Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp disclose his tactics to deal with Eden Hazard after Anfield superb goal

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will not direct his side to target Eden Hazard on their visit to Stamford Bridge after the Belgian came off the bench to hand the Blues victory in their Carabao Cup clash at Anfield in mid-week.

Hazard has scored six goals in seven games in all competitions so far this season and has been challenged to score 40 goals before the end of the current campaign by his new manager, Maurizio Sarri.
The Reds manager Klopp has revealed he will not instruct his players to mark the Chelsea striker Hazard and has told Liverpool to play their own game and go for the win.

Klopp stated in his pre-match press conference:
No, I will not man-mark Hazard,  He is much more flexible. He is all over the park. I have the biggest respect for this player. I love it, what a player, but it is not to defend alone. Yes it is difficult, but we have to do all the things around it: close spaces, make passes more difficult.
I think one of our biggest chances on Wednesday came when we won the ball off Hazard. When Daniel Sturridge hit the crossbar, I think it came from Hendo Jordan Henderson winning the ball, past the next one, Daniel has the ball. Crossbar. All these things are possible. It is about what we do.
