Klopp says his team could have stopped Hazard wonder goal

The in-form Belgian has already come up with five goals and two assists in the Premier League this season - but Higginbotham insists there is still more to come.

"I know exactly how good he is".

While he described the match as the ideal way to prepare for Saturday's Premier League clash, Klopp warned that Chelsea would be a different proposition with the likes of Hazard, Jorginho and N'Golo Kante all likely to return to the starting line-up.

Sometimes teams haven't been able to get the best out of him, but I think Jurgen will, no doubt.
But today is the only session we have and then we travel, because for the team who played [on Wednesday] yesterday was for recovery.

Eden Hazard must work harder in training if he wants to be the world's best player, according to head coach Maurizio Sarri who believes Chelsea have only seen "75 or 80 percent" of the forward's potential so far.

Daniel Sturridge's goal against his former club looked to have sent the hosts into the fourth round, but Emerson and Eden Hazard had other ideas.

Klopp said: "Trent trained (on Thursday) completely normal".

Asked to provide an update on his squad, Sarri said on Friday afternoon: 'Christensen was not injured, he only had stomach ache during the match [against Liverpool].

Simon Mignolet has said he knows his opportunities this season could be further restricted after Liverpool went out of the Carabao Cup to Chelsea.

"Then we go to Naples which is a tough place to go and then Man City coming".

After Saturday's game, Liverpool travel to Napoli for the second game of their Champions League campaign before welcoming Premier League champions Manchester City to Anfield on October 7.

Klopp will be hoping that upward trajectory continues in what is also a massive week of Liverpool's ambitions both for a first Premier League title in 29 years and in Europe.

While Chelsea struggled in Conte's second season, they also boast much more title winning experience than Liverpool with numerous same squad having won the Premier League in 2014/15 and 2016/17.
