(3) Liverpool's Pressing Prowess:
The trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Luis Diaz were simply amazing for the Reds as they attacked the Blues defence. The experience of the players have been key in every game against their opposition which has helped them in the Premier League.
(4) The game was of high intensity:
The game lived up to its expectations for fans of both clubs and the neutrals. Chelsea and Liverpool created a lot of chances for their teams and also had great last-ditch defending from their backline with kept fans at the edge of tenor seats.
(5) Kepa Arrizabalaga:
The Spaniard was brought into the game for the last few minutes by Thomas Tuchel to be the hero of the game but he ended up being the villain. Kepa has saved a lot of penalties for the Blues but against Liverpool, he missed the most decisive penalty of the game.
