Klopp bemoans Liverpool defending after Carabao Cup exit to Chelsea

Steven Gerrard Fernando Torres

Blues boss Maurizio Sarri has enjoyed a superb start to life in the dugout at Stamford Bridge and Chelsea only dropped their first points of the Premier League campaign at the weekend.

Chelsea fans can count their blessings the Belgian stayed in west London this season after speculation with a move to Real Madrid started to gain serious traction, and given the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, Los Blancos may seriously need the Chelsea talisman in the near future - especially if you consider tonight's defeat against Sevilla.

Daniel Sturridge was sent through on goal though in the 46th minute and managed to deftly round the Chelsea keeper - the open goal there for the taking.

Two of those brought in by Sarri and Klopp tested their opposing goalkeepers early on, as Andreas Christensen sent a header at Simon Mignolet, before Naby Keita fired a shot into the palms of Willy Caballero.

Mignolet, making his first appearance of the season, was then called on for two crucial saves to deny Alvaro Morata in quick succession.

But Eden Hazard came off the bench to inspire a dramatic late turnaround as Chelsea struck twice in the last 11 minutes at Anfield. The rebound was behind Sturridge but he made amends for his miss with a terrific acrobat strike into the net.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri satisfied with West Ham United draw
Three points from the London Stadium as West Ham held Chelsea to a 0-0 draw to end the Blues' 100 percent start to the season. We have to work and improve and then maybe in a year it will be the same level as Liverpool".

There's no doubting that Jurgen Klopp has assembled a very strong starting lineup at Liverpool, but the first half of this match showed how they are still struggling for strength in depth, particularly in defence.

So with five teams progressing past the third-round of the League Cup this evening, what did we learn?

"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".

He only played 34 minutes and only did one noteworthy thing, but what a thing it was.

Knocking Chelsea out of the Champions League at the semi-finals stage before going on to claim the trophy in Istanbul, it halted the Portuguese's efforts at winning European football's biggest prize two years in succession, with two different clubs.
