Sturridge's verdict on sensational strike at Chelsea

Virgil van Dijk in line for start vs Chelsea despite rib injury Sturridge's verdict on sensational strike at Chelsea

Moments later a quick Chelsea free-kick caught Liverpool napping and Alisson produced a brilliant block to deny Hazard his second.

'We had big chances.

Olivier Giroud and substitute Alvaro Morata offered very little in the way of threat for Chelsea, and the two strikers have combined for just one Premier League goal this season - but Sarri said that he is not prepared to consider benching both in favour of a false nine system just yet.

Roberto Firmino saw a header hooked off the line by David Luiz as the visitors kept Chelsea pinned back, before Sturridge rescued a result with a curling strike from almost 30 yards out that left Kepa with no chance.

"It was a good goal, the boys worked tirelessly all game", Sturridge told BT Sport postmatch.

The Blues were on course to move level on points with leaders Manchester City when Eden Hazard raced clear to score his second goal of the week against the Reds.

Salah scored 32 Premier League goals last season but he is yet to replicate the same form that crowned him PFA Player of the Year.

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Chelsea will on Saturday evening, September 29, host rivals Liverpool in their Premier League match day 7 encounter at Stamford Bridge which will be a fight of the team that will stay on top of the log. "Pedro [already] has three goals".

It's hard. We had chances, we played fantastic football.

So it's all on Hazard then!

Klopp, who replaced the Egyptian with Xherdan Shaqiri just before the midway point of the second half, acknowledged that Salah had fallen below his usual standards and said he could not understand some of the player's decision-making in risky areas of the pitch.

Saturday's strike was Sturridge's fourth goal in seven appearances across all competitions this season, yet only two of those have been in the starting team with the majority coming off the bench.

But the dead eye for goal shown by the Egyptian last season to earn that accolade ahead of the likes of Lionel Messi and Hazard was missing as Liverpool paid for a wasteful start. He is simply too good a player to struggle for too long. "He had a great game".
