Share

Five more League Cup games are coming your way on Wednesday and a big one at Anfield headlines the action.

The winger's sixth goal in seven appearances ended Liverpool's flawless start to the season with a 2-1 victory on Wednesday (Thursday NZT) at Anfield.

When Sky Sports asked the Belgian if he was enjoying life under Sarri, he said: "Of course". "When I received the ball I just looked for one, I see on my own so I just tried to do what I can do and I did well so we can go through".

Five minutes from time, the Chelsea No.10 does what he does best and collected the ball deep, beat a couple of players easily and laid it off to a teammate.

"I have scored some goals like that!"

In the end we won but they could have won it as well.

Klopp knows Chelsea winger Eden Hazard, who scored a brilliant solo victor after coming on as a second-half substitute, represents the biggest threat to his team's flawless start.

Hazard came on as a substitute 10 minutes into the second half, replacing the Brazilian Willian.

Liverpool vs Southampton, Premier League
Mohamed Salah's sluggish start to the season is down to a fear of getting injured again after Sergio Ramos' tackle. We are really waiting for him without making pressure on him and we know that it will take a long time .

Naby Keita's shot was pushed out by Willy Caballero and Sturridge threw himself into an audacious scissor kick that flashed into the net for his third goal of the season.

Watching with interest on Saturday will be champions Manchester City who are also unbeaten with five wins and a draw.

"We have to play Premier League always and then one of the other competitions, it depends on us how long we will play in them".

The Gunners, beaten finalists in this competition last season, were pushed all the way by a much-changed Brentford side but showed enough to advance with a 3-1 win as Welbeck scored twice in the first half to ensure safe progression. Three players are offside - two for sure. We have to take it.

The centre-back told the club's official website: "Maybe this is tonight like a warm-up for Saturday and so we know what we need to do better".

Chelsea star Eden Hazard rated his stunning solo effort that dumped Liverpool out of the EFL Cup as one of his greatest goals.

Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge has scored 11 goals in his last 11 League Cup appearances.
