The quality of the strike also drew appreciative words from his manager Juergen Klopp, who has been at the club since 2015, but never been able to rely on a fully-fit Sturridge for any sustained period of time.

Liverpool had a rejuvenated Daniel Sturridge to thank for securing a late point against Chelsea.

Mark Lawrenson has admitted he does not think Willian is too far behind the level of his Chelsea team-mate Eden Hazard, after seeing both in action in the Blues' 1-1 draw against Liverpool.

Having collected a pass from Xherdan Shaqiri around 25 yards out, the striker unleashed a swerving shot that whistled into the top right corner - just three minutes after coming on as a substitute. "It was so deserved for Daniel, a really nice moment and I'm so happy for him".

"The whole dressing room was pretty much dancing. The boys were really happy for him because he's in a good moment". Maybe he try to be like me.

"But no, he's a great player".

Despite failing to take all three points from the clash, Liverpool are still top of the Premier League table and are yet to lose a game.

Hazard was eased back into domestic competition by Maurizio Sarri, with that approach having delivered a series of stunning performances - the most recent of which saw Hazard net a spectacular late victor in a Carabao Cup clash with Liverpool.

Curiously, it was Eden Hazard who grabbed the opener for the home side - just a few days after scoring the victor for Chelsea during that cup game.

"I came to a new league where things, for a while, appeared to be going on around me and I felt like I couldn't quite get involved".

However, the Brazilian has been made to wait for his first minutes as a Liverpool FC player - and he only made his first start for the Reds last week during the 2-1 League Cup defeat by Chelsea FC at Anfield.

Liverpool were carved open again midway through the first half, with Mateo Kovacic picking out Eden Hazard perfectly, and the in-form forward finished from a tight angle to put Chelsea in front.

"When you are winning 1-0 at home and concede at the end, you can be sad", Hazard said. "The last game he wasn't available, now we will see for tomorrow".
