The visit of a full-strength Liverpool side to Stamford Bridge on Saturday will be the stiffest test yet of their burgeoning credentials, and Hazard stressed that Chelsea are thinking of no more than maintaining their positive momentum at this early stage of the campaign.

Chelsea will struggle to keep hold of star man Eden Hazard if he enters the final year of his contract, concedes team-mate Cesc Fabregas.

Hazard added that his match-winning effort is one of the best strikes of his career.

"I think Eden is one of the best players in Europe and one of the best players in the world, for sure, and what he's done today, that goal, is proof of that".

Gianfranco Zola felt Eden Hazard's superb late victor in the 2-1 Carabao Cup win at Liverpool served as proof that the Belgian is one of the best players in the world.

Klopp discussed the impassioned confrontation with Shaqiri after the match and explained he was frustrated with a wasted free-kick late into the game as Liverpool sought a comeback - insisting the Swiss worldwide should have looked to find Mohamed Salah with a clever pass rather than a cross into the box.

Of course. They are probably a lot more selfish than Eden is.

"I've seen him day in, day out for the last five/six years and he's a top, top player and he will only get better as well". We know the Premier League is going to be hard. And although Daniel Sturridge scored a scissor-kick to break the deadlock for Liverpool, the former England forward missed an easier chance prior to his goal.

"You're not surprised when you see him do it in a game like that". I didn't want to go to a shoot-out session.

On the other hand, Liverpool can not afford to take the game lightly as Eden Hazard completely toyed with Klopp's defense to score an excellent goal on Wednesday night.

'I play in strong teams, here with Chelsea and with Belgium who were very good at the World Cup, and that helps me to perform better too'.

What will be far more pleasing to Klopp, though, is the statistic that says two goals against and four clean sheets in six games.

When asked if he thought it was realistic that he could challenge to be Liverpool's number one in the future, Mignolet said: "I don't really think about that in those terms".
