Super sub Hazard dumps Liverpool out of League Cup

  • Chelsea news Gianfranco Zola thinks Gary Cahill is right to be upset

While Liverpool have the upper hand in the league the Carabao Cup match in midweek has given Chelsea the impetus.

He said: 'Of course [he is more intense in matches than training], every player prefers to play than work without the ball.

Although Hazard was voted as the number five best player in the world, the former Lille man does not just want to become the best player in the Premier League, he also wants to be the best player in the world.

"If he's able to improve during training maybe he will be able to use and serve at 100 per cent".

"I think we didn't deserve to go out of the competition", said Liverpool 'keeper Simon Mignolet, who made his first appearance this season.

"He has the opportunity to improve more and can be the best in the world".

As for Liverpool, they can get revenge for the defeat at the weekend, with the two giants meeting again (again!) in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

The Belgian forward, a 56th-minute substitute, won the game with a devastating finish after a powerful run in from the flank, leaving two Liverpool defenders behind before firing into the far corner.


The Reds are the only team with a 100 per-cent record in the league but they were powerless to prevent Hazard inspiring Chelsea to a cup win, his free-kick helping to force the equaliser before a stunning 85th-minute victor.

"I am very happy with the performance of Fabregas and Cahill, they played 90 minutes after a long time, but I don't know at the moment if they are ready to play twice in a week for 90 minutes", Sarri said. "He is a genius, unique". I think [if he does that, he could be voted the best in the world].

The Italian's view is largely shared by many footballing fans for on days like these, the diminutive Hazard is simply unplayable.

"At the minute, he is the best player in the world, I believe". And so I want him to be the best in the world. We have different players, players we didn't have last season, players who like to have the ball.

"I have spoken with him [Cahill] but I think that there is October, November, December".

"And then we have to wait".

Jurgen Klopp, who had hoped to continue his team's winning streak to eight matches, met with disappointment as Liverpool got evicted from the League Cup. That's all I can do, really.
