Chelsea beats Liverpool on Hazard's stunner

The Chelsea forward struck a stunning individual goal to inflict a first defeat of the season on Liverpool in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, beating four players before scoring in the 85th minute at Anfield.

And Zola said: "I think Eden is one of the best players in Europe and one of the best players in the world, for sure, and what he's done, that goal, is proof of that".

Emerson Palmieri levelled after Daniel Sturridge gave Liverpool the lead in the 58th minute before Hazard's mesmerising victor in the 85th minute.

Chelsea: Caballero; Azpilicueta, Cahill, Christensen (David Luiz 73'), Emerson Palmieri; Barkley, Cesc Fábregas, Kovacic (Kanté 64'); Moses, Morata y Willian (Hazard 56').




Virgil Van Dijk may not be risked for Liverpool's clash with Chelsea in the EFL Cup tonight.

Liverpool signed Alisson from Roma for £65 million in the summer, and asked whether it was realistic that he could challenge him for the No. 1 spot, Mignolet said: "I don't really think about that in those terms". That one was nice. Liverpool's captain only played 30 minutes but was terrorised by Hazard.

"Remember just two years ago they were the champions and they've got players in that dressing room who know what it takes - Liverpool haven't got that, but you've got to start somewhere and Liverpool have been impressive". Not many teams in the world can buy Eden Hazard.

"It's always sad to see a young player leave us". Again, it's a game against Chelsea [next], so we'll learn the lessons from tonight's game and hopefully we can beat them on Saturday. That contributed to a slow start at Chelsea and cost Barkley his England place ahead of the World Cup but the 24-year-old is confident that, with more game time under Sarri, his worldwide prospects will improve along with his form. Both Sarri and Jurgen Klopp made eight changes to their team for the Carabao Cup tie, and you can probably expect another eight at Stamford Bridge. "In the end, that's the most important thing".
