Hazard Scores Stunner To Seal Comeback Win

Steven Gerrard Fernando Torres

Eden Hazard comes off the bench to inspire Chelsea to a dramatic 2-1 comeback win over Liverpool at Anfield in the third round of the EFL Cup. With Chelsea competing in the Europa League, we could really do without it.

That said, given their start this season and two consecutive fourth-place finishes, Klopp probably won't finish eighth in the Premier League like Dalglish did, and this is what sealed the legendary Scotsman's fate. Each game is an opportunity and it's all about is it the situation for it, is the player ready - there are different things you have to consider when think about the line-up, especially for a cup game like this.

Sturridge should have put Liverpool ahead immediately after the restart, but, having intercepted a terrible Gary Cahill backpass and rounded Caballero, he shot wide of the open goal. Naby Keita saw him effort well saved and Daniel Sturridge was on hand to acrobatically volley home for 1-0 in the 58th minute.

Liverpool have come a long way since they were dumped out of the Carabao Cup by Leicester City at the same stage last 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.

With Maurizio Sarri opting to rest his conductor for the weekend clash, Fabregas got a chance to shine in what is already being described as "the Jorginho role". Liverpool fans can not have too many complaints about his absence, considering the fact that they've won their first six games of the season.

Chelsea will have their resources tested this season by the Europa League, but the performance of their fringe players at Anfield suggests that Sarri's team can combine an assault on both domestic and European competitions.

Liverpool held fellow unbeaten top-flight side Chelsea at arm's length for the next 20 minutes, before the visitors struck a cruel blow through a right-sided Hazard delivery.

- Sturridge has netted 11 goals in his last 11 League Cup appearances.

Liverpool would have themselves to blame not to have won this encounter as they allowed Chelsea to score two goals that sent them out of the championship.
