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

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

On the other hand, Liverpool can not afford to take the game lightly as Eden Hazard completely toyed with Klopp's defense to score an excellent goal on Wednesday night.

One thing for certain is that Wednesday's cup tie will bear little resemblance to Saturday's league encounter in terms of the outcome, but it is the star players on each team that hold the game in their hands.

Daniel Sturridge needed just 12 minutes to make amends in the most spectacular way possible.

Chelsea: Caballero; Azpilicueta, Cahill, Christensen (David Luiz 73'), Emerson Palmieri; Barkley, Cesc Fábregas, Kovacic (Kanté 64'); Moses, Morata y Willian (Hazard 56'). 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.

The Belgian had suggested in July that "it might be time to discover something different" after six years at Stamford Bridge, making it clear that Madrid was his "preferred destination".

Hazard told Sky Sports when asked if the goal would make his top five: "I don't know, I need to watch it again, but for sure it's on top of the list also because it's Liverpool". That one was nice. Today against a tough opponent you see we can control a game.




"They were not really a big threat, I would say".

I think it's sad that the modern game has shifted its priorities to the point that cup competitions have become an afterthought because in my playing days, they were the ultimate targets.

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

Liverpool do have a chance to get instant revenge on the Blues as they face each other in the late kick off on Saturday in the Premier League.

'That's why the win is more important.

"I'd still just give Manchester City the edge purely because Pep Guardiola usually wins second season after winning the league and they've got players who've been there and done it".
