fourth minute, giving Liverpool the lead for the first time in the game.


After Arnold provided a wonderful interface to Diaz, who was alone in Mendy, striking a

ground ball that the Senegalese goalkeeper excelled in, Liverpool lost a real chance to open

the scoring in the eighth minute.


Chelsea came close to score in the 23rd minute when Mont fired a cross cross from the right

side to Pulisic, who was unrestricted inside the box and struck a direct ground ball that went

beyond the post.

Chelsea failed to capitalize on a wonderful pass from Pulisic to Alonso inside the area in the

28th minute, and Alonso was one of a kind with Alisson, hitting a ball that the Brazilian

goalkeeper handled brilliantly.


In the 33rd minute, Liverpool were dealt a major setback as Mohamed Salah exited the field

with a muscular injury and was replaced by Diogo Jota.


While Robertson sent a cross from the left side in the 45th minute, followed by Jota’s shot on the

bird from within the area that went over the crossbar.


Lukaku answered with a thunderous drive from inside the box that went over the crossbar in

the 45th minute.
