“What a goal from the Magician” wrote Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley just a few hours after Eden Hazard‘s masterpiece which ensured a capital win at Anfield and one more step in the Carabao Cup 2018/19.
“Win in a very difficult pitch, in a very special field” says Alvaro Morata, while captain Cesar Azpilicueta had more than a positive word for Chelsea fans: “Happy for the win and qualification in a difficult stadium! Now’s time to focus on Saturday! Thanks for your amazing support”.
Emerson Palmieri leveled up the score with 10 minutes left to go, before the Belgian star secured a massive victory with a stunning slalom goal to complete a massive comeback. Palmieri wrote on Instagram: “What a great night, what a moment!!! First goal,qualification and very happy to play my first 90min this season! Well done Blues!”
“It is all about team spirit” believes defender David Luiz, who scored an amazing free-kick with Chelsea at Anfield back in 2017, under Antonio Conte’s management.
