Eden Hazard now the best player in the world, believes Chelsea teammate

The Premier League's high-flyers meet at Anfield in the EFL Cup this evening as Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool host Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea.

'The result is the most important thing, but performance is also important especially for analysis.

Liverpool will be looking to maintain their winning start to the season this weekend, but they're up against Chelsea, the team they lost against in the Carabao Cup this week. There will be different players but we will learn from the game.

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

Pogba was left fuming in training yesterday after a comment by his manager and a rift is cleary developing between the Portuguese man and the World Cup victor.

"Some ex-football players, or ex-teammates, they spoke to the media and it looks like I am a bad boy or something but I've never been a bad boy or had some problems at a club".

Asked whether their first defeat of the campaign impacted morale in the squad, Klopp said: "It's not cool, it's not what you want".

'We are competitive. That's what we have to show again. I think what you saw in this goal was everything that makes Hazard such a standout player: strength, composure, pace. and he really is an incredible player. We needed time to adapt, yes. If we had one 100% challenge out of the four or five we had, he wouldn't have been able to do what he did. If you give Sadio Mane the ball in the wrong space then you can not get him anymore as an opponent, it's not possible.

The Belgian has been one of the few players who enjoyed a successful World Cup to make an impressive start to the season and he believes the League Cup win will boost the Blues.

Andrew Robertson was sorely missed by Liverpool in midweek so the Scottish worldwide will be recalled at left-back with Moreno making way following a disappointing performance in the League Cup. Obviously we want to strike back, that's sport. So far, we played Tottenham, PSG, Southampton and Chelsea so we are half-way through, and so far we did really well.

"I think we didn't deserve to go out of the competition", said Liverpool 'keeper Simon Mignolet, who made his first appearance this season. Daniel Sturridge actually gave Liverpool the lead just moments later, but Kante went on soon after, before fringe full-back Emerson Palmieri equalised for Chelsea with just over 10 minutes left. We had a new formation, yes, and without the ball, against the ball in defending, it's a little bit more complicated than with the ball.
