'N'Golo Kante was scared' - Eden Hazard's hilarious reason for scoring victor

Chelsea managed to come from behind against Liverpool in the League Cup, courtesy Eden Hazard's sublime goal in the 85 minute. "It needs time, and they were all used to other football teams". That's good, but we have to do better because Chelsea will make changes and Hazard will not only play 20 minutes, so he will give us a few questions over 95 minutes.

Good idea, but he likes players being close sometimes.

Alvaro Morata, who appears to have his confidence back this season under Sarri, also looked sharp, while Willian and Victor Moses gave their manager selection dilemmas for the weekend and ahead.

Klopp suggested his side were always likely to slip up during a 22-day period that includes away games at Tottenham and Chelsea, as well as Champions League matches against Paris Saint-Germain and Napoli.
