Video: Mohamed Salah equalises for Liverpool after Chelsea defender Reece James is sent off for handball

In the first minute of stoppage time during the first-half of the marquee Premier League matchup between Liverpool and Chelsea, drama erupted, leading to a red card and penalty.

 

 

Liverpool had Chelsea under serious pressure as Joel Matip rattled the crossbar with a header following a corner. Sadio Mane burst into action and poked the ball towards goal.

 

Reece James stopped the ball from crossing the line, first blocking it with his thigh before he was deemed to have handled the ball by Anthony Taylor following a review using the pitchside monitor.

 

The England full-back was shown a straight red card, leaving Mohamed Salah to step up and send Edouard Mendy with a brilliant penalty to equalise for the Reds.
