Team news
Mason Mount suffered an ankle injury against Valencia and is very much a 50/50 call here.

N’Golo Kante is back in training and could be risked, however Antonio Rudiger is set to miss out again.

Joe Gomez started the Super Cup meeting between the two earlier in the season and could start ahead of Trent Alexander-Arnold.

With Alisson still out, it’s hard to see any other surprises in the Liverpool XI.

Expected starting XI’s
Chelsea (3-4-3): Kepa; Tomori, Christensen, Zouma; Azpilicueta, Jorginho, Kovacic, Alonso; Pedro, Abraham, Willian
Liverpool (4-3-3): Adrian; Gomez, van Dijk, Matip, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane
