SKY REMAINS BLUE: CHELSEA MISS OUT ON 3 POINTS VS LIVERPOOL BUT STILL EXTEND LEAD AT THE TOP
What a night! what a game! what a miss! How the game progressed mattered so much to every football analyst,pundits as well as experts because they called it a title decider fixture in that Liverpool were run away winners in the reverse fixture at Stamford bridge were they won 2-1.But the Liverpool of tonight had lost so much steam, confidence coming to this game winning just one game in Five meetings after they lost Saido Mane to the African nations cup weeks ago..though he was brought in later in the game but could do little to change the complexion of the game..
Both managers started their best eleven as Liverpool had the better possession early stages but Chelsea’s backline was tight enough to keep Firminho and Lalana at bay..it was Chelsea who drew first blood against the run of play when David Luis struck a fanastic free-kick from 25yards after Eden Hazard was fouled..Chelsea had some counter attacking display that would have sealed the game but no end product was forthcoming..The second half started with the home side on the ascendancy desperately in search of an equalizer as the anfield faithfuls were rousing their team to find a goal..
The pressure was on and they finally got it through Wynaldum’s header before the 70minute Mark..Philippe Coutinho later made way for Mane who looked drained from Senegal’s disappointing exit from AFCON.Chelsea had a life line when Joel Matip brought down Diego Costa in the box off a quick break and Mark clattenburg didn’t think twice before pointing to the box..One would have expected Luis or Willian to take as Hazard had gone out for Pedro..Costa stepped up and missed..as Mignolet saved a point for the reds..In the end the points were shared 1-1 it ended as Chelsea are now 9points clear..with news sinking in that Arsenal had lost to Watford at the Emirates..
Ngolo Kante kpef wella today but na David Luis be MVP..I no go flogg any player cos dem nor loose..Next up is Arsenal.we go pepper dem wella..
Chelsea is the club!
blue is the colour! !
Conte is the Man!
