Chelsea entertain Liverpool at Stamford Bridge this evening with both sides vying for a place in the final of the Capital One Cup.
As expected, Jose Mourinho has made wholesale changes to his starting eleven with the likes of Thibaut Courtois, John Terry, Cesc Fabregas, Eden Hazard and Diego Costa all recalled.
However, Gary Cahill is surprisingly dropped to the bench with Kurt Zouma keeping his place in defence, while Filipe Luis is also preferred to Cesar Azpilicueta at left-back.
Brendan Rodgers has recalled Mario Balotelli to the Liverpool bench but Daniel Sturridge won’t be involved for the Reds tonight.
Steven Gerrard is recalled along with centre-back Martin Skrtel, while Glen Johnson drops to the bench.
Here are the confirmed line-ups:
Courtois; Ivanovic, Zouma, Terry, Filipe Luis; Matic, Fabregas; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Diego Costa
Subs: Cech, Azpilicueta, Cahill, Ake, Ramires, Remy and Drogba.
Mignolet, Can, Skrtel, Sakho, Lucas, Henderson, Moreno, Markovic, Gerrard, Coutinho, Sterling
