Jurgen Klopp has explained how Liverpool plan to counter “the world’s best” Eden Hazard.

Liverpool face Chelsea in our game to watch on Sunday, with the Reds hoping to capitalise on home advantage at Anfield.

It could be Hazard’s final game against Klopp’s side in the Premier League, with the Belgian seemingly destined to leave Stamford Bridge in a state of purgatory this summer.

Klopp paid tribute to the forward on Friday.

“On his day he can be the world’s best immediately,” he said.

“He has had a brilliant career so far and he is one of the things I like a lot about football.

“He is a good player but with all good players, they have to play against us and we will try everything to deny a couple of his skills and that will help us.

“We will try to make sure he doesn’t shine. Reading the game and reading passes to him, reacting a little better.

“When he has the ball it’s already too late. Read the game, read the passes. One v one you can’t defend him.

“It’s not easy – but in some situations you can’t defend and hopefully help will come in from somewhere else.

“We will take 13 players this time, and two will play only against Eden!
