Centre back: Fabinho

The Brazilian drops into the middle of defence, we’ve seen him there before.

Centre back: Virgil van Dijk

Virgil van Dijk made a mistake in the opening day fixture, he won’t be as sloppy this time around.

Left back: Andy Robertson

Andy Robbo, published author, had a blinder against Leeds, we’ll be hoping for more of the same.

Defensive midfield: Jordan Henderson

The skipper has scored worldies at Stamford Bridge in the past, another today wouldn’t go amiss.

Centre midfield: Naby Keita

The Guinean box to box player could be the locksmith we need today.

Centre midfield: Gini Wijnaldum

The Dutchman is set to remain at the Reds (hopefully), a strong performance today should remind us why.

Right wing: Mo Salah

Mo scored a hat-trick on the opening day, he will be looking to continue his fine form this afternoon.

Left wing: Sadio Mane

Sadio may not have scored against Leeds United but he did all the running, another strong performance is expected.

Striker: Bobby Firmino

Bobby Firmino netted at Stamford Bridge last season, let’s hope for more of the same.
