Chelsea beats Liverpool on Hazard's stunner

Liverpool led thanks to Daniel Sturridge's acrobatic effort, with Jurgen Klopp's men seeking to extend their victorious run at the start of 2018-19 to eight games despite resting Mohamed Salah.

It's Chelsea that moves on to the round of 16, while Liverpool exits the competition early on.

Eden Hazard scores contender for goal of the season. Emerson Palmieri equalized in the 79th with his first goal for the club before Hazard stole the stage.

Eden Hazard scored a goal-of-the-season contender to defeat Liverpool in the Carabao Cup, but Gianfranco Zola thinks he can still improve.

Blues boss Maurizio Sarri has enjoyed a superb start to life in the dugout at Stamford Bridge and Chelsea only dropped their first points of the Premier League campaign at the weekend.

Another opportunity soon fell to Morata, this time after he was set up by Willian, but the Spaniard was denied by Mignolet having elected to shoot from another awkward angle rather than square the ball for Victor Moses and Ross Barkley, who were waiting at the far post. The linesman is in a really good position. They could have won, in the end we won, but fair to say they are a brilliant team.

"We knew how Chelsea wanted to play but we gave them too much space and weren't compact enough".

"We hit the crossbar and had a few interesting balls, but they scored twice and we scored only once". Alvaro Morata got in behind the defence for the first big chance but was foiled by Simon Mignolet as he looked for a cheeky chipped finish.

"There will be a lot of discussions about VAR, it's not flawless - offside, the free-kick for the first goal", Klopp told Sky Sports.

"I cannot see it better than the referee but afterwards I think the first goal is offside, perhaps the VAR can see it not the referee".

During Manuel Pellegrini's three-year tenure at Manchester City, the Chilean tactician managed to clinch two Football League Cup trophies, and it already appears that the 65-year-old is looking to replicate those achievements with West Ham this season, having masterminded an 8-0 win against Macclesfield Town tonight.
