Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side will look to maintain its 100% Premier League start this Sunday when they meet Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
The Reds have won their opening five league games of the season and sit five points clear at the top of the table for now.
However, Frank Lampard’s young Chelsea side has shown significant improvement in recent weeks with Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham, in particular, really coming into form.
Klopp’s Reds will need to be at their best to take anything from Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
In goals, Adrian will continue in place of the injured Alisson Becker. The Brazilian will more than likely not be back in action until October at the earliest.
At the back, I think it will be the regular four that Klopp has stuck with for the most part this season – Trent Alexander-Arnold on the right, Andrew Robertson at left-back and Joel Matip partnering Virgil van Dijk in the centre.
The midfield trio should be Fabinho – he’s pretty much undroppable now – with Jordan Henderson and Gini Wijnaldum just in front of the Brazilian
The Reds should have a full-strength attacking lineup of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mané.
Predicted Liverpool lineup (4-3-3) Vs Chelsea: Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mané
