10-man Chelsea Force Liverpool To A Draw.

Chelsea played the entire second half with 10 men but held on for a draw after Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah’s penalty had cancelled out Kai Havertz’s excellent header at Anfield.

Thomas Tuchel’s side looked in control following Havertz’s opener on 22 minutes in front of a stunned Kop.

But the game changed completely in the closing moments of the first half when a goalmouth scramble saw defender Reece James use his arm to block Sadio Mane’s shot on the line.

Referee Anthony Taylor awarded the Reds a penalty and showed a straight red card to James after checking with the video assistant referee.

Salah sent Blues goalkeeper Edouard Mendy the wrong way before a scuffle broke out between both sets of players after Mendy kicked the ball away in frustration into the path of Jordan Henderson.

The draw leaves Liverpool and Chelsea on seven points, level with West Ham and Everton, though the Hammers top the table on goals scored.
