Liverpool fans put rivalry aside to hail Eden Hazard

There is not a huge amount of love between Liverpool and Chelsea fans due to their rivalry over the years.

However, it seems that plenty of Reds supporters are finding it tough to hate the West London outfit and their key players this season.

Chelsea currently have Maurizio Sarri at the helm following Antonio Conte’s departure in the summer.

The Italian has played down the Blues’ chances of winning the Premier League title this season, but they are unbeaten in seven matches.

Liverpool are also yet to lose a top-flight game, and on Saturday the two clubs went head-to-head at Stamford Bridge in an entertaining clash.

Eden Hazard opened the scoring for Chelsea with a well-worked goal in the 25th minute and it looked as though the Blues were going to collect all three points until substitute Daniel Sturridge hit a sublime strike two minutes from the end.

After the match, Hazard spoke to the BBC, praising the Liverpool striker for the quality goal.
