That's all for today, goodbye! 
Both teams' winning start to the season is over, and they stay in second and third, now on seven points. After the international break, Liverpool travel to Leeds United, while Chelsea host Aston Villa. 
10-man Chelsea hold on to earn a 1-1 draw with Liverpool. The hosts took the lead through Havertz, who beat Alisson with an excellent looping header into the far bottom corner from the near post. In stoppage time of the first half, Matip hit the bar before James was sent off for using his hand to clear the ball off the line and Salah netted the resulting spot-kick which was awarded by VAR. Liverpool pushed for a winner in the second half, with Mendy making good saves to deny Van Dijk and Salah, but the hosts couldn't find a way through.
90' + 2' There are two players down for Chelsea, with Rudiger and Christensen both struggling with cramp by the looks of things. Liverpool think they're time-wasting, and the defenders are quickly back to their feet without needing treatment.
90' CHANCE! Chelsea are all over the place as Alexander-Arnold swings the deep corner into the box and Matip rises highest at the far post to get on the end of it. He heads it back across goal, and it takes a slight nick off Silva which helps it over the bar.
89' Liverpool have had 21 attempts in this game, with 12 of those coming in the second half. They're still pushing for a late winner, as Alexander-Arnold curls it in for Mane, but Silva does just enough to stop it from getting through to him.
T. Chalobah
87' And Chelsea are making their final change too, with Chalobah coming on to replace Jorginho.
K. Tsimikas
A. Robertson
86' Final change for Liverpool now and it's Robertson, who has just come back from injury, that's going off for Tsimikas.
85' SALAH! Liverpool go straight down the other end after Kovacic's chance and try to catch Chelsea out on the counter. Salah gets the ball on the edge of the box, pulls it away from Silva and hits the shot, but it's a comfortable one for Mendy.
84' GREAT SAVE! Kovacic touches it to Lukaku and the Belgian feeds him in with a great throughball. He's one-on-one with Alisson down the left of the box and he goes for the near corner. Alisson is wrong-footed but manages to get a strong hand to it to claw it away.
82' Jorginho intercepts Fabinho's pass and switches play out to Alonso on the left. He takes a heavy first touch, just about managing to keep it in play, but that gives Liverpool the chance to flood back into their own half.
80' Mane's cross is blocked by Christensen, but it bounces back out for Alexander-Arnold. He cuts inside from the right and eventually opens up space on the edge of the box for a shot, but it's blocked in the middle by Rudiger.
78' Mendy is urging his team upfield for the goal-kick, but after Alonso's flick-on, Liverpool have it back again. Alexander-Arnold tries to thread it through for Salah, but Jorginho is there to cut it out.
76' Azpilicueta loses out to Robertson, and the left-back switches play out to the right with a great pass to Elliott. He whips a cross into the near post for Salah, but Silva is there to cut it out.
Thiago Alcântara
J. Henderson
74' Second change for Liverpool now, and it's Henderson that's making way for Thiago.
72' Chelsea are just knocking the ball around between their defenders now as they try to get a bit of respite from Liverpool's continued pressure. The hosts are closing them down high upfield though, and they're still on the back foot.
70' There are half-hearted shouts from the fans and Mane for another Liverpool penalty as they think Azpilicueta blocked Mane's cross with his arm. There was nothing in it and the referee waves for play to go on.
68' Alonso just doesn't clear his lines after blocking Alexander-Arnold's cross and is dispossessed by Elliott. He pulls it back for Henderson, but he can't open up the space he needs for a shot.
66' Robertson drives forward down the left before fizzing a brilliant cross into Salah. He gets in front of Alonso, but it bounces off his knee and the chance goes to waste for the hosts.
64' BLOCK! Azpilicueta gets forward and swings a deep cross into the far post from the right and Alonso is there to head it back across the box. Lukaku sets himself and hits the shot on the volley, but Matip throws himself in front of it.
63' Chelsea just can't get out of their own half and they're dropping deeper to try and keep Liverpool out. Alexander-Arnold tries to lift a pass over the top for Salah, but Jorginho gets back quickly to block it.
61' The corner count keeps going up for Liverpool and Elliott goes across to take it. He curls a good cross into the middle, but it's just too high for Jota and Rudiger heads it away behind him.
59' SAVE! Liverpool are ramping up the pressure now as it's pulled back to Fabinho just outside the box. He fizzes a low effort towards goal which Mendy pushes out for a corner. That isn't cleared properly by the visitors and Robertson has a go, but Mendy is there to punch it away again.
58' CLOSE! Salah's cross is too deep, but Robertson collects it and tees up Henderson on the edge of the box. He takes a touch before curling a brilliant effort towards the far top corner, but it's just wide.
56' Salah has scored each of his last 14 Premier League penalties - only Matt Le Tissier (23 in a row between 1994 and 2000) has had a longer consecutive run of scoring from the spot without missing in Premier League history.
