Chelsea FC will now switch their attentions back towards Europa League affairs and their home clash against Videoton at Stamford Bridge on Thursday night.
Shaqiri sliced a huge chance wide and David Luiz then hacked Firmino's header off the line as Liverpool seemed set to be held scoreless for the first time since they last visited Chelsea in May.
Liverpool now boast a ideal record in the league, whilst Chelsea are only two points behind following their goalless draw with West Ham United. Sign up now for a free seven-day trial.
Sturridge has repaid the brief cameo appearances he's been gifted by Klopp to prove how much he can contribute to the side as they look for their first Premier League title in nearly three decades.
"He's different to the rest, he has incredible potential and undoubtedly he's the best player I've played with up until this point". Although he was forced onto his weaker left foot Hazard still managed to drill the ball low past Alisson Becker for his seventh goal of the season.
It may just be September, and there are about eight months to go in the season, but we may already have the Premier League goal of the season.
There was some talk on social media post-match of being anxious ahead of the visit to Stamford Bridge this weekend but I'm not really sure why.
"He is establishing himself in the top three players in the world now, and at the minute, he's probably the best player in the world". He expected to start every game after what he did with [Luis] Suarez but injuries have robbed him of some of his best years and now he's realise he's in a squad on the edge of winning something.
The 27-year-old has widely been criticised for failing to produce consistent performances for the west London club over the last few seasons but he has started the new campaign in brilliant form.
"I think [Manchester] City and Liverpool are a step ahead of us".
Hazard's stunning late goal capped Chelsea's come from behind 2-1 victory, making them the first team to stop Liverpool winning this season.
"We know much more what will happen on Saturday because we've seen it before, so we will use the two days to prepare", Klopp said.
