Liverpool Team News

Goalkeeper: Alisson

Adrian played the game against Sheffield United and kept a clean sheet after Alisson missed out.

The Brazilian Goalkeeper was not available for the match due to death of his father.

However, Klopp has confirmed that he would play against Chelsea.

Defence: Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ozan Kabak, Fabinho, Robertson

In defence on both wings, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson would start as expected.

However, Klopp has a difficult decision to make with his two defenders to pick for the Chelsea game.

Midfield: Wijnaldum, Thiago, Jones

Jurgen Klopp is expected to keep Curtis Jones in midfield again for the Chelsea game after his goal against Sheffield United.

Despite his poor start in England, Thiago would more likely start alongside Wijnaldum.

Attack: Salah, Firmino, Mane

With Diogo Jota back in the Liverpool squad, there are more attacking options available for Jurgen Klopp.

Despite his return, Liverpool should play the usual front three without any chances in attack.

Likely Liverpool Team Vs Chelsea (4-3-3): Alisson, Kabak, Alexander-Arnold, Robertson, Fabinho, Jones, Wijnaldum, Thiago, Mane, Salah, Firmino.

Chelsea Team News

Goalkeeper Eduardo Mendy is expected to keep his place in the Chelsea team after his performance against Manchester United.

In defence, Chelsea should play the regular back three of Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Christensen, with Thiago Silva not yet back to full fitness.

So to face Liverpool, Chelsea are likely to play James, Alonso, Kante, Kovacic.

For the Chelsea attack, MySportDab expect Tuchel to start the likes of Giroud, Werner, and Mount against Liverpool.
