Jurgen Klopp: ‘Liverpool can stop Eden Hazard’
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has said that his side can stop Chelsea winger Eden Hazard at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.
The two clubs are meeting for the second time in three days, with a magnificent individual strike from Hazard earning the Blues a 2-1 victory in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night.
Hazard will start for Chelsea having come off the bench earlier this week, but Klopp feels that his backline can nullify the threat offered by the Belgium international.
At a press conference, the 50-year-old told reporters: “Stop passes to him? Good idea? Being close? Good idea, but he likes players being close sometimes.
“We all know we could have stopped that goal but he used that situation. No player is not defendable. We have to close the right spaces.”
Hazard has scored six goals from seven appearances in all competitions this season.
