Liverpool were unable to break down ten-man Chelsea who fought to secure a 1-1 draw at Anfield on Saturday.
Reece James was sent off at the end of the first half for a dramatic handball on the goal line and the Reds scored the resulting penalty, but could not find a winner.
Liverpool started fast with Harvey Elliot firing narrowly wide from distance inside five minutes.
Next, Jordan Henderson failed to convert an inviting volley on the end of a stunning ball by Trent Alexander-Arnold.
And the Reds were punished for these misses on 22 minutes.
Chelsea earned a corner which James flicked in towards the near post.
In a seemingly pre-planned routine, Kai Havertz sprinted to the ball and lofted a beautiful header over Alisson and into the far corner.
