Jurgen Klopp: don’t forget Chelsea in Premier League title race

Current Premier League leaders Liverpool will take on Chelsea in Carabao Cup third round at Anfield and which promises to be a pure treat for the fans around the world.

Chelsea hero Eden Hazard lifted the lid on a conversation he had with N'Golo Kante on the bench in the moments before his stunning victor against Liverpool.

And Maurizio Sarri's assistant Zola, who knows all about being idolised at Chelsea, heaped praise on Hazard.

Hazard was also on the bench, but Chelsea's talisman made a telling impact following his introduction to deliver the free-kick that led to Emerson Palmieri's 79th-minute equaliser before netting a stunning solo strike with five minutes left. Klopp will still be without Adam Lallana and Divock Origi, however.

Fabinho joined Liverpool from French side AS Monaco in the summer in a deal worth in the region of £44m. But Hazard's victor underlines how Chelsea possess one of the biggest talents in the Premier League and a player who decide any game with a moment of brilliance.

"We hope he can immediately show how good he is". Despite his ability, he's nowhere near sharp enough to fill in for Salah or Firmino on a long-term basis.

But the 24-year-old has seemingly done enough to finally earn a first start, with Klopp making eight changes to the team that cruised to a 3-0 league win over Southampton on Saturday.

Former Manchester United defender Danny Higginbotham has predicted on talkSPORT that Wolverhampton Wanderers will be challenging for a spot in the top six of the Premier League in the next three or four years. Cesc Fabregas is in midfield with Ross Barkley and Mateo Kovacic, while Victor Moses, Willian and Alvaro Morata are the attacking threats.

Klopp's side host Chelsea in the third round of the League Cup tomorrow night.

These are players not really regarded as first-choice, yet they were determined to impress Jurgen Klopp.
