Eden Hazard On Bench - Chelsea Team vs Liverpool Confirmed

Klopp has slowly transformed Liverpool in potential title contenders

Klopp has slowly transformed Liverpool in potential title contenders

In other games, Arsenal host Brentford at the Emirates and Tottenham Hotspur take on Watford at Wembley.

Elsewhere, West Ham United hammered fourth tier (League Two) Macclesfield Town 8-0 and Danny Welbeck scored twice as Arsenal beat Championship Brentford 3-1.

Chelsea started by far the better of the sides and bossed possession throughout the first half, but they could not take advantage of their early dominance.

Chelsea advanced to the next round of the Carabao Cup, as goals from Emerson and Eden Hazard secured a come-from-behind 2-1 victory over Liverpool. Lovren played for Croatia in the World Cup final in July but injured his pelvis this season.

It is the first of a double-header that the Merseysiders have with the Blues this week, with the second game a Premier League top-of-the-table clash at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.

"The only position I will confirm today is Simon [Mignolet] - Simon will start", said Klopp.

Dare Liverpool fans say that it could have implications for the title race?




This could prove to be the ideal opportunity for Pellegrini to leave a serious lasting impression at the London Stadium, and etch his name into West Ham folklore.

"Dejan looks actually quite good", Klopp told the club's website.

Liverpool is at home and is the slight favorite as a result, but it's hard to discount how well Chelsea has started this season and the results it has managed on the road.

Fabinho will be the Reds' defensive midfielder, partnered with James Milner and Naby Keita, who has seen his minutes reduced in the past few weeks.

"The boys have to prove themselves constantly, it's not only about me, you constantly have to show you are ready for each competition, and each game".

Klopp appears on board with a serious attempt at the competition.

Then Hazard arrived. The forward stepped up with a remarkable jinking run, deceiving several Liverpool defenders before smashing the ball into the corner of Mignolet's net.
