Chelsea and Liverpool recorded an even score on Sunday evening in their 2023/24 English Premier League opening match at Stamford Bridge.
Colombian professional footballer, Luiz Diaz, put Jurgen Klopp’s side in an early lead in the 18 minutes of the match on Sunday evening.
Egyptian star, Mohamed Salah also saw the back of the net before his goal was cancelled as Video Referee Assistant (VAR) ruled that the player was offside.
Thanks to Axel Diasi, who recorded his Premier League debut today as he helped Chelsea back on track with a 37-minute goal.
Naija News reports that Chelsea recently signed the French defender on the sum of £38.8m deal from Monaco.
Like Liverpool’s Salah, Ben Chilwell also saw his goal ruled out in the first half following video assistant referee checks.
Despite half chances for Diaz and another debutant, Nicolas Jackson, neither side could capitalise on their opportunities and prevent a fifth consecutive draw between the sides.
Chelsea’s new manager, Mauricio Pochettino, will have hoped to start his reign with a victory but there was plenty for him to be satisfied about as his new team recovered from a shaky start to deliver many encouraging signs.
