Five reasons Liverpool will tear apart Chelsea on Saturday

Chelsea's Belgian midfielder Eden Hazard celebrates scoring his team's second goal during the English League Cup third round football match between Liverpool and Chelsea at Anfield in Liverpool, north west England on September 26, 2018.

Jurgen Klopp is sweating on Virgil van Dijk's fitness as the boss looks to restore Liverpool to full strength for Saturday's Premier League clash at Chelsea.

And after the match, his teammate and England worldwide Ross Barkley has come out to say why exactly Eden Hazard is better than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. And so I want him to be the best in the world.

But Sarri insists Hazard isn't there yet because he can still add another layer to his game by training with even more desire and drive.

While Liverpool have the upper hand in the league the Carabao Cup match in midweek has given Chelsea the impetus. He's one of the best players in the world and he shows it. "He's a genius, I think he's unique". He keeps defenders on the back foot and sometimes you see him attracting two or three players and that creates space for others, like myself, our other wingers and the strikers.

If he can continue this form throughout the campaign, not only will the Blues be right up there come the end of the season but they will also have to fend off some phone calls from a certain Spanish club, who will be eyeing up his signature.

Klopp rotated his team for the League Cup loss, preserving first choice picks for this more important league meeting which marks the first of three huge games over the next eight days.

It's an artform. We've seen Lionel Messi do it over the years and that is why people have started talking about greatness with Hazard.

As a substitute, Giroud has scored 19 goals - the second most in Premier League history. "I believe that. I want to let my feet do the talking for my club and, if that happens, I believe I will be back on the global scene sooner rather than later".

New signing Jorginho has featured regularly in a central defensive midfield role, with N'Golo Kante pushed further forward as a result, while players such as centre back David Luiz have been given a chance to revive their careers.

Jürgen Klopp made quite a few changes and a lot of the players were playing their first game of the season, let alone starting for the first time, so they weren't at their fluent best.
