Chelsea are in sixth position, while Liverpool on the other hand are in seventh position after Everton defeated West Brom earlier before the game.

Timo Werna started the game ahead of Giroud, while Ziyech played alongside Mount to support him up front. The game was sweet until the VAR intervene after the referee blown a goal to Chelsea. The goal which Timo Werna scored was controversially rued as offside after the VAR review. The German international star beat Alisson Becker after he chipped the ball pass the out coming goalkeeper, before using his pace to beat Ozan Kabak and poke the ball inside the net.

However the VAR called for an offside check despite so many replays showing that Werna was well in an onside position. The fine lines was called upon by the VAR Officials, which they later concluded that Werna was in an offside position before he scored, much to Chelsea fury. The Blues has been the better side at Anfield stadium today, which they were later rewarded with their fine display, through Mason Mount goal.
