Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction vs Liverpool FC



Chelsea hosts Liverpool on Sunday in an all big six match-up that features two sides anxious to get a win, and thus wash the taste of stinging defeat out their mouth. Both the Reds and Blues suffered morale dropping losses in midweek European competition, so both will be fired up to course correct here.

Let’s take a look at who Chelsea manager Frank Lampard might select in his first team, when they take to the pitch agains the table topping Anfield club.

Midfielder Ross Barkley came off the bench against Valencia on Tuesday night and missed what could have been a point salvaging penalty kick.

He is unlikely to start, and may not even feature against Liverpool. Mason Mount is an injury doubt due to the ankle injury he picked up on Tuesday night.

Tammy Abraham had a hat-trick last weekend, and his hot start to the season should keep Olivier Giroud out of the starting XI. Christian Pulisic, despite feeling alright about his start to the season, has not featured since returning from the international break, and may end up an unused sub yet again.
