The Blues' best chances in the game came in the first half with Kai Havertz and Mason Mount failing to make the most of their clear cut chances.

Liverpool thought they had scored in the 69th minute through Joel Matip's header but VAR ruled it out for offside and both sides ended up sharing the spoils are an incredible duel of 90 minutes.

Kai Havertz and equally Romelu Lukaku who was introduced from the bench for a second successive game, though they had put Chelsea ahead at different points in the second half and extra-time respectively, but a controversial offside decision denied both a penalty-shootout as the final decider which Liverpool won.
