A headed own goal deep into added time by Liverpool FC substitute John Arne Riise rescued a draw for Chelsea FC after Dirk KuytÂ’s first-half opener had looked like giving the home team a significant advantage in their UEFA Champions League semi-final.
Riise, who has not scored for Liverpool all season, stooped low to try to clear Salomon Kalou’s cross from the right, but his awkward header flew past Pepe Reina into the top of the net, giving Chelsea an away goal they had virtually given up on getting. It could have been so different for Liverpool, had visiting goalkeeper Petr
Èech not spectacularly tipped over a late Steven Gerrard drive before denying Fernando Torres seconds before the leveller.
