Chelsea entertain Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon with both sides looking for a win to boost their title aspirations.

The Blues will be without influential midfielder Ramires for the clash after he picked up his fifth booking of the season during Thursday’s 1-0 win over Swansea, meaning Frank Lampard is in line for a recall.

Jose Mourinho is expected to make some changes to his starting eleven with Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta likely to come in for Ashley Cole and David Luiz in defence.

Andre Schurrle and Willian are also pushing for recalls while Fernando Torres is expected to replace Samuel Eto’o in attack.

As for Liverpool they will continue to be without the services of influential duo Steven Gerrard and Daniel Sturridge as the pair step up their recovery from injuries.

Jose Enrique is also still out while Jon Flanagan hasn’t recovered from a hamstring injury, so Aly Cissokho is likely to continue at left-back. Victor Moses is ineligible to face his parent club and Brendan Rodgers is expected to go with the same line-up that lost 2-1 to Manchester City on Boxing Day.

      To chelseafc manager mourniho please, do not devast the club by allowing the out dated player eto to play regularly than the creative player mata.
      I am a chelseafc fans please do not demolish my moral by making the young &creative players not to play.
      As a fans I advice you to include mata&luiz in your starting line up players so as to beat liverpool&other big clubs.
