League Cup: Victor Moses Stars As Chelsea Edge Out Liverpool
For the first time this season, former Nigeria international, Victor Moses was in action for Chelsea for 90 minutes and it was worthwhile as the Blues came from behind to hand Liverpool their first defeat this season; beating them 2-1 at Anfield in their League Cup Third Round tie.
Daniel Sturridge who had earlier missed a sitter shot the Reds in front just before the hour mark, only for the visitors to hit back in style.
Having initially been shut out of the game by the opposition, second-half substitute Hazard sparked into life and played a direct part in both late goals for his side.
The Belgian's free kick led to Emerson Palmieri levelling up against the run of play, and the in-form forward then took matters into his own hands with an individual goal of the highest quality to win the tie five minutes from time.
Prior to Wednesday's Cup tie, Liverpool had won their previous seven games across all competitions, now they will be wary as they head to Stamford Bridge for the star fixture in the Premier League this weekend.
Chelsea remain unbeaten this season following this win, which was earned despite coach Maurizio Sarri making eight changes to his starting line-up.
Arsenal 3-1 Brentford
Liverpool 1-2 Chelsea
Nottingham Forest 3-2 Stoke
West Ham 8-0 Macclesfield
Spurs 2-2 Watford (Spurs win 4-2 on penalties)
