Chelsea defeat Liverpool 2-1 in Carabao Cup third round

- Chelsea have made it to the fourth round of the Carabao Cup

- The Blues defeated Liverpool 2-1 on Wednesday night at Anfield

- Belgium international Eden Hazard scored the winning goal for the Stamford Bridge club

Chelsea have qualified for the next round of the 2018 Carabao Cup after coming from behind to beat Premier League rivals Liverpool 2-1 on Wednesday night, September 26.

Liverpool would have themselves to blame not to have won this encounter as they allowed Chelsea to score two goals that sent them out of the championship.

The first half ended goalless as both teams failed to find the back of the net at the Anfield Stadium.

But Liverpool scored their goal in the 59th minute when Naby Keita located Englishman Daniel Sturridge with a brilliant pass, and he wasted no time sending Caballero the wrong direction.

Chelsea came back into the game in the 79th minute as Emerson Palmieri restored parity for the Blues before Eden Hazard came off the bench to score the winning goal for the Blues in the 86th minute.
