FULL TIME: Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea!

Fantastic display from 10-man Chelsea to hold on for a point. Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool look frustrated with that.


Chelsea looking dangerous when they do go forward. Some real quality about their play to create chances.


Jordan Henderson curls a beauty just wide as the Kop applauds. It is all Liverpool now. 10 men of Chelsea sitting back deep.


Virgil van Dijk and Diogo Jota have both gone close for Liverpool early in the second half. Btw, amongst all of that, Firmino went off in the first half with a knock as Jota came on. While Kante (who took a whack) is off with Mateo Kovacic coming on for him, while Thiago Silva came on for Chelsea to replace Havertz.


The referee has made the correct decision, based on the rules, but that feels harsh on Reece James. No real intent there, but the ball hits his thigh and then his arm so quickly. Slight motion from his arm towards the ball. But if the penalty kick is given for a handball denying a goal, James has to be sent off. Those are the rules. Check them out here in full.


After a VAR check right at the end of the first half, Reece James is sent off and a penalty kick given. The ball hit his hand on the goal-line. Chelsea livid. Liverpool jubilant. The game has swung in Liverpool’s favor. Mohamed Salah slams home the penalty kick and then there’s a

melee among both sets of players. Chelsea are not happy. Spicy at Anfield! Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea.


Mane’s flick almost finds Matip, and his header then hits the bar, then Reece James clears on the line, but it looked like it hit his arm after hitting his knee. VAR review….

N’Golo Kante down injured for Chelsea…

A sight no Chelsea fan, or any football fan, wants to see. N’Golo Kante is down after falling over and Sadio Mane appeared to land on his ankle. He is up and about now but moving, shall we say, gingerly.


Mason Mount’s shot squirms inches wide after Joel Matip was caught out by Romelu Lukaku. Chelsea look so dangerous in attack. Moments later Liverpool get in down their right through Sadio Mane, but Elliott leans back and smashes over. End-to-end game now!

Anfield is crackling with tension and anticipation.


What a header. Kai Havertz flicks in a superb header from a corner. From an almost impossible angle. Sensational finish from the German international. Chelsea lead at Liverpool 1-0!

Did he mean to do this? Perhaps. He definitely did all he could from that angle to flick it into the danger zone. Stunning.

Bit scrappy now

Lot of free kicks being given and loose passes in central midfield. Both teams struggling to gain control of the tempo of this game. Jurgen Klopp is waving his team forward. I’m going to say it. I miss his glasses.

Oh, Romelu Lukaku…

He is free on the edge of the box with two players charging forward ahead of him. Lukaku selects to play the ball to his left, but Kai Havertz was clean through on his right. A great chance wasted for Chelsea.

Stop it, Trent Alexander-Arnold!

What a pass from the Liverpool right back to pick out Jordan Henderson, but his cushioned volley goes wide. Incredible diagonal ball from TAA.


So close for 18-year-old midfielder Harvey Elliott! He flashes a shot just wide of the far post. Liverpool have started well. Moments later, Liverpool defend a free kick well as Sadio Mane is back to deny Antonio Rudiger.

Kick off!

We are off and running at Anfield. You’ll Never Walk Alone belted out loud and proud as always. What an atmosphere. Goosebumps.

Liverpool and Chelsea (New York) are fired up for today’s game!

We spoke with some folks from Liverpool and Chelsea in New York state earlier this week.

At Liverpool High School (just outside Syracuse) students had messages from the men’s and women’s first team players at Liverpool and their connection with the Reds is strong.

There’s also a special watch party in Chelsea Square Restaurant in NYC where the New York Blues will be.

Team news for Liverpool vs Chelsea confirmed

Okay, so the team news has arrived and the starting lineups are in…

Liverpool make three changes from the team which beat Burnley last week, as Andy Robertson, Fabinho and Roberto Firmino all come in to the starting lineup.

Chelsea have N’Golo Kante back in midfield, as he replaces Kovacic. That is Chelsea’s only change after their win against Arsenal last week. USMNT’s Christian Pulisic not on the bench as he continues to recover from a positive COVID-19 test.


Welcome to our live analysis of Liverpool vs Chelsea, a simply massive game early in the campaign as both Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel aim to flex their Premier League title credentials!

Both Liverpool and Chelsea have scored five goals and are yet to concede, as Jurgen Klopp’s Reds have had a slightly easier schedule to kick off the campaign. Getting Virgil van Dijk up to speed has been a huge plus for Liverpool and his battle against Chelsea’s new main man Romelu Lukaku will be so intriguing to watch.

An intense rivalry has developed between these two Premier League giants in recent decades and with Anfield full and two star German coaches pitting their wits against one another, that will only add to the occasion.

With Lukaku now leading the line and after he scored on his second Chelsea debut in a comfortable win against Arsenal, are Tuchel’s side legit title contenders this season? Or have Klopp’s Liverpool somehow flown under the radar to become title contenders now that they have their central defenders back?

Ranking the 2023-24 Premier League kits


The 2023-24 Premier League kits are starting to be unveiled and there are some beauties out there.

[ MORE: 2022-23 Premier League schedule ]

From retro looks to snazzy designs, there are some very unique new looks as teams get ready for the new season.

[ VIDEO: Premier League highlights

Below we rank the Premier League kits which have been released as plenty more have been dropping ahead of the 2023-24 season.

1. Liverpool

A classic look for the red home shirt and this is a belter. It has been kept simple and the white trim is marvellous. Liverpool have nailed this.

2. Crystal Palace

Absolutely lovely stuff and it also looks like a kit Spider Man would wear!? The red and blue halves are divine, while having the original Crystal Palace design on the shirt is a great touch. This kit also celebrates that Palace have now been in the Premier League for 10 years. The blue shorts and socks are also lovely. Well done Palace. Well done.

3. Manchester City

A nod to being at their current stadium for 20 years, Man City go for a retro look from the 2003-04 season when things were very, very different from them. It’s a lovely kit and having seen it in-person, up close it looks even better than the photos.

4. Arsenal

There is a lot going on with the print on the red but the gold is a nice touch. Pretty decent effort.
