Pulišić with the Great opportunity to 3: 2! The American drops Alonso’s flank from the left from nine meters in the middle onto the guest box. With presence of mind, Liverpool goalkeeper Kelleher throws up his arms and saves the ball.



With a one-two with Salah, Mané comes half left in front of the last opposing line and circles the ball from a good 20 meters on the half-high left corner. Mendy fends off the attempt to the side.



Salah missed Mendy everything away! After a cleared corner, the Egyptian picks up speed after Jota’s allusion to the half-left. When Kanté is closely guarded, he lifts his head and sees that Mendy is standing far in front of his box. He lifts the ball at full speed and a good 20 meters to the left corner. Mendy takes off and prevents the impact with the fingertips of his right hand.



Even after the restart, the pace of the game is extremely high; especially the blues attack like a raid and extremely determined. The hosts are greedy and really want to usurp the lead.



The first chance after the break belongs to Chelsea! Alonso, sent by Kanté into the half-left interface of the guest defense, puts the ball in the penalty area on his right foot and targets the long corner from a good 13 meters. The ball sails far over the guest box.



Neither Thomas Tuchel nor Klopp representative Pepijn Lijnders made any personnel changes during the break.



Welcome back to the second pass at Stamford Bridge! Without the corona infected Jürgen Klopp, the Reds started extremely shaky, but gained the necessary self-confidence through a very efficient exploitation of opportunities. A clear half-time lead seemed highly likely in the 40th minute, but with Kovačić’s dream goal, the offensive knot of the Tuchel troop was undone. Will Chelsea continue the momentum after the break?



Kick-off second half



Half-time conclusion:
It’s 2-2 at the break of an extremely entertaining Premier League top match between Chelsea FC and Liverpool FC. In an intense initial phase, determined by the blues in terms of ball possession shares, with a top chance missed on both sides, the Reds seized the lead in minute nine; Mané punished a failure of Chalobah. Subsequently, the home team also set the tone, but did not convert the advantages into further clear conclusions. On the other side, the guests struck again coldly through Salah (26th). The Londoners then lost their dominance; When the balance of power was balanced, the guests dominated the midfield and had little trouble keeping the ball away from Kelleher’s box. In a rapid final phase, Chelsea then made the connection out of the blue, as Kovačić netted extremely well (42.). But that’s not all: Pulišić equalized in stoppage time (45th + 1). See you soon!



Chelsea is even sniffing at the break guide! At the end of a quick counter-attack, Havertz sticks to Konaté on the right side of the sixteen, but spits the ball to Mount. It pushes distress from eight meters onto the left corner and only misses it by a very thin margin.



Goal for Chelsea FC, 2-2 through Christian Pulišić
Pulišić makes the Stamford Bridge shake! On the half-left, Rüdiger and Kanté pass the bouncing balls straight ahead of their opponents. Pulišić only has the storming keeper Kelleher in front of him and overcomes him from a half-left twelve meters with a lob into the far corner.



Official added time (minutes): 4



Tooor for Chelsea FC, 1: 2 by Mateo Kovačić
… and the due free kick leads via detours to the connecting gate! Alonson’s direct attempt in the direction of the short corner hits keeper Kelleher on the central edge of the sixteen. Kovačić unpacks a shot with the right instep after two quick steps back. The ball claps into the mesh from the top right inner post.



Havertz is brought down by Milner on the right wing not far from the baseline …



After another low pass by Alexander-Arnold in the center, Salah only has defender Chalobah in front of him. The youngster can stop the Egyptian in the sixteenth with a risky but fair tackle. He then stands in the way of the attacker’s shot and fakes it to a corner. That doesn’t bring the LFC anything.



As a result of the second goal conceded, there is little convergence for the Blues in forward gear. In this phase they rarely find a way into the last third of the field.



Jota creates the breakthrough on the left and fits flat and hard in front of the box from the baseline. Both Mané and Salah miss in the sixteen.



The fact that Chelsea are likely to emerge from the first half hour with a two-goal disadvantage is pretty bitter. Actually, the Tuchel team is the better so far, causing the Reds big problems at times.



Goal for Liverpool FC, 0-2 through Mo Salah
The Reds extend their lead! Thanks to Alexander-Arnold’s high pass, Salah gets behind the opposing defensive chain on the right. He claims the ball against Alonso and lifts halfway up from the right pentagon into the short corner.



