Andy Townsend lavished praise on Eden Hazard for his stunning victor in Chelsea FC's 2-1 win against Liverpool FC at Anfield in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.

In other games, Arsenal host Brentford at the Emirates and Tottenham Hotspur take on Watford at Wembley.

Elsewhere Chelsea edged past Liverpool 2-1 in a pulsating encounter on Merseyside, while Nottingham Forest survived a late Stoke revival to beat Gary Rowett's men 3-2.

Hazard defeated a number of Liverpool defenders before firing an unstoppable shot beyond Simon Mignolet to earn the victory and Zola's praise.

Can Chelsea rely on Hazard for the whole season? Three players are offside - two for sure.

This could prove to be the ideal opportunity for Pellegrini to leave a serious lasting impression at the London Stadium, and etch his name into West Ham folklore. The West Ham match on Sunday showed what happens when he has an off-day, but those are the exception rather than the rule.

Like his counterpart Klopp, Sarri made eight changes to his team for this Carabao Cup tie but there were no weak links in the Chelsea line-up.

It's Chelsea that moves on to the round of 16, while Liverpool exits the competition early on.

Fabinho will be the Reds' defensive midfielder, partnered with James Milner and Naby Keita, who has seen his minutes reduced in the past few weeks.

The visitors were coming out on top in the midfield battle, largely thanks to the work of Cesc Fabregas to pull the strings from deep.

Liverpool led in the 58th minute, though, Sturridge turning in an acrobatic finish after Caballero could only push away Mane's drive, Azpilicueta's loose pass having put his team in trouble.

"I think it was a fantastic goal, especially not only for the beauty of it but for the moment he scored and he was all on his own, I guess - four defenders - and it was an unbelievable goal".

Watch the Liverpool forward's blunder below and decide for yourself.

Klopp compared Hazard's goal to the Roberto Firmino's last-gasp effort against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last week.
