Bad luck, VAR twice for Chelsea: Liverpool escape with a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge

Bad luck, VAR twice for Chelsea: Liverpool escape with a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge

Liverpool (43 points) ranks eighth in the English Premier League, while Chelsea (39) remains in eleventh place. The trio of Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United (50 each) are currently vying for third and fourth places in the Champions League and are already seven points ahead of Liverpool. And Brighton & Hove Albion (46) is better in the race than the Reds for team manager Klopp: the outside team won 2-0 (1-0) at Bournemouth in the evening, the sixth.

Meanwhile, goalless encounters between Chelsea and Liverpool have become a habit. For the fourth time in a row, the two teams are tied at 0-0 in all competitions – and in platform time.

Chelsea were closer to winning the first match after parting ways with manager Graham Potter. Recently sacked from Bayern Munich, Julian Nagelsmann is said to be one of the favorites to succeed, and the Blues have started strong under caretaker coach Bruno Saltor. German player Kai Havertz was involved in dangerous scenes over and over again, not counting a goal for Rick James (24) due to a tight offside position.


Havertz comments on Bayern’s interest: “Almost a bit boring.”

Liverpool looked emotional three days after a 4-1 defeat by champions Manchester City, but also became more dangerous before half-time. However, the goal struck Chelsea again: the ball jumped into the net from Havertz’s arm, and the goal was not counted again.
