Hazard hits stunner but Liverpool snatch point

By The Assam Tribune

LONDON, May 12 - An injury-time Christian Benteke goal earned Liverpool a point against unlucky Chelsea in a hard-working 1-1 draw at Anfield on Wednesday.

Eden Hazard�s first-half opener was a thrilling finish worthy of winning any contest and it looked like it would be enough until Benteke nodded in Sheyi Ojo�s cross late on as Liverpool�s unbeaten record at home was extended to 13 matches.

The result preserved the 10-point gap between the teams, with Europa League finalists Liverpool eighth and outgoing Premier League champions Chelsea ninth.

It has been a season of change at Anfield, with Jurgen Klopp replacing Brendan Rodgers as manager in October, and more transformations will take place during the close season.

This match was the last time Anfield�s Main Stand will be seen in its current guise as the famous ground is redesigned to increase the stadium�s capacity.

Chelsea will also undergo significant change over the coming months, but mainly on the pitch.

Long-time captain John Terry is set to leave the club, but he cannot enjoy a public farewell as his red card in Chelsea�s last encounter against Sunderland meant he was suspended for the club�s final two games.

It robs the Stamford Bridge faithful of the opportunity to show their thanks for Terry�s commitment over the past decade and beyond, and protests in the away end here showed how much a large section of Chelsea�s fans want the 35-year-old to be given a further one-year contract. � Agencies
