Liverpool's Mohamed Salah Scores Against His Former Side Chelsea

"We changed the system, Danny Drinkwater was on the pitch and then we were a bit more defensive", Hazard added.

There was no shortage of talent on the bench today.

Chelsea's Eden Hazard has said he goes easy in training to allow his body to recover from the kicks he takes during matches.

Chelsea's bench proved to be more decisive.

"I say I wanted to shoot".

"I always try to do my best, play my best football, try to score goals".

The atmosphere at Anfield was boisterous as ever, and the Liverpool players obviously used it to their advantage early on as they sought to force mistakes with their high press.

Looking at the bench on Saturday and Los Blancos were left, well blank.

In a fixture carrying so much importance, it might have done the German tactician a whole lot of good if he'd started his best players in a concerted effort to win the game.

This is in no way a dig at Daniel Sturridge and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (who had a good game), but Liverpool's starting triumvirate have developed a good understanding and it was a somewhat perplexing decision to rotate his attacking options.

Liverpool were the only side Antonio Conte failed to beat last season and was hoping to break this streak.

While some may be of the opinion that the attacker was basically trying to make things happen for his side, others may condemn his selfishness and inefficiency as simply trying to do things on his own.

One position Zidane needs to fill in the next transfer window is in goal because Keylor Navas has been sorely missed. The scoreline read all square at the break.

"Playing from that right side as a left-footer - he's very quick and very direct. When he gets a sight at goal, more often than not, he's a fantastic finisher".

The first goal of the game came in the 65th minute from the Anfield pharaoh Mohamed Salah, assisted via runs by Philippe Coutinho in the box.

Last season Real's double pursuit of European and domestic glory hinged on the depth of their squad but that same strength has now become a weakness this term.