54' It's the first time Chelsea have got out of their own half since the restart, but Lukaku's run is cut out by Van Dijk. Mount wins it back and whips a cross in from the right, but Alisson rushes off his line to punch it away from Lukaku.
52' SAVE! Van Dijk is a very long way out from goal, but the space just opens up in front of him as Chelsea spread to cover the wide players. His drilled shot is swerving towards the near bottom corner, but Mendy gets down to push it away.
51' JOTA! Salah whips a lovely cross into the penalty spot with the outside of his boot and Jota rises highest in the middle to meet it. He flicks his header towards goal, but can't keep it down and it sails over the bar.
50' Jorginho is caught on the ball by Jota and he turns before driving towards the box. He unselfishly tries to slip it through to Salah, but he can't bring it under control before Christensen gets across to him.
48' Liverpool are keeping the pressure on Chelsea at the start of the second half as Robertson whips another cross into the box from the left. He's looking for Jota at the far post, but Rudiger gets in front of him to clear his lines.
46' Liverpool get us back underway for the second half! 
M. Kovačić
N. Kanté
46' And the second sees Kovacic come on for Kante after the Frenchman picked up a slight injury before the break.
Thiago Silva
K. Havertz
46' There's a double change for Chelsea at the break. The first is a defensive one as Silva comes on to replace Havertz.
Chelsea were rattled by going down to 10 men and Tuchel will have to use the break to try and calm his players down. They were in control after the goal, but they have a tough task ahead of them now. Liverpool created the better chances and Klopp will feel they have a great opportunity to go on and win it.
After some late drama at Anfield, it's 1-1 between Liverpool and 10-man Chelsea at the break. Havertz put Chelsea ahead with an excellent header as he glanced a free-kick on at the near post and it looped over Alisson into the bottom corner. Deep into stoppage time, there was a scramble in the box where Matip hit the bar before James blocked Mane's effort. He was sent off for using his arm in the block and Salah netted the spot-kick.
E. Mendy
Yellow Card
45' + 5' Tempers are still flaring for Chelsea here as the visitors still aren't happy with that red card decision. After some pushing and shoving between both sets of players, Mendy is booked for dissent.
Mohamed Salah
Penalty Goal
45' + 5' SALAH SCORES! He had a long time to wait to take the penalty, but he slots it into the bottom corner. Mendy dives the wrong way and Salah drills his effort into the back of the net to make it 1-1! 
A. Rüdiger
Yellow Card
45' + 3' The Chelsea players swarm the referee to protest the red card decision and Anthony Taylor clearly isn't happy with something Rudiger said as he's booked for dissent.
R. James
Red Card
45' + 3' CHELSEA DOWN TO 10! After pointing to the spot, the referee goes straight to his pocket and he's shown a straight red card to James for the handball on the line. It seems harsh as it bounced off his leg first, but he's told to leave the pitch.
45' + 2' PENALTY TO LIVERPOOL! VAR is having a look at the goal line scramble to see if there was a handball by James as he made the block against Mane. It bounces off his leg and onto his arm and after the briefest of glances at the monitor, Anthony Taylor points to the spot.
45' + 1' OFF THE LINE! How that has stayed out is anybody's guess! Matip hooked the ball back into the middle from the byline before heading his own pass off the bar. Mane followed in the rebound and James made the block on the line before turning away Jota's attempt as well. 
45' In all competitions, only Mount (six) has scored more goals for Chelsea under Tuchel than Havertz (five).
Diogo Jota
Roberto Firmino
43' Liverpool are making a change just before the end of the first half. Firmino has picked up an injury so he's going off, with Jota on in his place.
41' Kante tried to win the ball off Mane and when they both fell to ground, it looks like he twisted his knee. The medical team have seen to him and he's limping as he makes his way off the field after his treatment, but he will be coming back on.
39' Jorginho catches Alexander-Arnold with a late challenge, and the right-back steps up to take the free-kick. He curls another cross towards the far post, but Mendy is first to it and he holds onto it.
37' Mane's pullback from the byline takes a deflection off Christensen which ends up helping it to Elliott, who is in space in the middle of the box. He hits the shot on the volley but leans back as he takes it and sends it flying into the stands.
36' GREAT CHANCE! Lukaku spins away from Matip before teeing up Mount on the left of the box. Alisson rushes out, but the shot is past him and it takes a slight nick off Robertson which helps it wide of the far 
34' James has two defenders ahead of him, so he squares the ball to Kante on the edge of the box. He tries to chip his shot towards goal, but there's no power on the effort and it's a comfortable one for Alisson.
32' Mane makes a late run to try and get on the end of Alexander-Arnold's corner at the near post, but it's blocked by Havertz. Elliott recycles it but whipping a deeper cross in, but Rudiger is there to clear that one.
30' Jorginho went down after Liverpool's latest attack went out of play and the medical team are on to give him some treatment for what looks like a muscle injury. He's moving gingerly as he makes his way off the pitch, but it looks like he's going to try and carry on for now.
