Chelsea will struggle to keep Hazard warns Fabregas

Chelsea will struggle to keep Hazard warns Fabregas

If Chelsea defeat Liverpool for the second time this week, they'll leapfrog the Reds in the Premier League table.

And Liverpool have indicated their title credentials so far, although perhaps not quite in the manner in which most imagined.

The Merseyside outfit have beaten West Ham, Crystal Palace, Brighton, Leicester City, Spurs and Southampton in the current campaign.

The partnership of Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez in the centre and Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson's continued form from their excellent seasons previous year has seen Liverpool keep four clean sheets and concede just two goals so far.

After Saturday's game, Liverpool travel to Napoli for the second game of their Champions League campaign before welcoming Premier League champions Manchester City to Anfield on October 7.

Kepa, N'Golo Kante, Jorginho, Eden Hazard and Olivier Giroud are also expected to get recalls after being rested on Wednesday night.




Just when it seemed that the evenly-matched contest will head to penalties, the Belgian changed the course of the tie with a suave move, reiterating the fact that not only is he the best in England, but arguably among the top three footballers in the world.

Hazard, 27, has scored six goals in seven games for the Blues this season, including a brilliant solo victor against Liverpool in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Giggs believed that Liverpool and Manchester City were the pre-eminent challengers.

Alexander-Arnold has impressed in a far more solid Liverpool defensive unit than last season and kept Neymar quiet in the win over PSG. I think maybe they can increase their determination after Wednesday.

"German newspapers said I had an argument with Shaqiri - I hadn't", he added.

After a 2-1 win against Liverpool at Anfield, Chelsea welcome the Premier League leaders to London on Saturday (17:30 BST).
