...
Peeep, peeeeeep, peeeeeeeeeep! Full time!
...
90+2' Liverpool give the ball away in the Chelsea half! Can the Blues fashion one last opening? 
...
90+1' Salah nearly restores Liverpool's lead! Milner did well to find the forward from the right, and his shot is saved by Courtois. Corner. 
...
Three minutes to be added on...
...
89' Substitutions for Liverpool: Lallana replaces Coutinho, Mane replaces Oxlade-Chamberlain. 
...
87' Salah is one v one against Cahill but his touch is heavy and the defender is able to pass it back to Courtois! Half a chance!
...
That was the silliest goal Mignolet will concede. A cross, lads and lasses, misjudged by the custodian. A lucky goal, but Chelsea deserve one for all their efforts. 
...
85' GOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL! Willian for Chelsea!
...
84' Chelsea have stretched play well, but Liverpool have so far managed to clear the crosses and win the second balls. The latter is key with Chelsea having so many attackers now!
...
82' Good chance for Chelsea! Zappacosta's cross finds Alonso, and instead of deftly sidefooting it, he tries to smash it and it's way over! Dear me!
...
80' It's end to end now! Chelsea have to attack, and Liverpool have an obligation against shutting up shop. Never expect a dull game at Merseyside, lads and lasses. 
...
79' Chelsea are finding it easy in the Liverpool half because the hosts are still so open! Matip just about clears the ball off Alonso's feet after he is found by a smashing Fabregas pass. 
...
78' Salah does brilliantly to hold on to the ball in the final third and find Wijnaldum. The Dutchman's shot is blocked for a corner by Cahill! From the corner, Chelsea counter but Hazard is found offside! What a waste!
...
77' Substitution for Chelsea: Pedro replaces Bakayoko.
...
76' Fabregas nearly does what he is brought on to do. A stunning pass for Morata, but the striker just drifted to an offside position. Liverpool will have to watch out for that pass. 
...
75' It has been a fairly well-mannered game so far, which isn't generally the case with Liverpool-Chelsea games. No bookings so far. 
...
74' Substitution for Chelsea: Fabregas replaces Drinkwater. 
...
73' Cross after cross from the right flank as Zappacosta has gotten the better of Moreno quite a few times. Liverpool have thus far managed to clear most of them well. 
...
In all the excitement after the goal, I forgot to mention that Wijnaldum replaced Sturridge. More men in midfield. 4-4-2 it seems. 
...
70' Liverpool do well to avoid Hazard and Morata from combining and start a counter of their own with Moreno sprinting on the left. His cross is overhit and Courtois collects safely.  
...
69' Jeez, Henderson! you'd think they'll sit back, but no. Bring on the geggenpress! The skipper makes a sprint from midfield to shut out Cahill in the Chelsea half. The Blues manage to keep possession, however. 
...
67' Chelsea create a chance immediately, but Azpilicueta's pass gets away from Hazard. A bit of miscontrol from the Belgian. Chelsea have the ball and are probing again from the right. 
...
Well, can he stop scoring? Coutinho starts the move and his pass is nearly intercepted by Bakayoko, well nearly! It deflects kindly for Chamberlain, who toe-pokes it for Salah and the Egyptian obliges with a smart finish past Courtois. We have our goal, and the game could open up more now!
...
65' GOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL for Liverpool! Mo Salah!
...
63' What a block by Azpilicueta! Salah releases Sturridge on the left, but the striker's shot is blocked acrobatically by Azpi who seemed to have injured himself in the process.
