Three Key Battles That Could Swing Chelsea v Liverpool Clash

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp shares a joke with Chelsea counterpart Maurizio Sarri ahead of third round match

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp shares a joke with Chelsea counterpart Maurizio Sarri ahead of third round match

Hazard continued his fine start to the current season with his sixth goal in a Carabao Cup win over Premier League leaders Liverpool at Anfield on Tuesday night.

The Liverpool manager met with reporters to discuss Liverpool's trip to Chelsea on Saturday evening for the first top of the table Premier League clash of the season.

When asked by Sky Sports what went through his mind prior to the goal, Hazard replied: "I spoke with N'Golo on the bench and he told me he didn't want to take a penalty, so the only solution was to score!"

Chelsea will be all too aware though that a home win will put them ahead of their Merseyside rivals and at least level with Manchester City, who I fully expect to be on 19 points by kick off.

But Sarri insists Hazard isn't there yet because he can still add another layer to his game by training with even more desire and drive.

Liverpool saw less of possession in the first half but registered more shots on target than Maurizio Sarri's men.

A Chelsea victory would be a major statement of intent and they are sure to need Hazard at his best to kill of Jurgen Klopp's side. But with both clubs separated by just two points and Liverpool's 6-game winning streak in the Premier League, Sarri would have preferred his best XI.

"I think Jamie is correct in what he says".

Andreas Christensen, who started with Gary Cahill against Liverpool also suffered an injury during the game and had to be withdrawn in the 73 minute.

"[Ross] Barkley - not a lot - but he's offside, they watched it and didn't think it was offside so we have to take that".

The Reds manager, Jurgen Klopp, however, is expected to make many changes in his team following their mid-week defeat to Chelsea in the EFL Cup tie.

The Blues boss will play the best line up he has available to him, after rotating in the cup win at Anfield. "His impact is always obvious, but we could play football before Virgil van Dijk and we can play without Virgil, thank God".

Salah has begun the season in uncertain fashion after his fireworks of last term, but having found the target against the Saints last time out and with goals flowing across the pitch from the ilk of Sadio Mane also, Chelsea may find their opposition a tougher nut to crack second time around. What will we learn from Saturday's game?

"I just can't fathom this guy out".

Both the teams are strong contenders to the Premier League title after making explosive starts to their season, but we take a look at how risky this combined eleven would be.
