Chelsea drew with Liverpool 1-1 at Anfield last night in what I personally thought was a disappointing second half performance with two points dropped as a result. 

I feel so frustrated this morning thinking of the game last night because for the third time this season against one of our top four rivals, we didn't do anywhere near enough going forward. As a result the likes of Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata drifted out of the game as we sat too deep in a defensive mindset.

As we all witnessed last night, there is a level of uncertainty about Liverpool at the back and in goal. Why on earth didn't we come out in the second half after dealing with their attacking threat so well in the first half with a mentality of "Now we are going to play our game"?

Liverpool were there for the taking, they had shown at times in the first half a level of panic when the ball came anywhere near their box. In that first half we demonstrated our pace on the counter-attack, Eden Hazard had collected the ball numerous times and ran at the Liverpool midfield towards their defence causing problems so why on earth didn't we take advantage of that in the second half?


Unfortunately in this one the manager made his tactical substitutions too late in my view. I was calling for Chelsea to go and attack Liverpool through my Twitter Account stating that Cesc Fabregas needed to come on for Tiemoue Bakayoko who had possibly his worst game in a Chelsea shirt so far.

As soon as Cesc came on he changed the momentum of the game. Now Chelsea were on the offensive and Liverpool reverted into a defensive shape. The time and space he was given to play his passes was unreal. Knowing he was on, Alvaro Morata came to life knowing that he would be involved in the game again, Eden Hazard suddenly picked up possession of the ball again and we found ourselves back in business.

Many Chelsea fans through Social Media have stated that this was a good point to bring home but I disagree totally. This was a poor second half performance for half an hour that nearly cost us all three.

Two points dropped in my eyes!
