  1. Goodbye

    Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea

    So, Liverpool's late goal sees them keep up their momentum under Klopp ahead of the Europa League final a week tonight. The two goalscorers, Hazard and Benteke, team-mates with Belgium, walk off the pitch together sharing a joke and no doubt a word or two about the Euros.

    Thanks for your company - head on over to the main live for reaction to this and tonight's other matches. Goodbye.

  2. FULL-TIME

    Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea

    And that's it. All in all, a fair result.

  3. GOAL - Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea

    Christian Benteke

    The Reds are level, and you have to say they deserve it. Sheyi Ojo swings over an excellent searching cross, a backpedalling Asmir Begovic makes a complete Horlicks of it and flaps the ball to Christian Benteke, who heads into an empty net from two yards out.

  4. Post update

    Liverpool 0-1 Chelsea

    Great save! Chelsea charge up the other end and Eden Hazard's superb through ball puts Pedro clean through, but Mignolet spreads himself brilliantly. Hazard has been majestic tonight...

  5. Post update

    Liverpool 0-1 Chelsea

    And immediately Ojo has a huge chance! Joe Allen floats a lovely diagonal ball into the ball and the substitute creeps around the back post, but can only fire his volley across the face of goal.

  6. SUBSTITUTION

    Liverpool 0-1 Chelsea

    Final change for Liverpool. Kolo Toure makes way for Sheyi Ojo.

  7. Post update

    Liverpool 0-1 Chelsea

    Asmir Begovic, who has been pretty solid tonight, makes a good claim of a high cross under pressure from Christian Benteke. Not easy that.

  8. Post update

    Liverpool 0-1 Chelsea

    Jurgen Klopp has his head in his hands. One of those nights for Liverpool. So far...

  9. SUBSTITUTION

    Liverpool 0-1 Chelsea

    Double change for Liverpool - Christian Benteke and Joe Allen on for James Milner and Adam Lallana.

  10. Post update

    Liverpool 0-1 Chelsea

    Emre Can fires a low sidefoot shot from distance, but Asmir Begovic is comfortably behind it.

  11. SUBSTITUTION

    Liverpool 0-1 Chelsea

    Bertrand Traore is off, and another youngster, striker Tammy Abraham, takes his place.

  12. Post update

    Liverpool 0-1 Chelsea

    Liverpool creating all the chances now. A deep cross finds Firmino at the back post and his side-foot volley is goal-bound but Mikel blocks it on the line.

  13. Post update

    Liverpool 0-1 Chelsea

    Ooh, another decent opportunity for the Reds, who are turning the screw at the moment. Begovic punches away a corner but doesn't get enough distance on it and it drops to Adam Lallana, but he fires wide on the volley.

  14. Post update

    Liverpool 0-1 Chelsea

    Two huge chances for Liverpool in the space of two minutes! First Daniel Sturridge is sprung through on goal by Adam Lallana's pass but Begovic stands tall and makes the save. Then from the corner Philippe Coutinho floats an inch-perfect cross onto the head of Kolo Toure five yards out, but the defender completely fluffs it.

  15. Post update

    Liverpool 0-1 Chelsea

    Almost a heart-in-mouth moment for Asmir Begovic as he sees a teasing cross drift over his head, but John Obi Mikel is in there to clear up the danger. He's looked surprisingly untroubled at centre-back so far...

  16. Post update

    Liverpool 0-1 Chelsea

    Eden Hazard is at the heart of everything that's good in this match. Once again he dances through the Liverpool defence and fires in a low shot - Mignolet can only parry it and Bertrand Traore almost snaffles the rebound. 

  17. Post update

    Liverpool 0-1 Chelsea

    That's better from Daniel Sturridge. Some nice skills on the edge of the area, including a clever drag-back, lure Cesar Azpilicueta into a foul. But James Milner, Assist King, overhits the free kick. Poor quality second half so far.

    Daniel Sturridge
  18. Post update

    Liverpool 0-1 Chelsea

    Emre Can makes a great, lung-busting run out of defence, but then gives the ball away with a poor pass. Chelsea on top at the start of the second half.

  19. Post update

    Liverpool 0-1 Chelsea

    Hazard is at it again, bamboozling Liverpool defenders. He draws an outstretched leg from Kolo Toure and tumbles over it to win a free-kick. The set piece comes to nothing.

  20. KICK-OFF

    Liverpool 0-1 Chelsea

    Ready for more? Second half under way.
