Christensen: Chelsea disappointed when Solanke left for Liverpool

N'Golo Kante and Eden Hazard

When you consider that the likes of Jon Flanagan, Ragnar Klavan and Marko Grujic - all now either sold or loaned out - played in the Carabao Cup third round defeat at Leicester last season, it is not easy to see that Liverpool have made progress.

Having nutmegged Roberto Firmino in the build-up and exchanged passes with Cesar Azpilicueta, Hazard cut inside off the right, sped past Liverpool's static defence and fired an unstoppable shot across Simon Mignolet.

Virgil Van Dijk may not be risked for Liverpool's clash with Chelsea in the EFL Cup tonight. "It is on the top of the list, top three". That one was nice.

The pair are nearly certain to partner each other on Saturday, though a back-up plan could involve Cesar Azpilicueta returning to the middle and Davide Zappacosta starting the game at right-back. "In the end, that's the most important thing". "It's been a few months since I've played, so I looked forward to it".

The normally jovial Anfield manager was a frustrated figure in the dugout last night, but fans were left confused by his on-pitch dressing down of the Swiss global, who put in a solid performance for Liverpool.




"I spoke with N'Golo on the bench and he told me he didn't want to take a penalty, so the only solution was to score!" "That's what I did today".

Goals from Emerson Palmieri and Eden Hazard helped Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea to a place in the last 16 of the competition. "What I said was about the free-kick, nothing else". When you see the top players, this is what they do.

Once Daniel Sturridge had given the hosts the lead, it was Liverpool's game to lose, but complacency got the better of them in the latter stages.

"I think this game was more to have the confidence in three days time", Hazard added. And they also know how to win the league. Both Sarri and Jurgen Klopp made eight changes to their team for the Carabao Cup tie, and you can probably expect another eight at Stamford Bridge.

"As for Man City, I watched them against Lyon and you think something might be wrong and then they go and put on a show against Cardiff".
