils at Anfield after Willian cancelled out Mo Salah’s effort. Both goals carried a generously-proportioned slice of luck. Salah finished past Thibault Courtois on 65 minutes after Tiémoué Bakayoko miscontrolled the ball on the edge of the box. With five minutes remaining, Willian chipped the ball towards the far post and looked on as it looped over Simon Mignolet and in to the corner.

Man of the Match

Eden Hazard was on course to scoop the prize until he picked up a knock just after the break. It was Mo Salah who inflicted that injury, and it was Mo Salah who stood out in the second half. He was a consistent menace apart from scoring Liverpool’s goal.

Where does it leave both teams?

The managers of the two Manchester clubs will have been pleased with the outcome at the other end of the ship canal. The draw at Anfield leaves Chelsea three points behind second-placed United and eight points behind City.

Liverpool remain in fifth, one point ahead of Arsenal and one point behind Spurs.

Up next…

Liverpool make the short trip south to Stoke on Wednesday, while Chelsea host Swansea City at Stamford Bridge.
