Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool

12/11/2012

Chelsea were held to a draw by Liverpool yesterday in match that was both good and bad for the Blues' skipper John Terry.

JT returned to the starting line up with David Luiz missing the game through illness and Ashley Cole still out injured. Cesar Azpilicueta and Ryan Bertrand both got on Roberto Di Matteo's teamsheet for the match too.

Chelsea started the match on top and Oscar had a great chance to open the scoring early on. Hazard played it into the Brazilian, but he shot over the bar with his left foot with just Jones to beat.

It didn't take long for the Blues to get that first goal however. Juan Mata took a corner after 20 minutes and JT found plenty of space to smash home a perfect header!

Unfortunately for the Chelsea skipper, his match came to an end shortly after that goal as he picked up a knee injury following a challenge from Suarez. All the Blues will be hoping he makes a quick recovery!

The Blues weren't sitting back on their lead though, and could easily have gone 2-0 up before half time. A great passing move saw Mata clean through on goal, but he put too much power into his shot and it flew just over the bar!

The second half was more even, with Liverpool showing more attacking threat, but Chelsea could have put the games safe when Torres' effort was brilliantly saved by Jones.

Despite being second best for most of the game, Liverpool struck an equaliser with just over 15 minutes left. A Liverpool corner was flicked on by Carragher to Suarez who nodded home from a yard out. However, replays showed the Reds forward had shoved Ramires just before the ball came to him!

With time running out Chelsea were pressing for the winner, but it was Liverpool who had the best chance to take all three points. Suarez found himself running through on goal with only Cech to beat, but the big Blues keeper pulled of a brilliant block to save the day!

Chelsea's next match is on Saturday away to West Brom, managed by former Blues legend Steve Clarke!
