A largely even first half saw both teams miss a couple good chances. It also saw a goal line clearance from the returning Antonio Rüdiger and another goal from Eden Hazard.
The second half was an equally enthralling affair, with both sides missing glorious chances, both goalkeepers earning their world record transfer fees, and ... both defenses managing to keep the other side scoreless.
And then, Sturridge scored a ridiculous goal out of nowhere.
1-1. Feels like a bit of a defeat.
