Michael Essien tips Chelsea for English Premier League title

"We made it hard for them and they made it hard for us at times".

Unlike the four enthralling encounters between the two last season when Liverpool beat the English champions three times, a highly-anticipated clash fell flat with neither side managing to register a shot on target until after the hour mark.

"I have learned a few things from him but it is just the start". "For Jordan Henderson it was exactly two weeks, which is amusing".

"We already knew what we had to do if we want to compete to win something".

"You can not defend them over 95 minutes at 100 percent".

Barkley has not played for his country since the friendly against Australia prior to Euro 2016, but was handed a recall last week by boss Gareth Southgate for the Nations League matches against Croatia and Spain.

"I think I'm relatively close to being in Liverpool's first-team - in fact very close". I moved down to London on my own and I live just off the King's Road, so I can even walk to Stamford Bridge, which I used to do last season before we stay overnight for the games at the moment.

"For both teams it was really intense, and both showed respect for the other team. I don't know. I [asked] him: 'Big one?' and he said: 'I don't think so, but big enough that I go off'".
