Chelsea are vulnerable to teams who put best quality crosses into the box, according to Steven Gerrard.
Chelsea drew 1-1 with Liverpool at Anfield last night after Georginio Wijnaldum cancelled out David Luiz’s first-half free-kick.
The Reds’ goal came from a deep cross to the back post by Jordan Henderson which was knocked down by James Milner.
“I was pleased with Liverpool, I thought they started really well for 20 minutes but the goal was a big moment – it changed the game,” Gerrard told BT Sport.
“It gave Chelsea confidence and in the second-half Liverpool did well to get back in the game.
“What I will say about this Chelsea team is they’ve got a lot of strength and a lot going for them going forward.
“But they are vulnerable to crosses, we’ve seen that against Tottenham a few weeks ago with the two Dele Alli efforts.
“And we’ve seen it again today – Jordan Henderson has put two or three wonderful balls in and that’s how I think you catch this Chelsea defence out.”
The result means Chelsea have moved nine points clear at the top of the Premier League after Arsenal slipped up to Watford at home, losing 2-1.
The critics will moan about Liverpool’s defeats to the likes of Wolves, but when it comes to the big games there can be no denying Jurgen Klopp gets it right.
He has now played Arsenal, Chelsea, the two Manchester clubs and Spurs 15 times in the Premier League since taking charge at Anfield, with just one loss. That is a record few managers can rival and as his Liverpool team continues to grow it will no doubt stand them in good stead.
Last night was no exception as Klopp rallied his troops to earn a point when defeat looked likely.
