Chelsea's Ross Barkley has said that Eden Hazard "is better than" Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi in his current vein of form.

Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard has jokingly revealed the real motivation behind his stunning solo match victor in the Carabao Cup third round against Liverpool this week, suggesting he scored it so that a nervous N'Golo Kante wouldn't have to take a penalty in a potential shootout.

"What I said was about the free-kick, nothing else". It is a pleasure to be there.

Sarri and Jurgen Klopp both made significant changes to their teams with one eye on Chelsea's clash with Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday, and Zola warned that this result will have no bearing on how things will play out when both club's starters meet at Stamford Bridge. I just want to keep going. He is adding goals and he keeps improving ...

"It won't be simple". The Blues have taken 16 points from their first six Premier League matches to surge up to third, and some are beginning to talk about them as surprise title contenders. The last domestic cup game he played was the FA Cup final.

"You've got players who've been in the team a couple of years and you've got young players coming through with experience of Jordan Henderson and James Milner so it's a good blend in there".

Hazard came off the bench to score a sensational victor to book Chelsea FC's place in the fourth round of the cup competition. And then, I don't think I have the Liverpool glasses on my nose - I would say it's offside. "That is why I like football". At the moment, we are winning games so it is more easy to smile but when I am on the pitch I just try to be happy. At the moment it is good. - Sturridge has netted 11 goals in his last 11 League Cup appearances.

Alli sealed a 4-2 penalty shootout after a lively finish saw the game end 2-2 after 90 minutes, with extra time not being played in the competition.

"He's going fast in maturity, in choices on the pitch, and in my opinion we haven't seen the best yet".

Liverpool, though, will quickly have a chance for revenge as they head to Chelsea protecting a ideal Premier League record for a blockbuster Stamford Bridge clash on Saturday.
