Manchester City is now 10 points clear of Chelsea and 11 of Liverpool after they both faced a 2-2 draw on Sunday. Blues and Reds lost crucial points which gave chance to Guardiola’s side to take a massive lead in the points table.

Chelsea FC and Liverpool FC lost crucial two points when they were against each other at Stamford Bridge (Chelsea’s home stadium) on Sunday. Both the teams had a great game but neither of them was able to find the winning goal and thus they had to satisfy themselves with a single point. Manchester City has now 10 points clear of Chelsea and 11 of Liverpool in the Premier League points table. However, Jurgen Klopp’s men still have one game in hand.

Talking about this game, Liverpool and Chelsea both had an amazing first-half with all the goals which were scored in this game, came in this half only. Liverpool started the game very well as they were 1-0 up inside 10 minutes. Liverpool’s forward Sadio Mane scored the opening goal of this game after Chelsea’s defender Trevoh Chalobah made a mistake and gave the ball away to the Reds’ forward. After that goal, Chelsea was in the front foot at Stamford Bridge as they had the ball for most of the time but couldn’t find an equalizer. In the 26th minute, Jurgen Klopp’s men found another goal and their lead was double now. It was the man in form, Mohamed Salah with an emphatic finish that beat Chelsea’s goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.

Chelsea was two goals behind after Salah’s amazing finish but they never gave up and kept on attacking. They were able to create a lot of chances but couldn’t convert them into goals. Three minutes before the halftime whistle, Chelsea pulled one goal back as it was a wonderful volley goal from midfielder Mateo Kovacic from outside the box which gave no chance for the goalkeeper to save that. Chelsea did score another goal in the regulation time of the first half as this time it was Christian Pulisic who scored a great goal after amazing gameplay from the host.

The second half sees no goal and thus, both the teams had to settle for a draw. However, the home side had the best chances to score and win the game but Liverpool’s organized defence didn’t let the host score goals. With this draw, Tuchel’s men remain in 2nd place in the points table.
