Chelsea and Liverpool draw in thriller as both sides battle for Caicedo

Chelsea and Liverpool played out a thrilling 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, in a match that showcased the attacking quality of both sides and the defensive deficiencies that have made Moises Caicedo a prized target for both clubs.

Liverpool dominated the early stages, with Mohamed Salah striking the bar before the Egypt forward delivered a stunning pass for Luis Diaz to slide home the opening goal after 18 minutes.

Chelsea, in their first Premier League game under new manager Mauricio Pochettino, rallied and drew level with an equaliser from new signing Axel Disasi, who scored from six yards after Liverpool failed to clear a set-piece.

Both sides had further chances to win the game, with Liverpool keeper Alisson saving well from Ben Chilwell and Nicolas Jackson, but neither side could find a breakthrough.
