The Liverpool players retreated. Despite his ability, he's nowhere near sharp enough to fill in for Salah or Firmino on a long-term basis.

The 24-year-old is not afraid to get his head up and dribble into space at defences, something that Liverpool saw first hand only a couple of days ago.

It's the biggest test of Sarri's Chelsea career so far and until this point, he's done pretty well.

Despite insisting that he wasn't prioritizing one competition over another, Klopp made eight changes to the starting eleven that ran out comfortable winners over Southampton at the weekend with AS Monaco transplant Fabinho, Nathaniel Clyne and Alberto Moreno joining Mignolet in making their first starts of the campaign.
