'Remarkable' Eden Hazard Caps Chelsea Fightback, Tottenham Hotspur Survive Shoot-Out

Sarri points the way

"His maturity has improved a lot and now he is scoring goals, decisive goals which we all wanted from him. He's a genius, I think he's unique".

One of the adjustments for the Reds, who had gone into Wednesday's game with their winning start to the season having reached seven matches in all competitions, was Mignolet coming in for Alisson Becker for his first appearance since January.

Elsewhere, West Ham United hammered fourth tier (League Two) Macclesfield Town 8-0 for their biggest win since 1983.

"But I think I tried to do my job the best I could, and I can't be too disappointed (with) the way I played".

He said: 'Of course [he is more intense in matches than training], every player prefers to play than work without the ball. And then, I don't think I have the Liverpool glasses on my nose - I would say it's offside.

Speaking in an interview with Chelsea FC's website, Barkley said of Hazard: "He is up there with the best in the world".

Chelsea will be in confident mood following their Carabao Cup win when they take on Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening. Eden Hazard is a special player, obviously, and he enjoys these one-on-one situations or one versus two or three situations, he enjoys it. It's very hard to compare him with other players.

The Belgian came off the bench to score a late Carabao Cup third round victor against Liverpool, ending the Premier League leaders' 100% start to the season.

Hazard was introduced as a substitute in the second half and he helped Chelsea come from behind to win 2-1. Sources have told ESPN FC that Chelsea are prepared to make him the highest-paid player in the club's history as part of any extension, but Real Madrid remain long-term admirers. The game on Saturday is more important.

A Chelsea victory would be a major statement of intent and they are sure to need Hazard at his best to kill of Jurgen Klopp's side.

Leading the attack, it will be interesting to see who Sarri choice is but most odds are backing Olivier Giroud to make the lineup to lead the line after being rested in midweek with Alvaro Morata dropping to the bench.

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool are yet to taste defeat over 90 minutes this season in the league. Let us know in the comments section below.
