Luis Suarez scores equalizer for Liverpool in 1-1 draw against Chelsea
Forgetting about their poor start to the season and the problems they have faced in defense and attack, Liverpool fought valiantly to acquire a 1-1 draw against the Champions League winner Chelsea on Sunday night.
The draw saw Chelsea drop from second to third place on the Premier League table. Manchester City replaced the London outfit, who are now three points away from the Premier League leaders Manchester United.
Meanwhile, Liverpool continues to battle in the middle of the table. The Merseyside club recorded their sixth draw of the season against Chelsea. Liverpool has accumulated 12 points from 11 Premier League games so far.
Liverpool’s veteran defender Jamie Carragher believes his side was worthy of a point following their draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea grabbed the lead in the first half with a strong header from John Terry.
Unfortunately, the Chelsea skipper was stretchered off the pitch after an accidental collision with Luis Suarez. The Liverpool striker also scored the equalizer for Liverpool later in the game.
“I think first half Chelsea were on top but in the second we came out and great credit to the lads. We probably deserved a draw in the end, the way we battled in the second half,” said Jamie Carragher, who was in his first Premier League start of the season.
“The Premier League is a step up (from the cups) with all its intensity and Chelsea is a difficult place to come. If I am picked I give everything; it is down to the manager, he is the boss.”
Jamie Carragher assisted Luis Suarez with Liverpool’s only goal at Stamford Bridge. When Jamie Carragher was questioned about whether not playing for Liverpool was frustrating the England international had a split answer.
“Yes and no. I want to play but I understand. I am never going to cause a problem,” Jamie Carragher said.
Luis Suarez and Jose Enrique recorded spectacular form for Liverpool. The striker and the left-back tracked back and showed beautiful chemistry in Liverpool’s attack. The duo nearly provided Liverpool with the winner moments away from the final whistle.
“Most important is the performance from the team. Suarez is an amazing player, a key player for us,” said Jose Enrique, who just recently returned to the first team following an injury.
