Chelsea FC will return to Europa League action on Thursday night when they take on Videoton at Stamford Bridge.

- Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge has scored 17 Premier League goals as a sub - only Olivier Giroud (19) and Jermain Defoe (24) have scored more off the bench in the history of the competition.

Asked if it is risky to rely so heavily on Hazard for goals, he replied: "Maybe, but I think at the end of the season we can have four or five players over 10 goals, so it's not only Hazard".

That was one hell of a shot! I just give my best every minute I get.

"I said before the game on Wednesday I really respect it".

"As for Man City, I watched them against Lyon and you think something might be wrong and then they go and put on a show against Cardiff".

Chelsea star Hazard performed his trademark move after scoring a stunning victor against Liverpool in the EFL Cup on Wednesday.

Mr Trump chose to pull the USA from the Iran deal, and defended that decision on Tuesday during his speech to the UN. An expert with the National Iranian American Council expressed a similar sentiment following Mr Trump's speech.

Maurizio Sarri will likely be the more disappointed given the time on the clock when Sturridge struck, but an EFL Cup win and Premier League draw with Liverpool in the space of three days is certainly no mean feat.

The England worldwide has been plagued by injuries in recent years and struggled to break up Liverpool's attacking trident of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino last season.

"We are not looking at this as the deciding factor of the season".

The striker said afterwards: "This one was a nice goal, but it's more about just getting a result. It's a long season, so we just have to stay focused".

Chelsea star Eden Hazard claims he has "retired" his famed knee slide celebration, citing adverse after effects as the reason behind the move. "He's a great player, a legend of the game". He was unfortunate not to get a clean sheet but he's a world-class goalkeeper, as is Si [Mignolet]. "It's important to keep pushing forward, having a positive outlook".

"But at the end I am really very happy - first of all with the performance and I think also a draw is the right result".
