Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea: Jurgen Klopp rages at officials over Blues equaliser”

Salah was their best player in the first half hour as he tried to force the issue time and again. When the team sheets were released, though, Conte - perhaps not wanting to reshuffle his backline and subsequently deprive them of natural width down the left flank - deployed Marcos Alonso in his natural position.

Hazard tormented a fragile Reds back line in the first half, and was Chelsea's most reliable attacking outlet, especially when the Blues were getting pegged back by Liverpool's press.

"We don't have many breaks in the season, so I try in training to have more of a rest and then in games I give everything".

"The only player around me was Alvaro Morata, so if we wanted to win we had to do something together, just me and him".

Mohamed Salah was destined to score against Chelsea.

Whether Willian's goal was intentional mattered little, as it rescued Chelsea a point and kept up the Blues great recent record at Anfield, where they haven't lost since 2012.

"When I'm on the pitch I do receive kicks, but that is part of football and I'm not complaining". At Liverpool he is still doing well, so I think we need to be careful with him.

Liverpool host Chelsea on Saturday and Salah is hoping to continue his impressive form of nine goals in 12 matches.

On paper, the duel was to be a mismatch.

Cristiano Ronaldo's first La Liga goal for over a month ensured Real Madrid closed the gap on La Liga leaders Barcelona to seven points by squeezing past struggling Malaga 3-2 on Saturday. The left-footer star from Egypt has scored more goals this season (15) than any other player and has even crossed last year's top scorer's tally. The Brazilian probably didn't mean it, but Conte deserves credit for the way he adjusted after going behind.

This begs the question, why didn't Jurgen Klopp deploy Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino from the start in such a big game? Sometimes it's difficult but always I try.

The more encouraging sub was Lallana, making his first appearance of the season after a long injury layoff.
