Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker

The Brazilian will be hoping to keep himself in contention for the Premier League Golden Glove, he’d be miles ahead had he not missed the first two months of the season.

Right back: Trent Alexander-Arnold

Trent netted a superb goal against the Blues at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season, another wouldn’t go amiss.

Centre back: Joe Gomez

The Englishman hasn’t been completely at the races since the restart but has shown flashes of his former self, he’ll need to be at his best against an in from Olivier Giroud.

Centre back: Virgil van Dijk

Big Virg made a rare error against Arsenal, that’s his one error for the decade out of the way at least.

Left back: Andy Robertson

Robbo bagged an assist at the Emirates last time out, he’ll be looking to build on a strong performance.

 

Defensive midfield: Fabinho

The best defensive midfielder in the world shows up for big games, this one of the biggest in our calendar each season.

Centre midfield: Gini Wijnaldum

The Dutchman’s industriousness will be essential to winning the midfield battle against an energetic Chelsea side.

Centre midfield: Naby Keita

Naby Lad has proven to be a bright spark for the Reds since football restarted, he is finally showing the form he promised when we bought him.

Right wing: Mo Salah

Mo was off the boil at the Emirates, he has been out of sorts with his finishing lately, he has scored a blinder against Chelsea in the past.

Left wing: Sadio Mane

Sadio never lets us down, he always gives it 1000% even when things aren’t going his way. This determination will be crucial to closing down a leaky Chelsea back line.

Striker: Bobby Firmino

Bobby has his last chance to score an Anfield goal in the league this season.
