Eden Hazard came off the bench to fire Chelsea into the last 16 of the League Cup with a 2-1 victory in a pulsating match at Anfield.
It was Liverpool’s first defeat of the season in all competitions, and it stretches Jurgen Klopp’s wait for a first trophy for the Reds.
Daniel Sturridge looked set to haunt his former employers by opening the scoring for Liverpool shortly after he had missed an open goal early in the second half.
But Maurizio Sarri’s gamble on throwing on Hazard 10 minutes into the second half paid off as Emerson Palmieri levelled from his free-kick 11 minutes from time before the Belgian’s wonderful solo effort won the tie.
Check out the strike below.
Meanwhile, both sides go up against each other again at Stamford Bridge this Saturday in a battle for Premier League supremacy.
You may wanna watch out for Hazard…
