The Blues remain unchanged from last week, which means their 4-3-3 remains intact.
Kepa Arrizabalaga retains his place between the sticks and he has Cezar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger and Marcos Alonso ahead of him.
Jorginho anchors the midfield and he’s flanked by N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic.
Eden Hazard, Willian and Eden Hazard complete the XI for the hosts.

Jurgen Klopp has made two changes and the big news is that Virgil van Dijk is fit to play and the towering Dutchman partners Joe Gomez in the heart of the Liverpool defence.
Alisson starts in goal, while the preferred fullbacks remain Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold.
James Milner, Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum feature in the midfield while up top it’s the fab three of Sadio Mane, Moahmed Salah and Roberto Firmino.
This fixture has never disappointed, with goalfests a virtual guarantee.
Chelsea have a slight edge since it’s home territory and their confidence will be high after they knocked the Reds out of the Carabao Cup in midweek.

However, the Reds will be eager to exact revenge and will strive to keep their perfect start to the Premier League season intact and a win in West London is certainly not out of their reach.

Liverpool: Alisson, Robertson, van Dijk, Gomez, Alexander-Arnold, Milner, Wijlandum, Henderson (C), Mane, Firmino and Salah.
