Sarri: We are closer to Liverpool than I thought

Sarri: We are closer to Liverpool than I thought

The Liverpool defender trained yesterday and was included in Jürgen Klopp's squad for the showdown at Stamford Bridge.

Substitute Daniel Sturridge scored a stunning equaliser a minute from time as Liverpool snatched a dramatic draw at Chelsea in the Premier League.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has explained that Belgium global Eden Hazard is the best player in the Premier League after scoring against his former club in the Carabao Cup.

Stay with us for all the updates.

1-0 up fro the majority of the last Premier League match of the day thanks to Eden Hazard (who else?), who just can't seem to miss this season, in the 25th minute, Liverpool left Chelsea rueing their chances to finish the game off.

The former Chelsea man scored an outrageous goal from outside the box in the final moments of the game.

"I think we can fight for the Champions League".

On Wednesday, the Blues came from behind to secure a 2-1 win over the Reds in the Carabao Cup at Anfield, with Emerson and Eden Hazard getting the goals.

"I was just telling him I'm watching his videos - that's how I'm learning", Sturridge said.

That included after the Chelsea result where - despite not penning a tweet of his own - he made his feelings very clear with his Twitter activity.

Hazard continues to shine for Chelsea.

All eyes will be on Salah in particular as the Egyptian will likely play from the right, bringing him face to face with Marcos Alonso and David Luiz - a pairing who, while good going forwards, can leave a lot to be desired when defending, especially in one-on-one situations.

It means that the 29-year-old has four goals for the season, joint top for the Reds with Sadio Mane.

Chelsea emerged victorious when the two sides last met in the league in May, and boast a slight edge over Liverpool in this fixture's history.

"They commit people and they can slide balls in behind you", he added. His once-clinical form in front of goal evaded him once again against Chelsea as he spurned a number of opportunities with poor finishing and poorer decision-making.

"We know much more what will happen on Saturday because we've seen it before, so we will use the two days to prepare", Klopp said. "The boys worked tirelessly all game, we created chances in the first half and we were unlucky not to score".
