  • Carabao Cup fourth round draw When is it? What TV channel is it on? Ball numbers

Sarri's opposite number when Chelsea take on Liverpool in the third round of the League Cup at Anfield tomorrow morning (Singapore time), Juergen Klopp, however, was more effusive in his praise of the Italian.

The Blues came from behind at Anfield, where Eden Hazard's brilliant late victor gave them a 2-1 victory and took them through to the fourth round in dramatic style.

When Sky Sports asked the Belgian if he was enjoying life under Sarri, he said: "Of course".

Five minutes from time, the Chelsea No.10 does what he does best and collected the ball deep, beat a couple of players easily and laid it off to a teammate.

Former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore agreed that the Blues won't win the EPL until they sign a proven striker.

"He is getting better and better".

Belgium worldwide Hazard was introduced as a substitute in the second half and although he was quiet for much of it, burst into action by beating Alberto Moreno and smashing a finish into the far corner.

"He was on his own with four defenders, an unbelievable goal". "They have a specific style of play, that's cool and you need to get used to it".


"Naby Keita will probably play, then there's Divock Origi and Dominic Solanke if fit, plus Daniel Sturridge".

Michail Antonio, Robert Snodgrass with a brace, Lucas Perez, Ryan Fredericks, Angelo Ogbonna and Grady Diangana, who also struck twice, were all on the scoresheet.

"You have two players that are clearly offside and they block my players".

"We are greedy, we want to win both of them if we can".

Xherdan Shaqiri's lively showing was arguably the biggest positive on the night, but Klopp's side find themselves out of the League Cup at the third round stage for the second year in a row. They watched it and didn't think it was offside.

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

We are in but the early knockings of Eden Hazard's seventh season in English football, and since 2012 he has slotted, fired, rifled, poked and slid home no fewer than 95 goals in a Chelsea shirt.

Klopp confirmed goalkeeper Simon Mignolet will make his first appearance of the season in Wednesday's cup tie as Alisson Becker rests.
