Five reasons Liverpool will tear apart Chelsea on Saturday

The forward started on Wednesday night as the Reds lost their first game of the campaign to Chelsea in the League Cup, thanks in part to a wonder goal from Eden Hazard.

Chelsea levelled the contest through Emerson Palmieri's close range finish which needed intervention from the video assistant referee (VAR) to check for offside before being awarded.

Having inflicted their first defeat of the season, Chelsea will now look to halt table-topping Liverpool's winning start in the league on Saturday when the two clubs meet again at Stamford Bridge.

When asked if he thought it was realistic that he could challenge to be Liverpool's number one in the future, Mignolet said: "I don't really think about that in those terms".

When it was put to Zola afterwards that Sky Sports pundit and former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher had said Hazard was the Premier League's best player, the Italian said he felt the assessment was correct. "I don't think it was that hard from the club [to keep him this summer]".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has vowed to "strike back" as his team face Chelsea in a Premier League game this weekend.

Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley believes Belgian teammate Eden Hazard is now ahead of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in the running for the world's best player due to his act of unselfishness.

"We all know we could have stopped that goal (on Wednesday), but he used the situation".

It maintained the Blues unbeaten season so far and took them into the fourth round of the cup as Maurizio Sarri quietly goes about making the West London side serious challengers on all fronts.

"He is one of the best coaches in the world at the moment", Sarri said of Klopp.

According to Neil Jones, Klopp says the exchange between himself and his wide man was simply because he wanted him to play in Mo Salah with a free-kick Liverpool had in the last second of the game. Maybe the Premier League, maybe the Champions League.
