Chelsea vs Liverpool is officially the most boring game ever in the top flight as shocking stats are revealed
CHELSEA vs Liverpool is officially the MOST BORING top game ever.
The Blues and Reds played another boring drab goalless draw tonight.
Incredibly, this was the FOURTH consecutive time that neither side has found the net since that thrilling 2-2 draw in January 2022.
Both the League Cup and FA Cup finals were stalemates last season – Liverpool twice won on penalties at Wembley.
And January’s Premier League second leg at Anfield didn’t result in a goal before the same result came again in west London.
Opta confirmed this is the third time two top-flight clubs have drawn 0-0 in four consecutive encounters.
It also happened between Everton and Liverpool in 1974-1975 and then with Arsenal and QPR in 1992-94.
However, none of the other games went into overtime.
As a result, the four 0-0 games between Chelsea and Liverpool went 420 minutes instead of 360 without a goal – the longest record in the history of the top flight.
And the quartet of games also included three different Chelsea managers – Thomas Tuchel, Graham Potter and Bruno Saltor.

The one in front, Frank Lampard, was in the crowd to see the final Slumberfest.
Chelsea’s failure to score against Jurgen Klopp’s side in the first half means they have gone eight home Premier League games without a goal – their longest combined streak since November 1992 to March 1993.
Reece James thought he had put the Blues ahead but his goal was ruled out for offside.
And Kai Havertz tried to convince everyone inside Stamford Bridge that he had legally bundled a rebound from Alisson.
But he couldn’t fool the video cameras and the VARs watching the replays at Stockley Park clearly saw the ball bounce off his elbow and was therefore chalked off.
