The Reds take on Napoli and Manchester City between now and the 7th of October, and you can be sure that Klopp will give Sturridge a few more minutes to impress.

The draw ended Liverpool's 100% start to the Premier League season - and they finished the day behind defending champions Manchester City on goal difference. "When he came into the dressing was really loud and the boys are all really happy for him because he really is in a good moment".

Sturridge, who joined Liverpool from Chelsea in 2013, was keen after the match to chat with Gianfranco Zola, the former Blues player who is back as a coach under Maurizio Sarri. Maybe he try to be like me. "A great player. legend".

Milner has carried that form over to this season, making the second-most passes of any Liverpool player in the league (407), creating the third-most chances (10), registering the joint-most assists (two) and already scoring two goals across all competitions.

But it was the drama at Anfield that stole the spotlight as Chelsea became the first team to stop Liverpool winning this season.

Lawrenson was full of praise for Willian and amid Hazard receiving huge plaudits at present, expressed his view that the Brazilian is not too far behind his team-mate.

While the away side controlled the latter stages, Georginio Wijnaldum almost gifted Chelsea the win with a horror back pass to Alisson, but the goalkeeper just managed to beat the oncoming Alvaro Morata to the ball.

"Alonso, there's space, Luiz there's a space in there and I think that Liverpool will be able to exploit those spaces".

"But at the end I am really very happy - first of all with the performance and I think also a draw is the right result".

"We know much more what will happen on Saturday because we've seen it before, so we will use the two days to prepare", Klopp said.

Sturridge made Hazard pay for his wastefulness as the Liverpool striker came off the substitutes' bench to score a brilliant equaliser with one minute of normal time to play.
