The much-maligned Samuel Eto'o ultimately proved the hero when he scored the winner 10 minutes before the interval.  But Liverpool 'keeper Simon Mignolet will know he should have done better with the Cameroon international's shot.

The visitors had chances to level, most notably when Luis Suarez twice had penalty claims turned down and Mamadou Sakho hit the crossbar.

The results sees Chelsea finish the year two points behind leaders Arsenal, while Liverpool slip down to fifth.
