Maurizio Sarri’s men emerged victoriously with a 2:1 win against Liverpool at Anfield in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.
The Blues displayed resilience and character as they fought back from a goal down to win 2:1 and proceed to the next round of the competition.
Daniel Sturridge scored the opener for the Reds with a well executed scissor kick and it looked like it was done and dusted after that.
However, the Blues had other ideas as Emerson Palmieri tucked in the equalizer from a rebound, although VAR had to be consulted.
The best was yet to come, and who else but Hazard to bring up the best?
The Belgian started a move from the center of the park after going past few players before receiving the ball on the right wing.
He then proceeded with a burst of pace and slick dribbles in a solo run going past two players before unleashing a piledriver that gave Mignolet no chance.
The beauty of a goal subsequently turned out to be the winner who handed Liverpool their first loss of the season.
Therefore, the game on Saturday in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge has been set up nicely for fireworks.
This is because Liverpool won’t want to see their 100% run thwarted, and won’t want to not lose twice to the Blues in a row.
Chelsea will also be keen to close the gap on the leaders and make the home advantage count considerably.
Sarriball prevailed over Gegenpressing on the night and all is now set for the Premier League cracker on Saturday
Speaking ahead of the game, Chelsea’s star man, Hazard said: “I think the game on Saturday is going to be more important because of the win today and in the league they are also incredible. It’s a good confidence boost and we need to try and beat them on Saturday.”
