CHELSEA

  • Chelsea slipped to a 0-1 loss in the Champions League at home to Valencia in midweek as Ross Barkley missed a penalty to compound matters.
  • Mason Mount had to come off injured in that game and is expected to miss some time with the ankle injury so Pedro may come in here.

Unavailable: Van Ginkel (Injured), Loftus-Cheek (Injured)

Doubtful: Emerson (Injured), Kante (Injured), Rudiger (Injured), James (Injured), Mount (Injured), Hudson-Odoi (Injured)

LIVERPOOL

  • Liverpool slipped to defeat in the Champions League in midweek as they came unstuck in Naples and they face another tough away day here.
  • Jurgen Klopp will be concerned at some of his team's defending and the fact they have only kept 1 clean sheet in 8 competitive games.
  • There will likely be a couple of rotations with Gomez, Wijnaldum and possibly Oxlade-Chamberlain coming into the starting eleven.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Adrian; Gomez, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Henderson; Salah, Firmino, Mane

Unavailable: Clyne (Injured), Alisson (Injured), Origi (Injured)

Doubtful: Keita (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Chelsea are showing some improvement in recent weeks as the youngsters that Lampard is giving playing time to are starting to settle into life in the Premier League. They still have some way to go however and Liverpool should have plenty of joy exposing their defensive frailties here.
