Liverpool hold Chelsea as Simon Mignolet saves Costa penalty

Diego Costa missed a penalty as Premier League leaders Chelsea had to settle for a 1-1 draw against Jurgen Klopp’s out-of-form Liverpool at Anfield.

Chelsea scored against the run of play on 24 minutes when David Luiz’s free kick caught out Liverpool, with goalkeeper Simon Mignolet not set as the ball whistled in off the post.

Liverpool hit back in the second half when James Milner headed back across goal for Georginio Wijnaldum to nod past goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

Chelsea had the chance to make it 2-1 when Costa went down in the box under Joel Matip’s challenge, but the striker was denied by a low Mignolet save.
