`The victory of this match belongs to the neutral audience, and Man City,` journalist Rob Smyth commented on The Guardian after the final whistle signal from referee Anthony Taylor.

Pulisic’s regret at not being able to defeat goalkeeper Kelleher at close range, in the 62nd minute of the match between Chelsea and Liverpool in the Premier League on the evening of January 2.

True to pre-match rumors, coach Thomas Tuchel did not register Romelu Lukaku to welcome Liverpool.

Chelsea entered the game better and had a good chance in the seventh minute.

On the opposite side of the field, Sadio Mane went through a series of nine unsuccessful matches before this match.

Mane shot into an empty goal to open the score.

Chelsea fans may think that Mane does not deserve to be on the field, as he only received a yellow card for elbowing Azpilicueta in the face in the first seconds.

Liverpool played much better after the opening goal, and they increased the gap thanks to the shining moments of their stars.

Salah calls, Mateo Kovacic answers.

Kovacic’s beautiful swipe shortened the score to 1-2.

Chelsea pushed their team up and applied intense pressure in the final minutes of the first half to find an equalizer, and they were satisfied.

If the first half is a stage for attacking players, the second half honors the goalkeepers.

On the other goal, Kelleher also had the opportunity to show off his talent in the 62nd minute. Alonso hung the ball into the penalty area for Pulisic to volley from close range and send the ball wide.

In the remaining minutes, both teams played firmly and did not want to lose points.

In the next round, Chelsea will be away to Man City on January 15, while Liverpool will host Brentford a day later.
