          Chelsea spoiled Liverpool’s perfect start to the season when a late Eden Hazard stunner dumped the Premier League leaders out of the Carabao Cup Wednesday night.

           Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge had opened the scoring on 58 minutes, before Chelsea’s Emerson Palmieri pegged Jurgen Klopp’s runaway side back eleven minutes from time.
The match was headed to penalties when Hazard, receiving the ball outside the box on the right wing, skipped through Liverpool’s defense before whipping a shot into the top corner to score a stunning winner with five minutes to go.
       Chelsea’s assistant coach Gianfranco Zola hailed the mercurial Belgian as “one of the best in the world” following the late solo goal, according to the BBC. “It’s a fantastic goal. Not only the beauty of it but for the time he scored it,” the former Chelsea talisman said of the second-half sub, adding that he felt the best is yet to come from a “remarkable” player.
