Jurgen Klopp insists it is possible to stop Eden Hazard ahead of Liverpool FC’s trip to Chelsea FC.

The Reds will make the long trip to Stamford Bridge in Saturday’s evening kick-off in the Premier League.

Liverpool FC have won their opening six Premier League games to sit at the top of the Premier League table.

The Merseyside outfit lost 2-1 to the west London side in the Carabao Cup third round on Tuesday night.

Hazard scored an 85th minute winner against Liverpool FC to knock Jurgen Klopp’s side out of the competition.

The 27-year-old has scored six times in eight games in all competitions in the current campaign so far.

Speaking to Liverpool FC’s pre-match media conference at Melwood training ground on Saturday evening, Klopp said:

“Stop passes to him? Good idea? Being close? Good idea, but he likes players being close sometimes. We all know we could have stopped that goal but he used that situation. No player is not defendable. We have to close the right spaces.”

Liverpool FC have lost their last two meetings against Chelsea FC to raise doubts about their ability to beat the west London side.

The Merseyside outfit are in first place in the Premier League table and two points ahead of Manchester City and Chelsea FC.

Liverpool FC have never won the Premier League title but have finished in second place in 2002, 2009 and 2014.

The Merseyside outfit signed Alisson Becker, Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri this summer.
