Liverpool FC Starting XI Prediction vs Chelsea FC


Struggling Liverpool gets back into Premier League action on Tuesday when they host Chelsea. The Reds had an awful week last week, being knocked out of both the EFL and FA Cups.

Liverpool have won just once in 2017 and now find themselves in a top-4 battle for the rest of the season.

After Loris Karius played in both Cup games during the week, Simon Mignolet should return in goal for the Reds against Chelsea. He last played in a 3-2 loss to Swansea, but he should be the keeper moving forward.

Nathaniel Clyne isn’t expected back from his rib injury, so Trent Alexander-Arnold will get another start at right back for Liverpool. With him in the back will be Joel Matip, Dejan Lovren and James Milner, who are clear choices when healthy.

Here’s the link to the Liverpool FC injury report for this match. 

In the midfield, Emre Can, Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana should be in the starting XI. Henderson and Lallana are clear choices, and it appears Can has won the starting job over Georginio Wijnaldum for the third midfield spot. Lallana suffered a deep cut against Southampton in the EFL semifinal, but is available and needs to start.

Sadio Mane has returned to Liverpool after Senegal was knocked out of the African Cup of Nations, but his return was probably too late to get a start against Chelsea. He may be available off the bench, which would be a big boost for Liverpool. Firmino, Sturridge and Coutinho should be the starters on Tuesday.

  1. I think Liverpool will rejuvenate against Chelsea and get three points

  2. Minolet on goa;
    Defenders: Milner RB; Matip CB; Moreno LB;
    Midfielders: Henderson DM; Wijnaldum RDM; Adam Lallana LDM;
    FORWARDS: Sturridge; Firmino; Coultinho

  3. Minolet on goa;Defenders: Milner RB; Lovren CB; Matip CB; Moreno LB;Midfielders: Henderson DM; Wijnaldum RDM; Adam Lallana LDM;FORWARDS: Sturridge; Firmino; Coultinho

  4. I think Chelsea will beat liverpoo by hands down

  5. I think we can take down Chelsea or for that matter any team with a 3-4-2-1 formation. Opposition that tries to park a busload of defenders, we should take opportunities to shoot from outside the box rather than bringing the ball into the box.

  6. Chelseafc formation 4.3.3.I think they can beat any opponent and retain the league this year(2016/2017)championship.
