The Premier League trophy is at Anfield for Liverpool's game against Chelsea

"In that sense we are more solid than when we were back then when we were relying on individual quality and individual players".

Joel Matip has shown admirable form alongside Virgil van Dijk and that is most likely to be the partnership the Reds will go with as they pursue the Premier League and Champions League. If the other boys are fit we can give Joe time to get to full fitness and match practice elsewhere.

It's a busy Sunday where the Reds will aim to not overlook this important match ahead of a midweek trip to Porto in the Champions League quarterfinals.

However none of those games have gone down in history as the one on 27th April 2014 when Steven Gerrard's slip famously contributed to a 2-0 win for Chelsea that dented Liverpool's title challenge.

Asked how he plans to stop the brilliant Belgian this weekend, Klopp joked: "We will take 13 players, and two will play only against Eden".

"The best way to try to make sure that he can not shine is to avoid passes to him, react a little bit better than other teams did".

"Eden Hazard, on his day, can be the world's best", said the German. React a little bit better than other teams did.

"I like footballers like this".

"It's not easy, because when he has the ball it's already too late". You go and do your job, you go to win. You need help from somewhere else.

Then we saw what he can do as he produced a sensational winning goal in the League Cup game against Liverpool at Anfield earlier this season, with his class shining through in a tie that was evenly balanced heading into the closing stages. "We are in a very good physical and mental condition right now".

What a final few weeks we have in store.
