Christensen hobbles off injured for Chelsea in Liverpool clash

Liverpool will face the biggest threat to their 100 per cent record this season when they face Chelsea in the League Cup aka the Carabao Cup 2018-19 on Wednesday.

"Xherdan Shaqiri will probably play and we are looking at such a good squad now that he could literally pick a second team of what we call star names". We scored a similar goal a week or so ago and it's hard to defend, but of course it is better to defend and we know that.

The Reds signed Fabinho, Naby Keita, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alisson Becker in the summer transfer window.

The Swiss worldwide was a constant threat on the right side and the £13.5 million Liverpool paid Stoke to sign him is looking like a great piece of business.

After the conclusion of 90 minutes at Anfield, Jurgen Klopp was spotted on camera lecturing Shaqiri and seemed annoyed.

Daniel Sturridge had put the Reds ahead against his former side just before the hour-mark, but Klopp's men were too wasteful on the night and couldn't hold on to their lead as Emerson stabbed home with 11 minutes remaining to equalise.

Chelsea missed its chance at a flawless start after ending Sunday's matchup against West Ham in a 0-0 draw. Liverpool now top the Premier League table, but are just two points clear of third-placed Chelsea .

Poor Shaqiri. He genuinely looked terrified.

A number of Liverpool fans noticed the moment and were confused as to why Klopp was so angry with the Swiss.

Manager Jurgen Klopp explained in his pre-match news conference that Fabinho still needs to get to grips positionally with Liverpool's set-up, emphasising the importance of closing down space when not in possession.

The Brazilian's only appearance for Liverpool arrived when he came on as an injury-time substitute during last week's win over Paris Saint-Germain, although Klopp has reiterated that the Brazilian has needed time to adjust to his tactical concepts.

Jordan Henderson eventually took the free-kick and he curled it straight out of play.

Derby defeated Manchester United to pull off the first upset of the tournament on Tuesday night. Roy Hodgson's XI was full of players with little or no chance of getting into his first team - and it showed all evening.
