Dejan Lovren issues revenge warning to Chelsea after Carabao Cup exit

Maurizio Sarri named both Hazard and Kante on the bench for Chelsea's Carabao Cup third-round tie against Liverpool on Wednesday night.

"I have scored some goals like that!" 'We wanted to have Mo a bit wider, so we had passed the ball to Mo, the whole bunch of players was in one direction - where we shot the ball, actually.

I am all for giving young kids a chance when the time is right, but Chelsea are likely to field a strong team and this is not the moment for Klopp to take too many risks and threaten the momentum the team has built up so far.

Klopp compared Hazard's goal to the Roberto Firmino's last-gasp effort against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last week. "I'm confident that we will do much, much better". In the end we won but they could have won it as well.

Van Dijk sustained a knock to an earlier rib injury and was substituted in the second half of Liverpool's 3-0 victory over Southampton on Saturday, a result that left the early Premier League pace-setters with six wins from as many games.

"For sure it's on top of the list [of goals] also because it's Liverpool", Hazard told broadcaster Sky Sports.

Sturridge's goal came just 12 minutes after he missed a wide-open goal, much to the chagrin of Liverpool fans everywhere.

Lovren continued: "Obviously we had the game in our control".

But the 29-year-old is set on proving his case for minutes to Klopp as he continues to recover from a fitness setback that had sidelined him since the World Cup final back in July. "I carried it [the injury] for a long time, to be honest, and hopefully it's everything behind me so I can be 100 per-cent again".
