Liverpool and Chelsea leave in a sad draw


This Saturday, the Premier League started with the clash between Chelsea and Liverpool at 1:30 p.m. on the 21st day. A poster between two sick clubs this season. The Reds were in a very disappointing 8th place. Same story for the Blues who were in 10th place before kick-off. Both teams had the same number of points (28 pts). This meeting was therefore very important for the dynamics. With the multitude of injuries, Graham Potter was betting on an attacking trio of Mount, Ziyech and Havertz up front. Badiashile chained a new tenure in defense and Mudryk, new recruit, was on the bench. On the Liverpool side, Jurgen Klopp also had to deal with an experimental team. Gakpo started up front with Salah and Eliott while Konaté also started.

This Premier League ‘clash’ was a shock in name only, as in reality the show was a long way off in the first act. However, everything had started well with the opener for Chelsea after 2 minutes of play. But Kai Havertz’s goal was canceled for a slight offside position. We then expected a fiery match, rhythmed as the English championship is used to offer us. It was not the case. Both teams seemed sorely lacking in confidence. Cody Gakpo crossed the meeting without weighing, Mohamed Salah showed too many technical inaccuracies. And while Chelsea monopolized the ball, they also failed to use it well. The two teams returned to the locker room with this goalless draw of 0-0.

Little spectacle despite the beautiful entrance of Mudryk

When they returned from the locker room, Liverpool returned with better intentions. Cody Gakpo got a first chance, but his shot was quietly caught by a vigilant Kepa. Hakim Ziyech responded in stride. The Moroccan went off in a series of dribbles in the area but did not fit his shot after eliminating several defenders (60th). Faced with the offensive weakness of both teams, the coaches finally decided to react on the hour mark. Graham Potter finally threw Mykhaylo Mudryk into the deep end. Jurgen Klopp decided to bring in Darwin Nunez to weigh on the London defense, which was too little worried.

Very quickly, Mykhaylo Mudryk brought to his team. The Ukrainian got the best chances of the game. He did not go far from his first goal a few minutes after his entry, but his shot was not on target (66th). Liverpool responded timidly late in the game through Alexander-Arnold failing to take advantage of Nunez’s good work on the left side. But there. Nothing else and the two teams left with a sad 0-0, far from a dream poster. This sucker doesn’t help anyone. Chelsea and Liverpool are treading water in the standings and are not at all reassured. Far from there. We will have to offer much better to hope to move up the rankings. Because there is now a world between them and the teams in the front runners.
