Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is talking tough ahead of their clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Despite seeing his side concede a late goal via Hazard’s wonderful solo goal on Wednesday, the German tactician said the Belgian isn’t undefendable.
According to the former Borussia Dortmund manager, Hazard is definitely one of the best players in the world but he’s not unstoppable.
“He did score – I respect that – but no player is not defendable.” he said
commenting on the player’s solo goal on Wednesday, Klopp blamed his players for giving the playmaker huge space to perform his skills and tricks before slotting the ball – past Simon Mignolet- to the bottom corner.
Speaking ahead of Saturday’s clash, Klopp said he is expecting another tough game against the West London club, much more than he saw on Wednesday.
“It will be intense. It’s a big one. Chelsea versus Liverpool already sounds good – we have to make sure it is good. It will not be easy.” Klopp said
He assured the Reds supporters that he has a special formation on how to frustrate Eden Hazard throughout the encounter, so, he predict the Belgian won’t be given the time and chance to display another awesome skill on Saturday.
Both clubs are yet to taste defeat in the Premier League so far this season and they are keen to continue their amazing start to the 2018-19 season.
Liverpool are on six-match winning run, taking 18 points from six matches. Chelsea on the other hand, have won five matches but they played a goalless draw against West Ham last weekend.
