English Premier League Report: Chelsea v Liverpool 29 September 2018

Giggs leaves out Manchester United in list of Premier League challengers

Liverpool have started the season off strong in their bid to capture the Premier League crown, with Jürgen Klopp's side winning their first six matches.

Chelsea star Eden Hazard claims he has "retired" his famed knee slide celebration, citing adverse after effects as the reason behind the move.

Head coach Sarri reiterated after the 1-1 draw that he believes Hazard can score 40 goals this season.

"Hazard brings something the others do not - dribbling ability, running at pace, beating several men from deep before delivering a spectacular finish, " he said according to Mirror UK.

Hazard's well taken goal against Liverpool, a league-high sixth for the campaign, very almost earned Chelsea all three points and was the highlight of another excellent performance.

Sarri said he is confident that his Chelsea team may not be as far behind Liverpool as some may have thought, this season.

"So I'd say it was between those two but you can't discount Chelsea".

The 27-year-old had been strongly linked with a transfer away from Stamford Bridge in the summer window, with Real Madrid touted as a possible destination.

If Chelsea still had Diego Costa, you could pretty much make them title favourites, but Costa is now an Atletico Madrid player and none of his replacements have shown themselves to be good enough to take his place.

In a brief statement , the airline said it could confirm that "all on board were able to safely evacuate the aircraft". Papua New Guinea's Accident Investigation Commission (AIC) said it was preparing to send investigators to Weno.

Despite boasting a decent enough return of three goals in seven league appearances, Mohamed Salah clearly isn't on top of his game.

So it's all on Hazard then!

But the dead eye for goal shown by the Egyptian last season to earn that accolade ahead of the likes of Lionel Messi and Hazard was missing as Liverpool paid for a wasteful start.

But Liverpool arrive at Stamford Bridge with their 100% record still intact.

Here are the best of the day's Premier League stats.

There is no doubt that Salah will continue to score goals by the bucketload for Liverpool.

But having scored 44 goals in all competitions last season, Salah has a mountain to climb if he is to do that again.

"I am the same player as two years ago, three years ago".
