- Willian was the man of the moment as Chelsea took a point away from Anfield
- Coming off the bench the Brazilian struck late on to level the scoreline
- Liverpool had taken the lead through former Chelsea man Mohamed Salah
- Willian's effort lobbed Simon Mignolet from distance but it looked like a cross
Brazilian winger Willian was the man of the hour at Anfield on Saturday, after coming off the bench to score a sublime goal and earn a share of the points.
Liverpool had taken the lead through former Chelsea man Mohamed Salah and looked to be heading on their way to a crucial victory, but for a late piece of magic from Antonio Conte's samba star.
Ever since the goal debate has been rife regarding whether Willian meant it, or if it was simply just a fortunate cross turned goal. Sportsmail's authoritative voices Martin Keown and Chris Sutton give their views alongside fellow pundits Gary Lineker and Jermaine Jenas.
Willian's sensational effort earned a draw at Anfield, but talk about it has been rife ever since
Willian's response: It was a shot, for sure. It was beautiful.
SUTTON: I don’t think he meant it but would you say you did? Of course you would. Lying is good sometimes. Maybe if he does it again, then I’ll believe him. If I had scored that, I would be milking it. I would be telling everyone I met how good the goal was.
KEOWN: Why don’t we trust what the player says? If he says he meant it, then I will accept that. If it was Eden Hazard or Kevin de Bruyne or Mohamed Salah, we would be more inclined to accept it.
I don’t think Willian is that far off himself. Maybe it is a show of disrespect that we don’t believe him.
LINEKER: If he meant that, it was one of the great goals of all time. I’m not so sure.
JENAS: He is the type of player who has that in his locker but it’s a cross. It’s a fortunate goal.
Despite insisting he meant to score the goal, Willian looked shocked as it hit the back of the net
