Hazard's magic completes Chelsea comeback to knock Liverpool out

11 wonderkids we’re looking forward to watching in the EFL Cup

11 wonderkids we’re looking forward to watching in the EFL Cup

Both managers made eight changes for the tie, with Liverpool's Fabinho, Alberto Moreno, Simon Mignolet, Nathaniel Clyne and Dejan Lovren all receiving their first starts of the season.

Eden Hazard scored a stunning late victor as Chelsea came from behind to end Liverpool's flawless start to the season and their hopes of winning the Carabao Cup.

Emerson Palmieri nudged home the equaliser before a phenomenal solo goal from Hazard booked Chelsea's passage into the last 16. He then took off down the right channel, weaving through a pair of defenders and firing before a third could close in, scoring an exquisite goal.

So Derby go into the hat for the fourth round of the competition and another big side will fall tonight as Liverpool and Chelsea meet at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking at a news conference before Chelsea FC's trip to Liverpool FC in the League Cup, Zola said: "It looks like the more Eden plays, the better he gets".

Terry was delighted with the goal scored by his former Chelsea team-mate and reacted to the strike on Instagram.

"That's outstanding football, and now (he is) doing it in a very interrupted pre-season, without a lot of players involved - Eden (Hazard), (Olivier) Giroud - and starting the season, and you see immediately the impact".

Arsenal vs Everton : How Lacazette fired Arsenal to victory
In his opening five Premier League games at the Arsenal helm, he has chopped and changed his starting line-up regularly. Cech has been challenged by Emery to use his feet more so the team can play the ball out from the back.

The winger's sixth goal in seven appearances ended Liverpool's flawless start to the season with a 2-1 victory on Wednesday (Thursday NZT) at Anfield.

Liverpool have won only one of their last five Premier League meetings with Chelsea, including the 1-0 defeat in their last game at Stamford Bridge in May. It is also about the nuts and bolts and Chelsea have theirs in place and tightened as they need to be.

They are a brilliant team.

"This is good preparation for Saturday but we have to defend better", said Klopp.

Hazard said: "This result will give us more confidence because we drew with West Ham four days ago".

"We are greedy, we want to win both of them if we can".

I hope Klopp finds a balance between his priorities and giving the two English cup competitions some respect this season because as we have seen in the past, he views these games as little more than practice matches to give young kids a chance.
