EPL: Sturridge Saves Liverpool From Defeat Against Chelsea
Liverpool escaped defeat at Stamford Bridge of Saturday in their Premier League clash against Chelsea thanks to a late goal scored by super sub, Daniel Sturridge.
Sturridge scored within three minutes of coming off the bench to earn Liverpool a late 1-1 draw against former club Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
The English striker sent a long-range shot dipping over Kepa Arrizabalaga in the final minute of normal time to cancel out Eden Hazard's crisp finish, which for so long looked like being the winner.
Sturridge is now the seventh player to score 50+ goals in the Premier League for Liverpool; joining the likes of Fowler, Gerrard, Owen, Suárez, Torres, Kuyt on the exclusive list.
Liverpool, who had two efforts kept out on the line prior to
their late leveller, drop points for the first time this season but remain
unbeaten after seven games.
Victory for fellow unbeaten side Chelsea would have taken them level on points with Manchester City at the summit, but instead it is Liverpool who sit alongside the reigning champions in what is shaping up to be a tight title race.
Nigeria international, Victor Moses was also given a role by Maurizo Sarri is Saturday’s explosive encounter as he came in for Brazilian star Willian late in the second half.
