Liverpool were woefully off the pace in the first half of this game with both Coutinho and Henderson having games that they would rather forget.

Coutinho kept trying to pull of the fancy tricks and flicks when the game was crying out for someone to put their foot on the ball and play measured passes. He was substituted at half time.

Henderson was also guilty of continually giving the ball away, but his work rate and energy saved him from the hook this time.

If Liverpool were nowhere near their best in the first half, Chelsea were poorer and only a free header from a set piece corner meant that they went into the break a goal to the good.

Liverpool’s half time substitution – Sturridge coming on for Coutinho - paid immediate dividends and the replacement was electric, smacking a twenty five yard shot against the post before being teed up beautifully by Suarez to score the equaliser.

Obviously all of the talk after the game will be about “bitegate” but for the moment let’s concentrate on the football and Suarez was in the thick of it again when he was pushed off balance defending in his own penalty area. Inexplicably he stuck his arm up in the air giving away a penalty which Hazard duly converted sending Pepe Reina the wrong way.

For most of the second half Liverpool pressed and were the better team. The lively Sturridge made all the difference and the Reds came close to equalising on several occasions.

And of course at the death – in the seventh minute of six minutes added on time who else but Suarez was on the end of a pin point cross from Johnson to head in the equaliser and do major damage to Chelsea’s hopes of Champions League qualification.

With this point Liverpool remain in seventh place one spot behind Everton and with four games to go that is likely to be their finishing position.

But going unnoticed in all the furore surrounding Luis Suarez is the decline and further decline of Fernando Torres. Was he on the pitch? It was a mystery why he wasn't substituted and he looked like he didn't want to play. Just what has happened to turn this thoroughbred into a shire horse in such short fashion?

If Benitez can not cajole him out of his torpor then there is no hope for him anywhere else.
