​Chelsea star Eden Hazard rated his winner against Liverpool in the EFL Cup as one of the finest strikes of his career. 


The Belgian came off the bench in the second half and delivered the free-kick for Emerson Palmieri's 79th-minute leveller before scoring one of the best goals of the season in the 85th-minute. 


Starting off with a nutmeg on Roberto Firmino, Hazard exchanged a couple of passes with Cesar Azpilicueta before speeding past the entire Liverpool backline and unleashing a piledriver past Simon Mignolet. 



"I have scored some goals like that! Not all the time," Hazard told Chelsea TV after ending Liverpool's unbeaten start to the season, as quoted by FourFourTwo.


 "It is on the top of the list, top three.


"I remember around two years ago, the one against Arsenal at Stamford Bridge. That one was nice. This one also is one of the best, especially when you score against a big team and win the game. That's the most important thing."


"I like to play in these kinds of stadiums. The atmosphere is fantastic, from the Chelsea fans also who were awesome. I want to be a big player, if I want to big player, then I need to score in big games. That's what I did today."



With five goals in six appearances, Hazard is the top scorer in the Premier League alongside Fulham's Aleksandar Mitrovic this season.