28' Elliott pulls away from Alonso with another clever bit of footwork before pulling it back for Henderson. He spots Mane's run to the far post and tries to curl it into him, but he overhits the cross straight out of play.
26' James' pass is intercepted and Mane turns before drilling it forward for Salah to chase. He's goalside of Azpilicueta and it looks like he's through on goal, but Mendy rushes out of his box to make the clearance just in time.
25' Jorginho intercepts Matip's pass and sets Lukaku on the counter. He's on his own against four defenders and eventually overruns it until Mount gets up in support. He chips it over the defender for Lukaku, but Alisson is quickly off his line to collect it.
24' It's another great ball in from the right, this time for Salah as he whips it into the six-yard box. It misses everyone in the middle and almost falls for Mane just in front of Mendy, but Alonso is tight to him and sticks up his leg to take it away from the forward.
R. James
22' It's a great free-kick from James into the near post as he picks out Havertz to open the scoring.
K. Havertz
22' HAVERTZ SCORES! James swings a free-kick into the near post from the right and Havertz makes a late run to the near post. None of the Liverpool defenders pick him up and he glances his header on, sending it looping over Alisson and into the far bottom corner. 1-0 Chelsea! 
20' Rudiger goes long when he spots Havertz making a run between the two Liverpool defenders, and Alisson comes a long way out of his box to head it away. It looked like Havertz had set off early anyway and the flag would've gone up against him.
18' Only Manchester United (12) have won more Premier League away games against Liverpool than Chelsea (seven), with the Blues winning this exact fixture 1-0 last season.
16' Robertson has acres of space to run into down the left and he curls a dangerous cross into the box. It's too far in front of Firmino, but Salah is following in at the back. Alonso does just enough, in the end, to keep it from him and prevent the corner.
14' Lukaku is through the middle and even though the space opens up ahead of him for a shot, he tries to set up a team-mate. Mount is to his left and he tries to poke it forward for him, but there's too much on it, and Alisson collects.
12' Nervy moments at the back for Chelsea as Rudiger's heavy touch almost plays in Firmino on the edge of the box. He recovers well before setting his side on the counter and Mount sees a cross blocked by Fabinho.
10' CHANCE! Alexander-Arnold puts a great cross into the box from deep on the right and Henderson is running onto it at the far post. He tries to volley it across goal but gets his angles all wrong and it ends up bouncing well wide. 
8' Mount wins a free-kick on the right and steps up to take it as he curls a good cross into the box. Rudiger gets away from Van Dijk, but Mane is back to intercept it just ahead of him and put it out for a corner.
6' Matip chips a lovely ball over the top to try and pick out Mane's run off the back of Azpilicueta, but James gets across to intercept it. He sets Havertz off on the counter, and he wins a free-kick after being tripped by Fabinho, but nothing comes of it.
4' CLOSE! It's another sloppy pass from Chelsea, as Havertz gives the ball away this time to Salah. He picks out Elliott on the edge of the box and he lets it bounce before drilling a shot at the near bottom corner, but it's just wide of the post.
2' Salah gets away from Alonso with a clever flick on the right before touching it into Elliott. He takes it to the byline before whipping a dangerous cross into the middle, but Fabinho's header is blocked by Matip.
1' Lukaku gets the game underway for Chelsea! 
The teams are out on the pitch now, with kick-off just moments away! 
The home side didn't lose any of the first 22 Premier League meetings between Liverpool and Chelsea, winning 17 and drawing five. Since then, the home team has won just a further 12 of 36 such games, with the away side winning 15 times in that period.
Thomas Tuchel makes just one change to his team after their win over Arsenal last time out. Kante comes into the midfield in place of Kovacic, who starts on the bench.
Jurgen Klopp makes three changes to the side that beat Burnley last week. Robertson returns from an ankle injury that kept him out of the start of the season, with Fabinho and Firmino also coming in. Tsimikas, Keita and Jota drop to the bench.
CHELSEA SUBS: Thiago Silva, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Timo Werner, Mateo Kovacic, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Trevoh Chalobah, Ben Chilwell, Hakim Ziyech.
CHELSEA STARTING XI (3-4-2-1): Edouard Mendy; Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen, Antonio Rudiger; Reece James, Jorginho, N'Golo Kante, Marcos Alonso; Mason Mount, Kai Havertz; Romelu Lukaku.
LIVERPOOL SUBS: Ibrahima Konate, Thiago Alcantara, Caoimhin Kelleher, Naby Keita, Konstantinos Tsimikas, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Takumi Minamino, Diogo Jota, Joe Gomez.
LIVERPOOL STARTING XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson; Harvey Elliott, Jordan Henderson, Fabinho; Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane.
Both sides have made identical starts to the season so far by winning both games, scoring five goals and keeping two clean sheets, but one or both of those 100 per cent starts will come to an end today. Liverpool have seen off Norwich City and Burnley so far, while Chelsea beat Crystal Palace and Arsenal and sit above today's opponents only due to alphabetical order.
