Chelsea welcome Premier League leaders Liverpool to Stamford Bridge this afternoon for ‘Super Sunday’s heavyweight clash.
Frank Lampard is handed a huge boost as N’Golo Kante is passed fit to start after recovering from injury while Mason Mount also passes a late fitness check to start having made a swift recovery from an ankle injury that he picked up against Valencia last week.
Emerson returns at left-back and it appears Chelsea have moved to a back four with Tomori alongside Andreas Christensen meaning Kurt Zouma has to settle for a place on the bench. Jorginho keeps his place in midfield while Willian supports Tammy Abraham in the Chelsea attack.
Jurgen Klopp has made just one change from the side that lost at Napoli with Gini Wijnaldum coming in for James Milner in midfield. Joel Matip once again starts alongside Virgil van Dijk in defence while Fabinho and Jordan Henderson retain their places in the middle of the park.
Liverpool go with their feared front three as Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane once again support Roberto Firmino while Rhian Brewster is named on the bench with Divock Origi ruled out due to injury.
Here are the confirmed line-ups:
Kepa; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Tomori, Emerson; Kanté, Jorginho, Kovacic; Willian, Abraham, Mount.
Subs: Alonso, Barkley, Pedro, Caballero, Zouma, Pulisic, Batshuayi
Adrian, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Mane, Salah, Firmino.
Subs: Kelleher, Milner, Gomez, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lallana, Shaqiri, Brewster.
