Chelsea vs Liverpool highlights - Daniel Sturridge scored a late goal to give Liverpool a point at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Liverpool's unbeaten start to the Premier League season continued after Daniel Sturridge rescued a point in the dying minutes against Chelsea.

Wright revealed he is predicting Liverpool to win 2-1 and added, "I've given a goal to Salah and Mane". Maybe they [Liverpool] are one step ahead but I am starting to think we can recover in one season.

The England forward is now the top scorer at the John Smith's Stadium in the Premier League with four goals in two appearances - more than any Huddersfield players.

Eden Hazard's defensive contribution in the 1-1 draw against Liverpool on Saturday pleased Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri. Today's goal was Hazard's second against Liverpool in the space of 72 hours.

The Blues handed Liverpool their first loss of the season in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.

Chelsea threatened again soon after, with N'Golo Kante playing a quick free kick to release Hazard, but Alisson was equal to his shot.

"We knew it would be tough but I think it's a good point at the end, and hopefully we can use this momentum from late in the game, scoring like that, to take into the last two games before the global break". "You know the characteristics: Giroud is very important for [teammates], and I think Morata in the last 25 minutes was more aggressive than usual".

"He's fantastic football player, he had a full preseason and he's in the best shape since I've known him".

"So it might take time before he we see him at his best and he needs to get into these situations more, but having done what he did with Monaco - and he is a bright footballer too, don't forget - he will get to grips with it, I've no doubts about that".

Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling has been involved in 35 Premier League goals since the start of last season (22 goals, 13 assists) - a figure bettered only by Liverpool's Mohamed Salah (46) and Kane (38).

The Reds next travel to face Napoli in the Champions League group stage, before hosting Man City at Anfield next weekend in what is bound to be a high-intensity fixture.
