📋 Team News: Chelsea
Regarding absentees, there’s just the sole fitness concern for the Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel to contend with from an otherwise fully-primed squad. Ben Chilwell (Fitness) misses out.
We think that The Blues should employ a 3-4-1-2 formation for this one, utilising Edouard Mendy, Cesar Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, Antonio Ruediger, Reece James, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Jorginho, Marcos Alonso, Mason Mount, Kai Havertz and Romelu Lukaku.
ℹ️ Team News: Liverpool
Thanks to a largely full-strength group, there is just the lone fitness worry for the Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp to contend with. Fabinho (Thigh Problems) won’t be in action.
We reckon that The Reds seem most likely to utilise a 4-3-3 formation with a starting lineup of Alisson Becker, T. Alexander-Arnold, Ibrahima Konate, Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson, Naby Keita, Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Luis Diaz.
We’re inclined to think that Chelsea will have a tough ask to find the net against this Liverpool lineup who we reckon should get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
We’re going for a hard-fought 0-1 victory for Liverpool at the end of this one.
It should be a good one.
