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

Chelsea assistant boss Gianfranco Zola believes goalscorer Eden Hazard is one of the best players in the world.

The Belgian came off the bench at Anfield to score the victor against their Premier League rivals.

Hazard's introduction was the key moment as Liverpool lost at home for the first time since January, Chelsea levelling from the winger's free-kick when Emerson touched in the rebound from Mignolet following Ross Barkley's header, with the goal surviving a long VAR review.

'Yes, of course we could have defended better.

Jurgen Klopp was unhappy with his sides defending as his Liverpool side were dumped out of the Carabao Cup by Chelsea.

Hazard defeated a number of Liverpool defenders before firing an unstoppable shot beyond Simon Mignolet to earn the victory and Zola's praise.

Daniel Sturridge has now scored 11 goals in his last 11 appearances in the League Cup, and much like Danny Welbeck, the England worldwide is very much on the periphery of first-team action at his club, having fallen out of favour, but both strikers have asked questions tonight.

Chelsea came back into the game in the 79th minute as Emerson Palmieri restored parity for the Blues before Eden Hazard came off the bench to score the winning goal for the Blues in the 86th minute.

Liverpool had just a weak Naby Keita attempt to show for their efforts up until that point, but the momentum soon swung their way and they would have felt just as aggrieved as their opponents not to have taken a lead into the break.

Seeing that this is the first match of two between the sides with Saturday's league meeting awaiting them, the Merseysiders were not about to slip up and were in control on every area of the pitch.

"Not at all, Saturday is going to be a completely new game, very exciting game and I hope it is going to be as attractive as today".

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.
