Liverpool held by 10-man Chelsea



Chelsea defender, Reece James was sent off in the first half

Chelsea settled for a draw after a dramatic turn of events against Liverpool on Saturday.

The Blues seemed to be in control in the 22nd minute with Kai Havertz’s excellent header but Mohamed Salah’s penalty levelled the scoreline.

The major highlight of the game was 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.
