Daniel Sturridge might not be the ideal centre-forward for youngsters to emulate, but his instinct driven attempt a minutes from time, ensured that Liverpool retain their spot in the Premier league standings. Chelsea took the leader in the first interval through Eden Hazard with a brilliant build-up involving Jorginho and Kovacic. Sturridge leveled for the Reds late in the game to ensure Kloop does not record three consecutive defeat to Chelsea.
The goal in the post-match reactions have been debated with many supporters blaming Blues shot-stopper Kepa for staying in the wrong side of the post before the shot was taken. While critics and football fans are of the opinion that the English international observed the poor positioning of the Spanish goalie, very few have admitted that it was an instinct driven attempt which left the keep stranded and shocked.
While Daniel Sturridge makes headline for his ambitious stunner at the Bridge, Chelsea centre-forwards Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata extended their miserable form in-front of goal to six consecutive games. The duo, who were advised during the week by Chelsea legend Didier Drogba to make themselves tough and aggressive failed to trouble Virgil Van Dijk and Jordi Gomez in the central defense.
The Chelsea duo have always waited for chances or opening to be presented to them, when infact they could work for their own ball. They have failed to think out of the box, and these could be the reasons for the woes in the current season. It will be interesting to note that Didier Drogba during his days at the Bridge was prolific because his attempt on goal were guided majorly by his football instinct.
Giroud and Morata must now borrow a leave from the instinct driven leveler of Daniel Sturridge to save Chelsea season.
