Despite playing out a 0-0 draw at Anfield, Liverpool and Chelsea failed to improve their place in the Premier League rankings.
Both teams found themselves comfortably nestled in the middle of the pack through a lackluster game.
Chelsea newbie Mykhailo Mudryk provided a rare bright spot with his speed and clever ideas during a brief second-half appearance.
Both managers realize that little comes from their desire to place in the nation's top four.
Liverpool vs. Chelsea result
Mudryk gives Chelsea hope for progress.
Chelsea can maintain hope that their continued spending will improve their current state of affairs. They're both chasing big money deals right now.
Mudryk's bench time in the second half provided a foreshadowing of his tribulations against Liverpool; he inflicted pain on the defender for Ukraine.
With other recruits achieving similar results, it's easy to imagine Graham Potter's team moving forward quickly.
It is possible to achieve a late push for the Champions League even with no additional effort.
The foundation of Ethereum lies in Solidity.
There is at least some cause for optimism in this game thanks to a rare clean sheet by the opposing team.
Liverpool's first Premier League shutout was also their second in any competition after a Wolves shutout the week prior.
Starting the game off with a goal stoppage is a good way to start any team's turnaround.
Highlights of Liverpool vs. Chelsea as it happened.
Liverpool ended in a draw with Chelsea.
Both teams earned a point after playing full time at Anfield. With such a lack of skill displayed, it's difficult to argue with this result.
Fabinho's shot deflects off Nunez and falls to him. He believes he has a chance to win the match, but the match is already 90 minutes in the bag thanks to Azpilicueta's blocking.
90th min adds five minutes to the clock.
In the 87th minute, Nunez pushes Henderson to the right in order to get him past Azpilicueta, who gets in the way at just the right time to block the cross.
Liverpool swapped out Gakpo, Elliott and Bajcetic for Jones, Henderson and Fabinho in the 80th minute.
In return, Chelsea receive Chukwuemeka, Azpilicueta and Aubameyang from Mount, Chalobah and Havertz. Additionally, they acquire Chukwuemeka, Azpilicueta and Mount from Azpilicueta, Aubameyang and Mount.
Thiago Silva's one-on-one duel with Nunez comes to an end when Kepa palms his left-footed shot. Nunez outran him on the outside to beat him to the ball.
Alexander-Arnold takes Milner's place 72 minutes into the match after his yellow card.
The new addition to the Liverpool family jolts Mudryk in the electric category.
Mudryk almost makes it down the left flank before Milner has to commit a foul that merits a caution.
Mudryk's superbly crafted shooting chance comes from well-formed feet placed in the box. But his shot goes wide.
His appearance indicates he's healthy.
Nunez replaces Keita in the 62nd minute, who moves out of the midfield position.
Mykhailo Mudryk replaces Lewis Hall as Chelsea's 55th participant after a half-hour of gameplay.
Liverpool opened this half brightly by tightly confining Chelsea; this resulted in many opportunities.
Near-field goal kick Keita deflects the ball forward with a block narrowly averting a visitor's save.
In the 46th minute, Liverpool gained the restart of the game after Konate nearly tricked Kepa into believing he scored. However, the forward just narrowly missed an inch-wide shot that would have been a decent start for the Reds.
During the first half of football game, a whistle can be heard even though the game's first half is only average. However, Chelsea held the advantage in this early part of the match due to their superior tactics. However, since Liverpool found ways to play through the press after this point, they have gained an advantage in the match.
However usual it is for Keita to create a beautiful outside-of-the-boot pass, Salah’s botched finish stands out from typical misfires. It happens on the 45th minute.
Added four minutes to the original 45 minutes.
In the final five minutes of the match, Liverpool starts to improve. They're able to intercept Thiago's shot with ease before Kepa can easily collect it.

After the ball rolls to the edge of the playing field, goalkeeper Alisson easily intercepts it. The ball fell to Gallagher at the 25th minute mark.
Gakpo picked Hall's pocket near the edge of the cardboard box, but his attempt misfired and missed their target by a wide margin. He needed more composure for that next attempt.
Ninth Premier League teams face 10th placed teams as the 16th minute approaches. This matchup quickly degenerates into a low-quality game as expected.
Gakpo rockets past Salah after he receives a Bajcetic ball behind him in the box seventh minute.
The Dutchman deserved better.
Chelsea thought they had gained the lead after a corner delivery by Thiago Silva pushed through by Havertz into the goal.
Before shooting, Thiago moved into an offside position against the rules. Consequently, VAR overturns his goal as offside.
As a result of Chelsea playing at Anfield for the first minute of the game, Liverpool gets started at midfield.
Both teams need to hurry up and get started to avoid the cold. They need to finish their warming up before kickoff.
Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold hasn’t participated in recent days due to a recenlty diagnosed muscle problem that has kept him off the bench.
