John Terry marked his return from domestic suspension with the opening goal on 20 minutes, only to be carried off on a stretcher after what appeared a serious injury.
Liverpool came out with renewed vigour after the break and drew level when Luis Suarez notched his eighth Premier League goal of the season with fewer than 20 minutes to go.
That was to be the final goal of an entertaining but scrappy encounter, one which saw Chelsea drop to third after Manchester City came from behind to beat Tottenham in the day's first game.

As a result, City are no bigger than 9/4 (general) to retain their title having briefly touched 5/2 following Manchester United's victory over Aston Villa on Saturday.
United remain very strong favourites at a best of 11/10 with Coral, several firms making them odds-on for the first time this season after they yet again came from behind to pick up three points.
With the pressure on City manager Roberto Mancini eased somewhat, he's now out to 20/1 (Sky Bet, Stan James) to be the first Premier League boss to leave his job.
Nigel Adkins is favourite at 6/5 (Sky Bet) having seen his Southampton side play out a draw with Swansea on Saturday, one which left them as 8/15 favourites for the drop ahead of 4/6 chances Reading, who played out a draw with Norwich.
Chris Hughton's side are 8/5, the same price as QPR despite their loss at Stoke. Mark Hughes is seen as the other manager in danger at 5/2 with BetVictor.
Meanwhile, Suarez is clear 11/2 second-favourite (BetVictor) behind Robin van Persie to be the Premier League's top scorer, while Liverpool are 6/4 (bet365) to finish in the top six and 10/1 (BetVictor) to make the top four.
