Liverpool vs Chelsea team news: Blues' 'fantastic' player absent from training

Liverpool vs Chelsea team news – Kai Havertz could be a doubt for Blues as he’s reportedly missing from training. It would be a blow for the visitors.

Per Football London, Kai Havertz wasn’t seen at Chelsea training on Wednesday. The German was absent from available footage, suggesting he’s a doubt for Saturday.

Chelsea will travel to Anfield to face Liverpool. Both teams are desperate for a win and, above all, a good performance. Their respective form this season have been pretty terrible by the usual standards.

Havertz would be a big miss for Chelsea, too. Graham Potter is a big fan of the player, labelling him ‘fantastic’ and starting him in virtually every game.

It remains to be seen if Chelsea can sign another couple of players to replace him before Saturday.

Liverpool will be missing several key players as well, of course. Luis Díaz remains out, as do Diogo Jota and Virgil van Dijk. There are doubts about Darwin Nunez and Roberto Firmino, too.

This would balance the scales a little, then. Liverpool don’t necessarily face an uphill battle, given Chelsea’s form, but they go into every game at the moment without their preferred squad.

We’re also waiting on a proper update for Harvey Elliott. Jurgen Klopp said after the game that the 19-year-old had picked up a knock to his ankle against Wolves.

He didn’t offer much further other than to say it wasn’t overly serious. Elliott did play through it, after all.

But we do need to hope that there hasn’t been an adverse reaction to it. Liverpool will be light no matter what and Elliott would make the situation worse with an absence.

It’s a massive game for Liverpool – one that could dramatically lift spirits at Anfield. The Reds will want every advantage available.
