Kickoff from Stamford Bridge in Fulham, London is slated for 12:30 p.m. ET.

The forward scored a hat-trick against Cardiff in the Premier League and bagged a sublime victor for the Blues at Liverpool in their Carabao Cup third round tie on Wednesday.

The Brazilian had thwarted Willian before Eden Hazard's breakthrough for the Blues in the first half and then did the same to deny the latter with the score at 1-0 after the interval.

With his sixth goal of the season to leave him top of the scorer charts after seven games played, Eden Hazard has scored six from just eight shots on target so far in the Premier League this season.

Both teams made sweeping changes on Wednesday, but not too numerous players that ran out midweek are likely to feature at the weekend as the the intensity gets cranked right up.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has explained why he was furious with winger Xherdan Shaqiri following their defeat against Chelsea.

It's never nice to lose a game of football, no matter the circumstances or the competition but the midweek loss to Chelsea shouldn't incite panic among Liverpool supporters.

The Brazilian-born Italian worldwide has completed well over 200 more passes than any other midfielder in the Premier League this season including a league record of 180 against West Ham. We all get judged constantly and for the boys it's much more important what I think than what you think.

"Remember just two years ago they were the champions and they've got players in that dressing room who know what it takes - Liverpool haven't got that, but you've got to start somewhere and Liverpool have been impressive".

Hazard's victor at Anfield this week was a goal that will not quickly be forgotten, but his strike on Saturday deserves nearly as many plaudits given the team move that preceded it.
