KXIP vs KKR Live Score

"I am very happy with the performance of Fabregas and Cahill, they played 90 minutes after a long time, but I don't know at the moment if they are ready to play twice in a week for 90 minutes", Sarri said.

Eden Hazard scored a superb victor as Chelsea came from behind to beat Liverpool 2-1 at Anfield in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

Sarri's thoughts ahead of Saturday's game against Liverpool!

The Italian told reporters at his pre-match press conference yesterday that there was no psychological advantage to be gained as both sides had chosen to omit some of their regular starters at Anfield and Liverpool were still on their best league run, with six wins in as many games, since the 1990-91 season.

He is on course for his most prolific season since joining Chelsea, but manager Maurizio Sarri is still demanding more from the "genius".

"I think maybe they can increase their determination after Wednesday". It's very hard to compare him with other players.

For the first time in ten years, Luka Modric broke the Messi /Ronaldo jinx after he was named the FIFA World Best Player.

"More continuity from the physical point of view, from the mental point of view".

"I have spoken with him but I think that there is October, November, December, so I think that he has to wait", said Sarri. "And I want everything". Three players are offside - two for sure. No player is not defendable.

"And then Mateo Kovacic is running with the ball like a Formula One vehicle and N'Golo Kante, don't forget him".

"We shouldn't be surprised things like this can happen, especially against a really strong side when you don't use your chances. We have got to try and beat Liverpool on Saturday".

At the London Stadium, West Ham gave Macclesfield, who now sit bottom of the entire Football League, a lesson in ruthless finishing.

Klopp added: "Before we started it was clear that a game against Chelsea at Chelsea will not be a children's birthday or whatever, that's pretty intense".

Hazard's stunning victor made it a disappointing night for Klopp's team, but it will all be forgotten if they can win the Premier League rematch at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Watching with interest on Saturday will be champions Manchester City, who are also unbeaten with five wins and a draw.
