LONDON: Liverpool's hopes of returning to the Champions League effectively ended with a 1-1 draw at Chelsea on Sunday in the London club's first match since securing the Premier League title.

The goals came from headers from both captains, with John Terry putting Chelsea in front after five minutes and Steven Gerrard leveling before half time.

When Gerrard came off in the second half, both sets of fans applauded the 34-year-old midfielder who is joining the Los Angeles Galaxy after the season ends.

Gerrard is exiting with Liverpool failing to build on last season's second-place finish and missing out on a second consecutive season in the Champions League.

Liverpool is six points from the top four with two games remaining and fourth-place Manchester United has a far superior goal difference.
