It's a home game, floodlights, I like it - against a very strong side, so it will be really interesting. Only one of the last 4 LFC managers having landed a club prize - Kenny Dalglish during his brief 18 month return to the hot-seat.
"This is a good Liverpool team as well - I don't know if it's quite as good as that team at that time".
"People were always talking about Manchester City being clear, and completely forgot about Chelsea".
"He trains fantastic and he deserves this game".
But it will be a good team, believe me.
"I think he just lost his confidence, Morata, and he probably needs a run in the side".
Zola said the game is an "opportunity to see players who didn't have many games so far" but that they would "take it seriously".
Moyes said: "When you play as well as he did and create goals, you're hoping to boost their confidence".
"Whoever we would have played tomorrow night, after the game we would only then start to prepare for the one on Saturday - and that's exactly how we do it now".
"If I see one player with the feeling "oh, it's only the League Cup" then we could have a real problem".
The reds get their League Cup campaign underway on Wednesday night, in the first of two games in four days against the men from Stamford Bridge.
Klopp has also called on his other fringe players to grasp their chance to impress.
"Three or five weeks sound like a long time in football, but to improve something you can give half a year, to really make the next step". He cited the performance of Joel Matip, who put in a commanding display on his first start since March against Southampton last weekend. The pressure is already there. But the situation of nobody in this team is bad at the moment. We will try again. We were close but we didn't.
Liverpool don't have too many injuries issues and the fact that they have coasted to six league wins without their big money signing Fabinho tells a lot.
Cahill is in the final year of his contract, meaning he can begin negotiations to join other clubs on a free transfer next summer anytime from January 1 and Chelsea are unlikely to receive a significant fee for selling him in the winter window.
