Hazard came off the bench to slot a stunning victor as Chelsea sneaked past Liverpool 2-1 in the League Cup at Anfield on Wednesday, and should start against the Reds in today's Stamford Bridge rematch.
Liverpool, though, will quickly have a chance for revenge as they head to Chelsea protecting a ideal Premier League record for a blockbuster Stamford Bridge clash on Saturday.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says his side are itching to "strike back" at Chelsea following their English League Cup defeat against the Blues as they seek the ideal response by extending their flawless start to the Premier League season on Saturday.
I think Chelsea will have a problem in the summer. It's very hard to compare him with other players.
Overall, the 27-year-old Winger rated 6.8, per Whoscored.com and only better Alvaro Morata (6.3), Cesar Azpilicueta (6.6), Ross Barkley (6.3) and Gary Cahill (6.4)- all of whom also played the entire minutes on Wednesday.
He added: "I think this game was more to have the confidence in three days' time". He has a lot to give, to the team, to the staff.More news: Tropical Storm Kirk Weakens Again As It Continues Moving West
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp bemoaned Chelsea's equaliser, questioning VAR following the first goal. The Chelsea game was a very interesting game. No player is not defendable.
He said: "How do we defend Jorginho?" Aye, aye, aye. And then (Mateo) Kovacic is running with the ball like a Formula One vehicle and (N'Golo) Kante, don't forget him. If one 100 per cent challenge is made from four or five [possible challenges] then Eden Hazard can't do what he did.
"We shouldn't be surprised things like this can happen, especially against a really strong side when you don't use your chances". We won so in the league we will change some players; they will change some players but we want to win again.
The two teams face each other at Stamford Bridge on Saturday in the Premier League.
However, they were beaten midweek by their opponents on Saturday.
At the London Stadium, West Ham gave Macclesfield, who now sit bottom of the entire Football League, a lesson in ruthless finishing.
"The rest are pretty good, but with Virgil we have to wait".
