Victor Moses stars as Liverpool hold Chelsea

Ex-Super Eagles midfielder, Victor Moses, got a rare cameo Premier League appearance on Saturday in Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Liverpool.

Moses, 27, got Maurizio Sarri’s nod, replacing Willian in the 73rd minute.

However, it was Eden Hazard’s sublime goal which looked like giving the Blues another victory over the Reds.

The Belgian, whose brilliant late goal gave the Blues a Carabao Cup win at Anfield in midweek, struck after 26 minutes at Stamford Bridge.

He rounded off a lovely Chelsea move by firing low past keeper Alisson after being put through by Mateo Kovacic.

That looked like ending Liverpool’s unbeaten record this season and taking Chelsea above them and level on points with leaders Manchester City.

But Daniel Sturridge, on as a substitute like Moses, bent a spectacular 30-yard shot beyond Blues keeper Kepa and into the corner of the net.

Mohamed Salah, also playing against his former club, almost equalised shortly after Hazard’s goal.

He rounded Kepa after getting away from Marcos Alonso to collect Roberto Firmino’s flick, but Toni Rudiger was able to get back and clear the Egyptian forward’s effort off the line.

Sadio Mane was denied by a fine save from Kepa early in the second half and Xherdan Shaqiri missed a glorious chance to level when he poked wide after being found by Andy Robertson’s cross.
