Gianfranco Zola lavished praise on Eden Hazard after the Belgian star netted the winner in Chelsea FC’s 2-1 win against Liverpool FC at Anfield in the Carabao Cup third round on Wednesday night.
Hazard started the cup clash on the bench as Maurizio Sarri looked to rest the Belgium international ahead of their Premier League clash against Liverpool FC at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.
Daniel Sturridge broke the deadlock in the second half with an acrobatic goal to net his ninth goal in nine games in the League Cup.
January signing Emerson Palmieri levelled the Carabao Cup tie from close range to leave the clash heading towards a penalty shootout.
However, substitute Hazard scored a dramatic winner with five minutes to go after the Belgian star beat three defenders before he placed a finish past compatriot Simon Mignolet.
