Chelsea and Liverpool played out a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, and it was a brilliant game between two quality sides who gave their all to win the game.

After 26 minutes of play, the Reds were already 2-0 up, but Chelsea bounced back with goals from Mateo Kovacic and Christian Pulisic to level the scores just before half time.

Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy was also in brilliant form as he made some fine saves to deny Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah from scoring.

After the game, Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold admitted that the Chelsea goalkeeper was world class.

“It was an even second half,” Alexander-Arnold told Liverpool’s official website.

“They probably had a lot more of the ball than us, especially in our defensive third and in and around our box, but we defended well and didn’t give them too many chances.

“When Caoimh was needed he’s pulled off two world-class saves in the first and second half and he’s stepped into Ali’s shoes and done really well today.

“It’s a credit to him, but we defended well and never gave them too many chances and we had the better chances in the second half.

“But when you are up against a world-class team with a world-class goalkeeper he makes world-class saves. So, like I said, I think a point apiece is fair.”
