Christian Pulisic completed Chelsea’s fightback against Liverpool to claim a 2-2 draw in the Premier League on Sunday.
The American struck in the 45th minute for only a third goal from 11 league appearances this season, three minutes after Mateo Kovacic’s first-time volley from the edge of the penalty area began the recovery.
A pulsating first half started with Liverpool forward Sadio Mane escaping a red card for elbowing César Azpilicueta in the face while trying to get past the Chelsea captain.
Mane then netted the opener in the ninth minute after rounding goalkeeper Edouard Mendy. Mohamed Salah doubled the lead in the 26th by squeezing a shot past Mendy at his near post.
