Hazard stunner dumps Liverpool out of Carabao Cup

Eden Hazard is "one of the best in the world", Chelsea assistant manager Gianfranco Zola said after the forward scored a stunning late winner against Liverpool in the Carabao Cup.

The Belgium international's finish into the far corner with five minutes remaining sealed victory as Chelsea came from behind to end Premier League leaders Liverpool's perfect start to the season and reach the fourth round.

Hazard was introduced as a substitute in the second half and although he was quiet for much of it, he burst into action by beating Alberto Moreno and smashing home.

The Blues had been the better side in the first half with striker Alvaro Morata somehow striking a shot across the goalline and the Spaniard also nodded a free header over the crossbar.
