Liverpool v Chelsea 1-1 (League match: May 1, 1937)

May 1, 1937
Key note: “When Liverpool handed over the initiative to Chelsea in the second half they threw away a point, for up to the interval they had the Londoners throttled down to such an extent that they rarely looked like testing Kemp, let alone beating him. But having done practically what they liked, Liverpool, for some reason or other, lost their sparkle of the first half and became just a moderate side, so that Chelsea were able to get their attack into something like working order and equalise the goal scored by Balmer at 34 minutes.” (Liverpool Echo: May 1, 1937)
