Willy Caballero : What a fantastic game caballero had . Got a hand while Sturridge was trying to round him up , saved that Mane’s shot and made other good stops . He was decent with the ball at his feet too. Very impressed .

Cesar Azpilicueta : Doesn’t look completely at home at the right back position , gave the ball away which led to the goal . He has to improve in the upcoming games .

Gary Cahill : Our captain for the night looked pretty solid , was not troubled by Liverpool . A solid performance .

Andreas Christensen : Looked calm , composed on the ball and played out really well from the back . A poor back pass almost led to a goal  but he looked good . Was taken off due to injury and hopefully it is not a long term injury .

Emerson Palmieri : Got the equalizing goal for Chelsea but was poor defensively , left too much space on the back .

Cesc Fabregas : A game of two halves for Cesc Fabregas . In the first half he was great , his passing was a joy to watch and he also created a great chance for Morata . But in the second half he couldn’t get hold of the game . Should have cleared the ball way  before Azpi gave it away that led to the Liverpool goal.

Ross Barkley : Was very lively in the first half and combined well with Moses . Didn’t look great in the second half . A stupid back header almost lead to a Liverpool goal but it was his header that led to the Chelsea’s equalizing goal.

Kovacic: Exchanged passes well with Fabregas and Barkley . Was taken off for Kante just after the hour mark .

Willian: Didn’t do much in the game except that outside of the foot cross which morata should have scored . Was taken off for Hazard before the hour mark . 

Victor Moses: Won the battle against Moreno although he did not have an attacking output .

Alvaro Morata: Looks  very short on confidence . Should have scored a goal but he didn’t .

Substitutes :
Eden Hazard : Man of the match . Played for only 35 minutes but was man of the match . Took the set piece that led to a goal and then scored a goal that will be remembered for years to come .

Kante : Was solid in the midfield area . Helped Chelsea to the victory .

David Luiz : Was commanding after he came on and he helped Chelsea hold on to the victory .What a win at Anfield for chelsea and now we are through to the next round of the carabao cup . My player review from liverpool vs chelsea
