The Croatian perfectly volleyed home from outside the box after Liverpool keeper Caoimhin Kelleher punched clear from a Marcos Alonso free-kick.

It is only Kovacic’s fourth Chelsea goal since signing in 2018 but will take some beating to ever top.

It was the much-needed break the Blues needed having gone one down after nine minutes following Sadio Mane’s opener.

A mistake from Trevoh Chalobah allowed the forward in on goal and he rounded Mendy before firing in to make it 1-0.

Mo Salah then doubled Liverpool’s lead on 26 minutes after finding space down the right, cutting in and finishing past Mendy.

But within the space of less than five minutes, Chelsea miraculously levelled the scoring.
