Chelsea and Liverpool locked horns at Stamford Bridge, but the game ended in a stalemate, with both teams failing to find the back of the net.
The final scoreline read 0-0, and it was a sobering reflection of the current reduced status of these two illustrious clubs.
The hosts, Chelsea, were led by interim manager Bruno Saltor, who had taken charge of the team following the sacking of Graham Potter.
Meanwhile, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp made six changes to his starting lineup, following their heavy defeat at the hands of Manchester City.
The game got off to an exciting start, with Chelsea having the better of the chances in the opening minutes.
Mateo Kovacic came close to breaking the deadlock, but his shot was cleared off the line by Liverpool defender Ibrahima Konate.
The Croatian midfielder then squandered another golden opportunity, shooting wildly over the bar when clean through on goal.

Chelsea continued to dominate proceedings, with Kai Havertz and Reece James coming close to scoring.
However, both their efforts were ruled out by VAR, much to the frustration of the home fans.
On the other hand, Liverpool barely troubled Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, as they struggled to create clear-cut chances.
Klopp left out star player Mohamed Salah, as well as full-backs Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson, while Virgil van Dijk was sidelined due to illness.
In the end, the game at Stamford Bridge failed to live up to its billing.
It became the fourth goalless draw in a row between both teams.
The fans were left wanting more, as they witnessed a tepid encounter that lacked the passion and intensity of a typical Chelsea-Liverpool clash.
However, both teams will be hoping to bounce back in their next fixtures and show the world why they are still two of the biggest clubs in world football.