Salah runs after Fabinho’s pass into the depths alone towards Mendy, but with his left-footed shot from a good 14 meters he gets stuck on the opposing goalkeeper. In addition, the Egyptian was clearly sidelined when he passed his colleague.



Alonso packs a direct attempt with the left instep after Azpilicueta’s high cross from the right flank from the left side of the sixteen. The ball slips over his foot and sails towards the upper tier.



Yellow card for Christian Pulišić (Chelsea FC)
The ex-Dortmund hit the ball with his straddle against Jota, but slipped so ruthlessly into the bones of the Portuguese that referee Taylor punished the boarding with a yellow card.



Alonso is in the sixteen center addressee of a precise flight ball by Thiago Silva. If the track is clear, however, his first contact is bad; the ball rolls into the left doorway.



In the live table, Liverpool again overtook today’s opponents and reduced the gap to leaders Manchester City to nine points. The LFC has a catch-up game up its sleeve against the Sky Blues.



Goal for Liverpool FC, 0-1 by Sadio Mané
Mané puts the Reds in the lead! Henderson’s half-high ball into the offensive center wants to clear Chelsea’s defender Chalobah incomprehensibly with his head. He involuntarily hangs up for Mané. The goalkeeper Mendy curves around in the penalty area and completes from ten meters in the center into the gate, which is only guarded by Thiago Silva.



Pulišić fails best Location at Kelleher! Havertz forced a ball win by running high against Alexander-Arnold on the right side of the penalty area. His American colleague appears free in front of the storming keeper Kelleher, but he can spit the ball off his foot with his right hand.



Salah with the first possibility for the guest! Mané picks up speed against advanced hosts in the half-left offensive corridor and shifts inwards with a half-high pass. Despite close guard by Rüdiger, Salah takes off from a good 13 meters with the right inner instep. In the half-left corner, Mendy parries to one side.



The blues determine the first moments with high possession values. They couldn’t turn their first corner into a dangerous offensive scene.



Yellow card for Sadio Mané (Liverpool FC)
Mané saw the first yellow card after just 15 seconds. The ex-Salzburg hit Azpilicueta with his right elbow in the face. Tuchel’s loud demands for a dismissal are not completely incomprehensible.



Chelsea versus Liverpool – passage one at Stamford Bridge is open!


The teams have just stepped onto the lawn.


The Reds, who won the last two guest appearances at Stamford Bridge and who have not yet won three attempts in London in the English elite class this season (two draws, one defeat), are compared to the 0: 1 away defeat at Leicester City FC three personnel changes. Alisson and Matip and Oxlade-Chamberlain (Bank) who may be missing with positive corona tests will be replaced by Kelleher, Konaté and Milner.


On the side of the Blues, who got a 1-1 draw in the first leg in Anfield at the end of August despite being short 45 minutes and who have already given up eleven points after leading the current Premier League season, coach Thomas Tuchel after the 1: 1 draws at home against Brighton & Hove Albion FC five times. Instead of Christensen, James (both not in the squad), Lukaku (suspended), Jorginho and Hudson-Odoi (both on the bench), Alonso, Thiago Silva, Kanté, Chalobah and Havertz start.


Liverpool FC also missed a successful end to the 2021 calendar year. After the loss of the home game against Leeds United FC, the Reds showed a decent performance at Leicester City FC, but lost 1-0 due to an inadequate exploitation of chances. Today’s guest appearance in West London will be tackled without head coach Klopp, who is in quarantine due to a corona infection.


Chelsea FC is not able to produce winning streaks this season and last won two Premier League games in a row at the end of October. After the 3-1 away win at Aston Villa FC on Boxing Day, Lukaku’s headball hit (28th) in Wednesday’s home game against Brighton & Hove Albion FC meant he was on the way to another three, but they conceded in stoppage time but still the compensation. In addition to the unsatisfactory sporting situation, there is the unrest around Lukaku, who recently made his wish to return to Milan public and is therefore not on the matchday squad today.


Since the second place in the table receives Liverpool FC with Chelsea FC, the designation as a top game is certainly not wrong, but does not adequately describe the balance of power in the top three ranks of the Premier League. After leaders Manchester City FC won 2-1 at Arsenal FC with a goal in stoppage time yesterday, the Blues and Reds are eleven and twelve points behind the Sky Blues, respectively.


Hello and welcome to the Premier League early on Sunday evening! On matchday 21, Chelsea FC will host Liverpool FC. Blues and Reds face each other on the lawn of Stamford Bridge from 5:30 p.m. our time.
