• Liverpool hold Chelsea, in a low-quality 0-0 draw at the Bridge

Chelsea and Liverpool played out another 0-0 draw this season at Stamford Bridge, just two days after the sacking of Graham Potter. Bruno Saltor took charge of the game against The Reds, who were looking to bounce back to winning ways after their defeat away to City over the weekend.

Despite Chelsea fielding an expensive XI captained by N’golo Kante, it was a game starved of real quality play. Liverpool looked toothless in the first half as Chelsea players tried to respond to Potter’s sacking on the pitch.

A couple of half chances fell to The Blues, but the half ended 0-0 with Reece James’ goal ruled out because of Enzo Fernández’s knee that strayed just past Liverpool’s last defender. Mateo Kovacic also missed a big Chance for the London side, before Kai Havertz scored what many thought would be the winner. VAR ruled out Havertz’s goal after the officials judged him to have handled the ball before beating Alisson.

The Blues were the better side in the second half, even with the addition of Mohamed Salah. With the result, Chelsea remain 11th on the log, with Liverpool just 3 places above them.
