Magnificent Hazard ends Liverpool's 100 per cent start

Wolves are the best newly-promoted side in Premier League history says Phil Neville

Morata headed over with another chance and Chelsea were made to pay when Keita wriggled past their defence and forced Caballero into a fine save.

Facing his former club, Sturridge broke the deadlock on Merseyside after opening the scoring on the 59th minute, tucking home an acrobatic effort after Keita forced Chelsea gloveman Willy Caballero to make a save, though the Argentine was only able to parry to ball in the direction of Sturridge who finished accordingly.

Maurizio Sarri turned to Hazard as the hour mark approached, but the change did not initially have the desired effect as Liverpool edged in front 60 seconds later.

Chelsea made a bright start to the Carabao Cup third-round clash at Anfield, where Alvaro Morata nearly gave them the lead.

Liverpool host Chelsea in the Carabao Cup 3rd round today at Anfield.

Sarri is the 12th managerial appointment in 15 years of Abramovich's reign as Chelsea owner and Harris, who was known as a no-nonsense defender for Chelsea in the '60s and '70s, has called on the Russian to give the Italian schemer time to fully realise his ideas at west London.

Before those chances, Willian was lively for the Blues, delivering a corner which was headed over by Andreas Christensen before the Brazilian tried his luck with a long-range shot Mignolet was able to gather.

Moments later, Morata snuck into space near the left edge of the area to collect Willian's pass, turned inside Joel Matip and snapped a strike towards the near post that Mignolet palmed away.

The late kick-off also witnessed some drama as Spurs beat Watford 4-2 on penalties after 90 minutes failed to separate the two sides.

Now it was Liverpool's turn to send in the big guns with Mohamed Salah joining Roberto Firmino on the field, but there was to be no repeat of last week's late heroics against Paris Saint-Germain. Brilliant cross for Mane in the first half was the highlight but he was a livewire all night, even before Liverpool started playing well.

Sturridge did the hard part by turning Caballero, but the veteran striker then shanked wide with his weaker right foot with an open goal gaping.

Fortune clearly wasn't in the home side's favour.

Another mixup, caused by an very bad header from Ross Barkley, gave Mane a similar opportunity, but the No. 10's effort was blocked.

Their luck changed just before the hour, though.

Barkley was the first man to a free-kick whipped from the right wing to the near post and though Mignolet repelled the midfielder's effort, Emerson was primed to convert the rebound.
