Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea Highlights

Christian Benteke’s late header cancels out Eden Hazard’s brilliant solo goal as Liverpool keep alive their hopes of a top-six finish.

The Chelsea winger fired a low shot into the corner after a dazzling run to record his fourth goal in four games.

But Benteke secured a point for the Reds in added time when he pounced after an error from Asmir Begovic.

Liverpool remain eighth and are within three points of sixth-placed Southampton with a game left.


Post Match Interviews

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: “The result tonight was not important, what’s important is that we take the right information out of the game.

“We started very well, and when we play like that with our compact defending we can be good. In a game like this, the crowd force you to attack. We have to develop a lot.

“I like it here. It’s a nice place and a world-class club.”

Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink: “The team reacted very well. We played all game for the win and got an unlucky present in the last minute. We should have killed it off and I’m disappointed not to have the three points.

“Hazard was terrific and has been growing in fitness for some weeks. It’s good to see. He had to suffer a lot with injuries this year but I’m very happy he’s back.

“The players showed they love to play football.”
