Willian Borges da Silva came off the bench to score the equalizer, as Chelsea held Liverpool to a 1-1 draw at Anfield, Saturday evening.

Jurgen Klopp sprung a surprise in his team selection, as he opted for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain ahead of Sadio Mane in attack. The German coach also left out Giorgino Wijnaldum and handed Daniel Sturridge a start in the crunch encounter.

The move paid off, as the Reds dominated possession and took the lead in the second half through in-form Mohammed Salah.

The Egyptian winger latched onto a loose ball in the area and slotted past Thibaut Courtois.

However, Willian ensured the Premier League champions left Anfield with a point, as his improvised finish beat Simon Mignolet.

The result leaves Liverpool in 5th place on 23 points, while Chelsea are 3rd with 26 points.
