Scoreless at the half, but plenty of action.

Can’t take your eyes off this one just yet, which is a good thing, I suppose, as Chelsea have weathered the early storm from Liverpool and then looked like the far more likely side to score before the hosts finished the half the better of the two teams.

Eden Hazard has been on fire and has posed a threat every time he’s managed to get on the ball. His low shot through a screen almost flashed by Mignolet for Chelsea’s first of several chances in the game. Drinkwater has made several excellent runs as the most dynamic of Chelsea’s three midfielders, with Bakayoko generally busy trying to contain Liverpool’s right side. Zappacosta has also done well against Moreno, though his final pass could use a bit of improvement.

Chelsea have stuck to Salah fairly well, and as long as Mané and Firmino remain on the bench, Chelsea can largely concentrate on continuing to stop him (and Coutinho from range, which Drinkwater’s done well).

This could go either way at the moment.

COME ON, CHELSEA!
