KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Liverpool FC and Chelsea FC took part in a dress rehearsal for their Premier League clash this weekend as Jurgen Klopp's side looked to maintain their 100 per cent start to the season.

Andy Townsend lavished praise on Eden Hazard for his stunning victor in Chelsea FC's 2-1 win against Liverpool FC at Anfield in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.

Eden Hazard scores contender for goal of the season. But an Emerson strike on 79 minutes hauled Chelsea level before substitute Hazard sealed the win with a sublime strike after beating two defenders and then shooting past goalkeeper Simon Mignolet from a narrow angle.

Morata then sent a header over before Chelsea survived another lapse at the back, with Ross Barkley heading towards his own goal and Mane's effort going wide off Caballero.

"We had the chances to finish it", Klopp added, with Liverpool set to visit Stamford Bridge for a Premier League rematch on Saturday.

Daniel Sturridge has now scored 11 goals in his last 11 appearances in the League Cup, and much like Danny Welbeck, the England global is very much on the periphery of first-team action at his club, having fallen out of favour, but both strikers have asked questions tonight. The linesman is in a really good position.

The incident went to a VAR review for offside before the final decision was made that the goal should stand. Unfortunately, in the end, we have to take it.

During Manuel Pellegrini's three-year tenure at Manchester City, the Chilean tactician managed to clinch two Football League Cup trophies, and it already appears that the 65-year-old is looking to replicate those achievements with West Ham this season, having masterminded an 8-0 win against Macclesfield Town tonight.

Alvaro Morata had the game's first big chance in the 19th minute, but, after collecting a superb lofted pass from compatriot Cesc Fabregas, he was denied by Mignolet's fingertips and failed to convert the rebound from a tight angle.

"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".
