Hazard: Solo stunner against Liverpool one of my greatest goals

"He is a great player and we were all sorry when he left Chelsea", Christensen told the Evening Standard.

But Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, who took charge three years ago next month, will now have to wait until at least May to deliver his first trophy since arriving at Anfield as another chance of silverware slipped by with his side's first defeat of the season.

Liverpool have started with six wins in the Premier League and a victory in the Champions League but they were knocked out by a superb solo goal from Hazard in the 85th minute.

Gianfranco Zola believes there is still more to come from Eden Hazard and feels the Belgian can challenge for the top individual awards in the game.

Klopp knows Chelsea winger Eden Hazard, who scored a brilliant solo victor after coming on as a second-half substitute, represents the biggest threat to his team's flawless start.

"Not only is he one of the best in the Premier League - if not the best - but he is one of the best in Europe and the world".

Julen Lopetegui: Sevilla were superior to Real Madrid
Madrid were no match for Sevilla away from home - the Spanish capital club suffering their first LaLiga defeat of Lopetegui's reign.

The Blues secured an impressive 2-1 win over Liverpool last night in the EFL Cup. On that occasion, Jurgen Klopp rested his key players and discovered that the depth of his squad was a weakness that would stop Liverpool winning trophies.

Both the teams rested a number of star players for the game and Liverpool's new signing, Fabinho, started his first competitive game for the club.

Hazard was Chelsea's hero yet again. Despite his ability, he's nowhere near sharp enough to fill in for Salah or Firmino on a long-term basis.

Like his counterpart Klopp, Sarri made eight changes to his team for this Carabao Cup tie but there were no weak links in the Chelsea line-up. They block players, my players. They'll also meet this weekend in a league contest.

United now face a tricky trip to the capital to face West Ham United at London Stadium - the Hammers' draw with Chelsea following their win at Everton has surely given them the belief they can be the latest to add to Mourinho's woes.
