Chelsea are without the services of their English homegrown trio; Callum Hudson-Odoi, Reece James and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, as all of them are out with injury.
While N’Golo Kante was nearing full fitness and made it to the bench against Manchester United, the Frenchman has reportedly suffered a knock and could be unavailable against Liverpool.
As for Antonio Rudiger and Willian, the duo are nearing full fitness and they could feature on the bench against the Reds.
Meanwhile, for Liverpool, Alisson Becker is set to miss the game after Jurgen Klopp confirmed that the Goalkeeper is out for few weeks with a calf injury.
Frank Lampard’s men will be keen to show a reaction after the 4-0 mauling against Manchester United, while the return of Sadio Mane to the starting lineup will only make the Reds stronger in the attack.
We expect this one to be a highly entertaining game with both teams going for the kill, but it looks like the Merseyside club will come out on top owing to their superior confidence and quality all over the pitch.
