For Liverpool vs Chelsea game on Saturday, Pulisic and Zouma are unavailable but Ziyech and Kante are expected to be fully fit. Thus, here are the possible ways the Blues can line up against the Reds;
Option 1: Slight Change From The Squad That Played Arsenal
Chelsea demolished Arsenal last week so there is no point in changing what is not broken.
However, we see fit Kante walking into the starting XI and replaces Kovacic. While James and Alonso continue at wing-back after impressive displays at the Emirates.
Predicted XI: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; James, Kante, Jorginho, Alonso; Mount, Lukaku, Havertz.
Option 2: Few Changes From Arsenal Game
Tactically, James and Alonso could be exposed by Liverpool attackers, so it would make more sense to replace them with Azpi and Chilwell.
While Thiago Silva returns to the XI: we need his experience and leadership. And up front, Ziyech has proven he’s in a top form and should be given a nod over Havertz, who might come on in the second half.
Predicted XI: Mendy; Christensen, Thiago Silva, Rudiger; Azpilicueta, Kante, Jorginho, Chilwell; Ziyech, Lukaku, Mount
