Chelsea takes command

Pedro kicked the ball from a sharp angle at the bar, Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian was still at his fingertips (22). The injured Brazilian substitute Alisson also saved Mateo Kovacic (32) the urgent need. Four minutes later, the 32-year-old was defeated. A solid game on N & # 39; Golo Edge and Christian Pulisic round out Frenchman Giroud for deserved leadership. The supposed 2-0 (40) of Pulisic was not rightly recognized as offside.
