The Spaniard spent six years at Liverpool and lead them to Champions League glory to cement himself as a Kop legend but there will be no time for sentiment as he brings his Chelsea side to Anfield desperate for points as they fight to finish in the top four.
Striker Fernando Torres also returns to Merseyside as he’s preferred to Demba Ba up front while there is no place for John Terry or Frank Lampard, who both start on the bench, and Ashley Cole remains out.
