Chelsea blew a chance of going 11 points clear on the Premier League table when their top scorer Diego Costa missed a 77th minute penalty.
David Luiz had earlier given Chelsea the lead with a 25th minute free kick but Anfield exploded in joy when Georginio Wijnaldum pulled an equalizer for Liverpool.
Liverpool went on to hold possession (58% against Chelsea’s 42%) for the rest of the match but failed to make any impact on the scoreline as their opponents also threw away some good chances during gameplay.
Chelsea now sit at 58 points with 23 matches played. Tottenham Hotspur has 47 points from 23 matches while Arsenal who lost at home to Watford equally boasts of 47 points at 3rd place.
