EPL: Big win takes Man City back to top spot

Midfield: Unfortunately Chelsea will be without Cesc Fabregas as the Spaniard has been ruled out with a fever so Jorginho could keep his place in the deep lying playmaker role tomorrow.

Eden Hazard has travelled to Belarus to be part of the squad for the game.

Carragher, who spent his whole career with Liverpool and clocked up over 700 appearances, says his former side deserve credit for their start to the season, despite conceding a late equaliser to Arsenal on Saturday. That doesn't mean Liverpool can't win the league.

"I watched the game and Liverpool struggled a lot", Mateo Kovacic said. In Belgrade the atmosphere is tough and it was hard for Liverpool, like it will be here.

These are the games where you need to concentrate a lot because if you don't, you lose.

Of course, these things are virtual guarantees in the eyes of many fans, which is why very few folks were shocked to see what transpired when they met at the weekend.

The three-time Premier League champions earned a record 100 points to clinch the title in the last campaign and also scored a whooping 106 goals.

While speaking to reporters, the 29-year-old Spaniard explained that Chelsea can not afford to drop points if they want to go ahead of Manchester City, "It's in our hands".

"In the last 10 minutes, I only have in my head "I want to bring the ball home" and I think that's why I missed".

"We know that to get to that chance, you have to get the three points like we did against Crystal Palace".

While the lack of mention for Chelsea is baffling considering the impressive start made by Maurizio Sarri's side, it is seemingly a fair assessment from Carragher. So, in the last match, he played only for 30 minutes. Marcos Alonso played a good diagonal pass to find Pedro who fired past Hennessey in the visitor's goal.

West Ham beat Burnley 4-2, Tottenham held firm for a 3-2 victory away at Wolves and Manchester United fought back from a goal down to win 2-1 away at Bournemouth.
