Klopp bemoans Liverpool defending after Carabao Cup exit to Chelsea

Jurgen Klopp

The first half finished goalless, but the second period kicked off in exhilarating fashion with the hosts still on the ascendancy.

And the teams have a swift reunion, with Chelsea hosting unbeaten early front-runner Liverpool at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Saturday.

But Eden Hazard came off the bench to inspire a dramatic late turnaround as Chelsea struck twice in the last 11 minutes at Anfield.

Emerson brought the sides level with ten minutes remaining of normal time before Hazard stole the headlines with an outrageous solo effort, jinking past several Liverpool defenders before beating Mignolet with a thunderous strike.

The Liverpool striker scored a stunning goal Wednesday in his team's Carabao Cup (English Football League Cup) third-round game against Chelsea.

Seeing that this is the first match of two between the sides with Saturday's league meeting awaiting them, the Merseysiders were not about to slip up and were in control on every area of the pitch.

"I think that, without being disrespectful to him, a lot of the Chelsea supporters wouldn't have known who Sarri was until he came here", Harris continued.

"We knew how Chelsea wanted to play but we gave them too much space and weren't compact enough".

The incident went to a VAR review for offside before the final decision was made that the goal should stand.

'We scored a similar goal a few days ago and it's hard to defend at the end but it's, of course, better to defend.

The Belgium winger went past two Liverpool players around the halfway line before sending the ball through Robert Firmino's legs to Cesar Azpilicueta on the right flank.

Ahead of tonight's 3rd round tie between the pair at Anfield, we want you to cast your mind back.

"Eden's growing fast, he's growing fast in maturity, in choices he's making on the pitch and I think, in my opinion, we haven't seen the best yet".

Morata was also unable to squeeze in the rebound from a tight position, and he was thwarted by Mignolet - in for his first Liverpool appearance since January - from the game's next big opportunity.
